Abstract:

The objective of this thesis is to determine if a mainframe computer Automated Information System can be simulated on a conventional microcomputer. To this end, the topical areas of software, hardware the simulation development lifecycle, and systems testing and evaluation are explored in-depth. The purpose of this in-depth subject area examination is to demonstrate the tradeoffs and decision points encountered in the systems management lifecycle. Recommendations based upon these tradeoffs and decisions are then presented. Lastly, the conclusions address the attainment of the thesis objective.
