Abstract:

This study focuses on the Automated Data Processing ADP needs of the Army in the 1980s and the resources available to satisfy these needs. A new system called the Vertical Installation Automation Baseline VIABLE forms an important ADP resource that must be carefully examined to determine the Armys ADP shortfalls in a mobilization scenario. Analysis of VIABLE, as well as existing and important, new mobilization systems such as the Continental Army Management Information System-CAMUS attempt to assess the actual Army ADP requirements that must be satisfied. From this baseline, Army ADP Procurement is discussed in a mobilization setting when it will be necessary to rapidly acquire ACP resources. This includes a review of industry approaches to the timely acquisition of ADP. Lastly, a number of conclusions and recommendations on ADP preparedness for mobilization are included. Author
