Abstract : This thesis investigates the feasibility of providing an easy to use automated system for developing watchbills that can be used by commands throughout the United States Navy. Currently the generation of watchbills is a manual process which is both time consuming and frustrating. This thesis develops a limited model of a working prototype of a fully automated system to be tested by Fleet Numeric Meteorological Oceanographic Command. A requirements study was conducted to determine the needs for the new system, data models designed to implement the requirements, and a feasible automated system developed. The system is implemented in Microsoft Access using a series of clearly designed and visually pleasing forms to step the user through the watchbill generating process in a well defined and efficient manner.
