Abstract : In October 1986, the Naval Postgraduate School was directed to centralize the accounting and control of minor property (approximately 60,000 items) and to locate that function in the Supply Department. The magnitude of this undertaking suggested that some sort of automated system be employed to assist in the task. The objective of this study was to implement a prototype automated system to support the control and accounting of both plant and minor property at the Naval Postgraduate School. The effort was based on a Requirements Definition and System Specification set forth in a thesis by Ross and Smith in March 1987. The study includes a description of the implementation effort, prototype code written in dBase III Plus, and a User's Quick Reference. The basic structure of the code and data base design should be applicable throughout the U.S. Navy Supply system. Keywords: Thesis; Inventory data base systems.
