Abstract:

The increased administrative burden being placed upon the Fleet increasingly affects ship performance and personnel morale and retention. The Shipboard Non-tactical ADP Program SNAP is being instituted in order to alleviate these burdens. However, the applications approach being used with SNAP is not sufficient to meet both the functional and management needs of the Fleet. The management environment necessary to satisfy both of these needs are discussed. The central theme is that of centralization and standardization of data, its definition, and its control. Fundamental to the above philosophy is the concept of Information Resource Management IRM. Automation of IRM should be done via a Data Base Management System DBMS. The critical tool required to transfer IRM results to a DBMS is the Data Dictionary System DDS. Additionally, two crucial management positions, the IRM manager and the Data Base Administrator DBA, are essential to the success of this data base approach. Author
