Abstract:

Organizations are becoming increasingly aware of the need for identifying and controlling their information resources. The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980 explicitly tasks federal agencies with establishing information policy and mechanisms for implementing that policy. As a result, increasing emphasis is being placed on information resource management IRM. The Deputy Chief of Staff for Plans, U.S. Army Military Personnel Center, has expressed a critical need for improved information resource management. At present, manpower projections developed through the use of manpower modeling by DCS Plans, determine the Armys manpower policies for both the officer and enlisted force. Not only does this shape the structure of the force, but it has a major budgetary impact on the Army. This thesis will model the current information resource management structure of DCS Plans and propose a solution. Keywords Information Engineering Data Dictionary Systems.
