Abstract : The Advanced Degree Requirements Information System (ADRIS), an interactive data retrieval system that resides on the CDC Cyber 74 computer system, was updated and enhanced. The system provides AFIT staff and faculty members information pertaining to Advanced Academic Degree job positions in the Air Force and to officers who possess advanced degrees. Changes were made to ADRIS to make it easier to use and to provide much needed enhancements. Extensive testing was performed throughout the systems modification, and two primary users of the system were involved in evaluating the changes. The operational system was used as a basis for comparison tests to insure tally information in reports was accurate. The program library containing all source code, data files, and procedure files was restructured to make it easier to use during future system enhancements or maintenance. A system user's guide and maintenance guide were revised to reflect all changes made to the system and to provide additional information not previously documented. (Author)
