The purpose of this MBA project was to conduct a feasibility study and a cost benefit analysis of using thin-client computer systems instead of traditional networks onboard United States Navy ships. The project examined the technical capabilities of thin-client computer systems to ensure they will operate with the required shipboard software and in a shipboard environment. A cost benefit analysis was also conducted to identify the possible cost savings to the Navy through the shipboard use of thin-client computer systems. The results of this analysis showed that thin-client computer networks are a costeffective, long-term network solution for use onboard United States Navy ships. Because of the incompatibility of some current shipboard software and software systems with thin-clients, a thin-client network including a small number of personal computer workstations may be required until the software is made compatible.
