With the establishment of several computation-communication networks several questions arise as to the cost-effectiveness of a network for a particular potential user. Analysis is necessary to determine which software systems can be established and used on a network rather than the internal computer of users organization. The timings of transitions to the network must also be found. A methodology for costbenefit analysis is presented. For multiple systems, an extended horizon and restricted resources, an integer programming method is developed. Approximations for planning and a discussion of stability are given. A numerical example is included. Author
