The purpose of this thesis was to program a database system written in dBase III Plus for use in AFITLSM. The system was to be hosted on a personal computer so that it could be transportable between the different computers in the office and conveniently used by as many personnel as possible. The program was intended to replace as much manual paperwork as possible and to provide a means to quickly access, sort, and to efficiently answer queries regarding the department faculty. The final result was intended to automate the routine office functions. This automation would relieve the department personnel from mundane duties so that they could concentrate their time on more productive pursuits. The product of these efforts was the Integrated Faculty Information System IFIS. The IFIS is a menu driven system that utilizes 19 databases that are interrelated to form one large database system. The database system has the capability to contain all the vital professional and demographic information on each member of the staff. The IFIS provides a means to input all the appropriate information and to modify preexisting information within the database system.
