Abstract : The Civil Engineer Corps (CEC) is a small group of naval officers totaling approximately 1250 officers. Being a small community, the CEC attempts to capture the location and other relevant information of every CEC Officer at a given time and publish that information in the Chief of Civil Engineers Directory (P-i). The CEC detailers also produce and work off a Staffing Plan to help them manage the movement of officers. The current process of developing the Staffing Plan and P-1 is complex and arduous. This thesis examines existing systems at the CEC detail shop and explores the possibilities of developing a Detailing Management System. The intent is to develop a prototype application that links with existing systems to assist the detailers in the execution of their tasks including the streamlined production of the P-1 and Staffing Plan. A prototyping methodology is used to accomplish these goals. The methodology includes the following phases: Problem Definition, Requirements Analysis, Design Build/Revise prototype, and Finalize application The build phase is iterated through several end-user reviews to obtain the best possible product to support their needs. The completion of this thesis demonstrates that the concept of a detailing management program that meets the needs of the users is valid and must be addressed in future development of production systems. The application supports the immediate requirements of streamlining the development of the Staffing Plan and P-1 while providing additional detailing management capabilities.
