Abstract:

The problems encountered by operational units of the U.S. Navy in meeting the requirements to submit a multitude of reports ranging from simple Fuel Status Reports to rigidly defined, computer formatted Movement Reports are almost overwhelming. The evolution of these requirements and recent attempts to simplify reporting are reviewed. A proposal is presented which outlines the development, test, and evaluation, and a gradual integration of a Composite Reporting System into the existing communications system. This Composite Reporting System is the logical predecessor of a Navy-wide Information System. Author
