Abstract:

There is much to be done to update the Naval Reserve automated information systems to 1980s technology. This thesis analyzes the Naval Reserves automated information system- the Reserve Training Support System RTSS. It presents the systems background and specifications, its problems and the Reserves own plan to resolve these problems. After a discussion on the characteristics of an effective automated information system, RTSS is critiqued. The key issue is the obsolescence of the hardware and software being used. To alleviate their information problems, the Reserves must develop a plan to implement new hardware and software technology in a coordinated fashion. An alternative is presented to the traditional system development process prototyping. Relational database theory is briefly discussed. ORACLE, a relational database management system, is used to implement the database prototype that serves as an example of how current technology can be used to eliminate many of the Naval Reserves information problems.
