AUTOMATED PLOTTER NEEDS STUDY OF THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS 1970-1975

THE PRESENT COMPUTERIZED PLOTTING EQUIPMENT OF THE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS CAN COPE WITH THE NORMAL GROWTH WORKLOADS OVER THE NEXT FIVE YEARS. HOWEVER, THIS EQUIPMENT WILL NOT SATISFY ANTICIPATED USER NEEDS RESULTING FROM AN INCREASED WORKLOAD IF NEW PROGRAMS ARE DEVELOPED; NOR WILL IT PROVIDE ADDITIONAL PHYSICAL ATTRIBUTES REQUESTED BY POTENTIAL USERS. DEVELOPMENT OF NEW COMPUTER GRAPHICS PROGRAMS AND PROCUREMENT OF A ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT WHEN JUSTIFIED IS RECOMMENDED AS A MEANS OF SATISFYING THESE NEEDS. ADOPTION OF THE PROPOSED RECOMMENDATIONS COULD RESULT IN AN APPROXIMATE SAVINGS OF $7 MILLION TO BE REALIZED OVER A FIVE-YEAR PERIOD. THE COST TO ACHIEVE THESE SAVINGS IS ESTIMATED TO BE $761,000 FOR NEW PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT, MORE EQUIPEMNT TO SUPPORT AN EXPANDED PROGRAM, AND OPERATIONAL COSTS TO MAINTAIN THE PROPOSED SYSTEM. /AUTHOR/
