This exploratory mixed methods study quantified and explored leadership interest in legacy-data conversion and information processing. Questionnaires were administered electronically to 92 individuals in design, manufacturing, and other professions from the manufacturing, processing, Internet, computing, software and technology divisions. Research decisions based on the analyses of the 69 selected responses from survey. Digital conversion problem for non-obsolete piece-part specifications from paper records to online databases were investigated. Leadership interest of 27.5% indicated combinations of time, money, and resources were primary reasons for voids in the online unconverted information. The 49% concurrence for all users benefiting from the Internet database accessing rendered caution for the information managements in data conversions. Triangulated decision on the leadership theme came from 49.28% agreements on the difficulties of finding valid information through paper search that led to increased costs in engineering endeavors. Null hypotheses were rejected based on the critical statistical significance of (p = 0.01) in goodness-of-fit test calculations through SPSS statistical evaluations. The interdependencies for variables in the survey instrument determined through statistical test of independence with (p = 0.005) significance.
