Abstract : This thesis concerns the analysis, design, and partial implementation of a software package to automate the present manual system of conventional ammunition management onboard most ships of the U.S. Navy. Structured analysis and design techniques are utilized in the development and approximately one quarter of the application programs have been implemented. The system is designed for stand alone operation on an IBM compatible microcomputer using the relational database package dBase III Plus by Ashton-Tate. Follow-on work would consist of completing the application programs, select a pilot vessel and install the system, collect user comments, and modify the system as necessary. Keywords: Ammunition management, Ammunition inventory management, Database inventory system, Automated inventory system.
