This thesis deals with the concepts of Compact Disk (CD) technology, OPNAV INST 5230, and the concerns of the Commanding Officers of the Surface Forces of the Atlantic Fleet. OPNAV INST 5230 is the Navy and Marine Corps guidance on the implementation of CD technology. Review of current literature indicates the minimum requirements of the instruction are insufficient. Methods of improvements are discussed. Using the Systems Development Life Cycle as a framework, three methods of implementing CD-ROM technology are proposed. Management concerns are addressed, specifically, resistance to change when implementing a new technology. An economic analysis is also included. Commanding Officers of surface ships are surveyed to determine the extent of CD usage on ships, the types of training involved with their usage, concerns over the systems and the desire to participate in a pilot program should one be funded
