Abstract:

Many of the larger construction and consulting firms have already realized the potential of investments in computer systems and are currently reaping the benefits. Unlike the larger corporations, small firms normally have neither the personnel assets nor the capital to devote to the investigation and analysis of systems that would best meet their needs. With this in mind, this paper will be devoted to determining needs for computer systems, outlining procedures for obtaining a computer, hardware features associated with most computers, generalized overview of software programs, price ranges to be expected and a detailed look at four systems currently on the market.
