Abstract : The advent of advanced microfilming and the recent release of the optical laser disk have changed the ways in which business organizations file and maintain office records and documents. This new automated technology provides computerized document management systems that, in the author's opinion, will eventually eliminate the traditional method of filing and maintaining manual document archives. Many business organizations have converted their manual file systems to microfilm or optical disk to reap the benefits of reduced storage space and elimination of cumbersome paper documents. The microfilming system or optical disk can replace the antiquated manual document storage system of Base Supply's Document Control Section. The purpose of this research analysis is to examine Base Supply's Document Control Section to assist the Standard Systems Center in determining which automated system, microfilming or optical laser disk, should be used to automate Document Control Section. This analysis includes Chapters One through Five. Keywords: Sperry 1100/60 computers; Interfaces.
