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

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