The proliferation of microcomputer systems within Naval Aviation organizations in this decade has forced managers to rethink the role of information production. This thesis addresses the interaction of the organization process on information production, which Navy managers must be aware of in order to perform their job. The role of information management is examined to allow management to use existing microcomputer information systems capabilities more effectively. Discussion includes the impact of microcomputer systems on the flow of information, and microcomputer assistance to management in planning, problem solving, and decision making. Research findings indicate that management of microcomputers has increased the actual time and cost of information flow within organization units. Security of classified materials processed on microcomputers and training of user skills are deficient. Organizations need to incorporate a specialized computer manager.
