This thesis presents an initial orientation and general overview of the physical and managerial aspects of the field level site preparation process for the Source Data System (SDS), the automated distributed processing system which will implement Phase II of the Pay/Personnel Administrative Support System (PASS). It describes a systematic approach to terminal and printer requirements and allocation analysis, configuration design, and management of field level site preparation activities for a selected configuration. Forms and checklists developed by the author to implement the approach are described and explained in the main body of the thesis and included as Appendices. While the thesis specifically addresses the PASS/SDS system, the approach, forms and checklists developed could easily be adapted for use in supporting remote entry level site preparation involved in any distributed processing system.
