Abstract : The purpose of this report is to identify the fundamental long range issues affecting the environment in which future Army ADP support must be provided and to discuss the emerging theories of ADP network management. This is one of several reports to be produced by the Multicommand Networks Project. Whereas other reports of this Project will make specific recommendations regarding Army installations, this report establishes a frame of reference broad enough to transcend all the alternatives to be considered. For the purposes of this report, the terms 'computer networking,' 'ADP networking,' and 'ADP consolidation' are considered to be synonymous. In the fullest sense of networking, each organizational element in the network can be a producer, or a consumer of ADP services, or both. (Modified author abstract)
