DISTRIBUTED DATA PROCESSING IN A UNITED STATES NAVAL SHIPYARD

Ths Shipyard Management Information System is a computer-based system that processes data on virtually every element of operations within a United States Naval Shipyard. This thesis examines the characteristics and objectives of a general management information system and the philosophies of the Shipyard Management Information System as envisioned by the Naval Sea Systems Command. The motivations for, and the characteristics of, distributed processing as they apply to management information systems are presented. It will be shown how an effective distributed data processing system can be created from selective addition of equipment to, and purposeful personnel reorganization of, the data processing configuration at Mare Island Naval Shipyard.
