Effective Microcomputer Management: An Executive Level Guide.
NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CA
Pagination or Media Count:
A major hardware buy of Zenith microcomputers and peripherals was begun by the U.S. Navy in 1983 to equip squadrons, afloat units, and staffs with desktop computer capability. This contract provided considerable savings in hardware acquisition costs and the potential, with proper software, to radically improve the effectiveness of individual commands. This improvement has not been realized in many commands, due mainly to a lack of understanding of what a computer system is, how to ensure effective applications, and how the system should interact beyond the command. This thesis, aimed at the commanding officer, discusses management of a microcomputer system. It includes basic microcomputer capabilities and limitations, economics considerations, program requirements, training, and recommendations for enhancing microcomputer effectiveness. Author
