Abstract : This thesis sought to determine the feasibility of developing a microcomputer-based system designed for use by enlisted personnel on board a U.S. Navy FBM Submarine Tender in producing daily high-priority requisition 'Hot List' reports. These reports are used for management of critical repair jobs on FBM Submarines during brief refit periods. Management personnel from several tenders were interviewed, and a list of requirements, both administrative, and user--oriented, was developed. A software application using dBASE III PLUS was developed, tested, and validated. Coding developed for this program meets or exceeds the identified needs and includes improvements suggested during testig and validation. The resulting software program is an easy to install, easy to use, data base report program designed to support all FBM tenders in the Atlantic Fleet Program operation does not require knowledge of dBASE by the user, and entails almost no training. The program operates on a PC-compatible micro-computer with 384K RAM, one hard disk drive, one 5-1/4-in. floppy disk drive, a monitor (monochrome or color), and an 80-column printer capable of using continuous form paper. Although designed specifically for FBM Tenders, alterations to the software could allow support to other facilities.
