Abstract:

This guide addresses the issues raised by the introduction of personal computing in the workplace. It focuses on the issues that should be considered if the proliferation of end-user computing is to be managed within the installation and it provides guidance to installations which are planning, implementing, or operating an Information Center IC to support microcomputer users. The Army Institute for Research in Management Information, Communications, and Computer Sciences AIRMICS is the research arm of the U.S. Army Information Systems Engineering Command. AIRMICS is currently conducting research into the implementation and operation of ICs, both in government and in private industry. One of its research goals was to produce this guide for use by the Army in the planning, implementation, and operation of ICs. It is based upon the experience of operating ICs in government and industry. This information was obtained from interviews, questionnaires, literature, and conferences. In an additional study under the direction of AIRMICS, information was gathered from six Army installations during two site visits at each site Fort Stewart, Georgia Fort Monroe, Virginia Fort Hood, Texas White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico Rock Island Arsenal, Illinois and Fort Ord, California. Information gained from the experiences at each of the sites was incorporated into this manual.
