Pagination or Media Count:
The report considers the process of transition in the implementation of a new information system involving the period when responsibility for the new system is transferred from the design to the operating organization. Methods of parallel operation, pilot operation and direct conversion are discussed, along with the techniques by which the tasks of equipment installation, personnel training, file conversion, system monitoring and system modification are handled under each method. Experience obtained under Project SPEED, a project under a standard information processing system was implemented at a number of U.S. Army Depots, is used to develop a set of precepts that should serve to facilitate the transition process.
