Abstract : This thesis discusses the problems of information management within a Naval Shipyard. The research was conducted at Mare Island Naval Shipyard in Vallejo, California; however, the findings may apply on a much larger scale to all NAVSEA industrial facilities. Discussion is focused on the Shipyard MIS installed by the Bureau of Ships (BUSHIPS) in the early sixties to aid shipyard managers in accomplishing a complex overhaul of a modern vessel. Present system problems resulting in inefficiencies and information degradation are described and possible actions to improve information flow without cognitive overload are explored. Keywords: Data processing; ADP design; ADP user problems; Token ring; Network; Mainframe; These.
