Abstract : The Administrative Sciences (AS) Department of the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) has a very large database containing information regarding faculty activity in the areas of course instruction; thesis development, ongoing research, and academic service. Management of this information was disjointed and required considerable time and energy, and could be more efficiently handled with a software application. Subsequently, the choice was made to develop a database application that effectively manages these facets of the AS Department faculty workload. This thesis develops and implements the Faculty Workload Database System (FWDS) to support the AS Department. This thesis provides an in- depth discussion of the entire software application analysis, design, and implementation process. The system was produced using dBase IV, version 1.1 and will transition to operational status during FY 93.
