Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to provide an inventory database management system for a Republic of Korea (ROK) Army infantry division. Since 1973, the ROK Army has significantly improved its capability in logistics management by using computer systems. However, the operational level of command (the division) has some difficulties in meeting higher command requirements because of the unavailability computer hardware and software. As of last year, the computer hardware was installed at the division level. User friendly software development has become another requirement for effective use of this computer hardware. To help meet this objective, this thesis provides a database management system for the manager who works at the division logistics section, and for the Quartermaster battalion which is the major unit to handle material within the division. To meet the objective, the author of this thesis concentrated on writing user friendly interface programs within the current logistics management system. By applying the proposed system, the Army can improve one of its logistics objective, ie automatic data processing. This can contribute to the logistics management system implementation by allowing the division to generate more accurate reports is less time, and to improve inventory management by shortening the administrative process.
