Abstract : This thesis describes a new data management design for the Joint Warfare Analysis Experimental Prototype (JWAEP), a joint theater level, low resolution stochastic simulation developed at the Naval Postgraduate School. The design calls for (1) a 32 bit Windows program to access the JWAEP data which is stored in a SQL database server, (2) direct output of the database information into the plain text input files on the Unix host machine, and (3) remote execution of the JWAEP model via the network. The viability of this design is demonstrated in the JWAEP Management Information System (JMIS) prototype program. JMIS is shown to be capable of achieving the stated design features; however, due to the size of the JWAEP database, it has not provide a full implementation of each of the design features. In addition, this thesis discusses the issues that have to be considered to maintain JMIS in synchronization with future developments in JWAEP.
