Abstract : The Management Information and Instructional Systems Activity at Memphis currently provides computer services to the Navy Computer Managed Instruction (CMI) system and numerous non-CMI users. This report presents information which can be used to maintain (CMI) system reliability and provides data to support expanding the system capability to serve an anticipated increase in the student load. The objectives of the study were to: . analyze the response time, interruptions, and availability of the CMI system; determine the impact of the non-CMI users on the ability of the system to respond to CMI requirements; identify the hardware/software limitatiosn of the present CMI system and explore possible improvements; analyze the relationship between computer downtime and lost training time to see if computer unavailability extends training time.
