Abstract:

THE JUMPSMMS system was implemented by the Marine Corps in 1973. The performance of JUMPSMMS is considered unsatisfactory because the time delays in entering information into the system result in computed amounts that do not reflect the individual Marines current entitlements. Since the Marine Corps considers payment of all entitlements to date as important to morale, the use of the current JUMPSMMS system necessitates the parallel operation of the old manual system. This thesis explores the use of On-Line Real-Time systems to solve the problem of time delays and allow the phasing out of the manual system. The study particularly investigates internal controls in manual and On-Line Real-Time systems. The study concludes that an OLRT system would serve to reduce time delays, and that ADPE-FMF equipment could serve as the vehicle for implementing an OLRT system. Author
