The objective of this study is to establish an initial plan for development of a prototype unified data base UDB and of a data generating technology base DGTB of human resources information for use in weapon system design. The total study consisted of four tasks a existing Air Force, Army, Navy, and other data systems which could support the UDB were reviewed, b the weapon system design and acquisition process was assessed in order to establish the concept of operation of a UDB, c user needs were identified in terms of the adequacy of the data systems investigated, and d an initial plan for the development of a prototype UDB was established based on the results of the first three tasks and on an industry survey. This report addresses the fourth task in which a a concept for the UDB was developed, b a concept for the operational use of the UDB was developed, and c an initial plan for the development of a prototype UDBDGTB was established. This development plan addresses the initial structure, content, and process for a prototype UDBDBTB which is evolving in a heuristic manner. Author
