Abstract : The document describes the design and development of a Building and Spaces Information System. The system was designed to be used by the Naval Postgraduate School facility resource managers as a decision making aid. System analysis techniques were applied to the present facility resource decision system to determine its structure and information needs. Additional problem analysis was conducted to determine which of the needs could be incorporated into an information system. The intersection of the foregoing needs and the subsequent problem analysis determined the structure of the new system. The objective of the new system was to supply the managers with a centralized source of information with regard to existing facilities. A complete software package was designed, tested, and documented, but not implemented. An extensive users manual is provided to expedite implementation when it occurs. (Author)
