However, sports personnel and general business personnel typically differ in educational background and
computer experience, the sports person often unaware of the advantages offered by computers. Consequently, this thesis's purpose is to:
l. Introduce sports organizations to the potential
usefulness of small computer systems,
2. Present a definitional review of basic small computer
hardware components and software concepts,
3. Provide a methodical procedure for planning and selecting
a computer system appropriate for the organization's data
processing requirements, and
4. Illustrate, via case study, use of the proposed
methodology in an actual organized sports environment.
