Abstract : This thesis describes the functional requirements of the Shipboard Non-Tactical Automated Data Processing Program (SNAP II) : a micro-computer system designed to automate formerly manual procedures in the areas of shipboard supply, maintenance, and personnel/administration. A proposed Personnel Readiness and Training Management Subsystem (PTMS) is also described. Both systems are analyzed from a user's perspective. Recommendations are made regarding installation approach and composition of implementation teams. Applications for potential inclusion in SNAP II are also recommended. (Author)
