Abstract : The Stock Point Logistics Integrated Communications Environment (SPLICE) concept is designed to augment the existing Navy Stock Point and Inventory Control Point ADP facilities, in response to increasing demands for data processing, within the scope of a decentralized telecommunications environment. This thesis provides a critical review of the existing plan for employment of Visual Display Terminals (VDTs) within the SPLICE concept. VDT employment considerations are examined and alternative VDT employment options are presented. A technical and economic analysis is performed for both the planned and proposed alternative VDT equipment and employment options. Recommendations based on these findings are then presented.
