Abstract : The NAVTRASYSCEN began the automation of its office activities by putting inplace a significant number of microcomputers (MC's), primarily Zenith Z-120s, and a variety of software programs and peripherals. This study had two broad objectives: (1) Identify and survey the location and utilization of MC systems at the Center; and (2) Evaluate the changes in employee productivity and MC satisfaction resulting from the use of the MC systems. Supervisor and individual survey questionnaires were developed and administered to all NAVTASYSCEN employees. The questionnaires asked employees for the location and utilization of the MC systems, the estimated effects of using the MC's on their own productivity, and their satisfaction with these systems. A cost-benefit analysis was performed. Keywords: Office Automation, Productivity, Microcomputer, Word Processing, Database, Spreadsheets.
