This document is the report of a study of some of the technical and economic factors involved in building and operating a shared, internationally distributed data processing system configured to meet the special needs of the Unites States-flag shipping industry for shipping operations information. The study concludes that the design of a cost-effective system of this kind needs additional information about the management reports to be produced and the volumes of data to be processed. The study recommends a pilot study to test the concept of such a shared system and to collect the data needed for design of the worldwide system.
