This thesis provides an analysis of the organizational information system of the Marine Corps Air Station, Yuma, Arizona. A discussion of academic theory concerning structured systems analysis and design, local area network communications standards, and the characteristics of a local area network provide the theoretical foundation for the analysis and design of a local area network information support system for the Air Station. A survey was conducted to identify the problems and the functional requirements. Based upon this analysis, a local area network information support system is presented as a technologically viable alternative to the current information system. Implementation issues are presented as well as an implementation strategy which can be used to manage the change process. A cost-benefit analysis is presented to demonstrate the economic feasibility of the proposed local area network information support system. Finally, recommendations are presented for the Air Station's Local Area Network committee.
