The selection was based on the cost of the computer hardware, the software capabilities and the hardware components. The writer selected NOVA 3/12 for the following reasons: 1. The cost of the system is low. 2. The operating system suits the proposed information system relative to real time processing. 3. The wide variety of computer languages utilized for the research, academic and management processing. The initial systems configuration for the NOVA 3/12 has a higher core capacity and also the expansion capacity is excellent. These items are very important in the selection process since the prime concern of the user is a system that meets the odds of obsolescence.

The Cost Study The various cost of
