An analysis was conducted to determine the feasibility of modifying the existing System-Wide Project for Electronic Equipment at Depots-Extended SPEEDEX system. This modification would provide the capability of generating computerized depot surveillance records. This paper is concerned with three areas 1 Determination of the cost of the present manual system 2 Estimating the cost required to modify the existing computer system to provide the necessary inputoutput formats and data storage requirements and 3 A cost comparison of both systems. The results are that it would pay for itself in four 4 years. Author
