Abstract:

This thesis examines the decision criteria used in monitoring personnel within the United States Marine Corps. Given the decision criteria used in the manual process, a prototype Decision Support Personnel Monitoring Database System is developed using the dBASE III query language. The system is designed to run on a microcomputer and allows the user to add, modify, delete or review all databases. Personnel reports can be generated identifying all officers eligible for a specific billet or all billets that an officer is qualified to fill. This real-time personnel monitoring system is used to assist the personnel monitors in matching vacant job assignments with eligible qualified Marines. Keywords Decision Support, Personnel Monitoring, Database System.
