The Office of Information Technology (OIT) in PSU offers all computer services for the whole university community. For further development, especially under current down turn economic situation, OIT is going to propose a plan for the university to large segments of population and minimize the costs to face budget crisis problem. The project will discuss the most reasonable life cycle of faculty’s computers and maximize computers’ utilization. It will establish a life cycle model and based on the analysis results to evaluate different weights of different parameters, the model is used to do the best investment and maintenance of the university computers [1].


This project is only available to students, faculty, and staff of Portland State University.
