The purpose of this thesis is to calculate a value for the return on investment (ROI) of the Consolidated Afloat Networks and Enterprise Services (CANES). The research examines previous work performed by the CANES team in the development of a business case for CANES. This thesis also discusses some of the intangible benefits of CANES and difference between cost savings and cost avoidance. The thesis focuses on quantifying the possible benefits of upgrading the current shipboard network system to the CANES system, and determining whether those benefits are likely to be realized in actual operations. The researcher calculated a CANES ROI of 73 percent. A sensitivity analysis was performed to examine how ignoring cost avoidance affects the calculated value of ROI, along with how much other input factors would have to change in order to make the CANES investment unattractive.
