Many organizations with computerized information systems have to contend with the problem of selecting the computer system that best fits their needs. This paper addresses the subject, and focuses upon a specific aspect of the problem: the selection of a computer-family for the entire organization. The practice of selection is briefly described and the term "computer-family" defined. A structured methodology and the process associated with it are then developed and discussed. The outlined methodology is then validated through a detailed description of its implementation in a large organization.
