Abstract:

Recent improvements in Naval Communications electronics and the automation of a significant portion of message processing has done much to reduce the problem of writer-to-reader delay. What delays that still remain are the time-consuming manual message preparation processes that are concentrated at the message drafter and transmission preparation phase. This thesis analyzes the outgoing message preparation process for message creation to electronic transmission with respect to speed and accuracy. System and User requirements are translated into a preliminary software design for personal computer-based Message Management system. The design methodology used is a combination of Structured Design Technique and Hierarchical Input-Process-Output HIPO to show system relationships and documentation of module contents.
