Abstract:

The Data Processing Department at the Navy Finance Center is presently undergoing a reorganization project which will eventually lead to the establishment of a service-oriented data center for pay and personnel purposes. Analysis and research were conducted to provide the Data Processing Department at the Navy Finance Center with information regarding effective and efficient management control system techniques. Both literature and field research uncovered management methods that have proven to be successful in the data processing managerial arena. Data centers in both the public and private sectors were sampled in an effort to identify current techniques utilized in the computer management field. Those techniques that stood out amongst others and might be considered feasible for future implementation at NFC included management by objectives, 3-5 year cycle and program planning, and project analysis studies performed at Hewlett-Packard Corporation.
