Abstract: De Leuw, Cather & Co. has recently designed and is in the process of implementing a nationwide, automated maintenance management system for the National Park Service (NPS). The project will require the design and documentation of a state of the art microcomputer based maintenance management system, the purchase and installation of 300 microcomputers, and the training of over 3000 maintenance related personnel. The project was initiated in July 1986 and will be completed in December 1989. With this project, the NPS has demonstrated interest in supporting its' management and operations staff with the best tools available. It has positioned itself as a leader in federal agencies with large, complex maintenance operations, and will ensure the preservation of the nation's natural, historical and recreational resources.
