Abstract : This software conversion study was made in support of the procurement of hardware upgrades to the 38 Maintenance Processing Subsystems (MPSs) which are the host computers for the Remote Maintenance Monitoring System (RMMS). Two major functions are provided by the RMMS: (1) Monitoring and Control via the Interim Monitoring and Control Software (IMCS) and (2) Management Information via the Maintenance Management System (MMS). This study analyzed the costs/benefits of upgrading the MPS hardware with either a fully compatible conversion or a totally non-compatible, for the MMS were analyzed using the Federal Software Management Support Center's (FSMC's) Conversion Cost Model. The study was performed according to the standards outlined in the FSMC report Preparing Software Conversion Studies - Report OIT/FSCS-84/001. This report describes the development of the cost and staffing schedule requirements for both the compatible and non-compatible conversion alternatives.
