Abstract : The strategic planning process at the Navy Accounting and Finance Center (NAFC) involves the collection, development, and evaluation of a large amount of complex data gathered from numerous sources. Microcomputer applications are available to NAFC that will ease the workload and provide the planning staff additional time to develop supplemental information for management's use in decision-making. The Orkand Corporation has identified several microcomputer applications of potential benefit to the Planning Branch at NAFC. This report describes the potential application of an automated system, along with generic procedures for implementation. Chapter II of this report discusses the potential uses and implementation procedures of four software packet applications: word processing and graphic functions; decision tree techniques; network analyses; and modeling techniques. Chapter III discusses procedures for evaluating available software packages and provides a list of software packages currently available which perform the function discussed in Chapter II.
