Abstract:

The purpose of this thesis was to research the requirements for, and develop, a microcomputer based database application to automate establishment management of the Royal Australian Air Force RAAF motor transport MT fleet at the Directorate of Movement and Transport Air Force DMOVT-AF. This application was assessed as the priority module for development by DMOVT-AF as part of a larger management information system MIS for RAAF MT assets. This research selected systems analysis tools and the most appropriate software, determined user requirements, developed, evaluated, and validated a prototype system. The resulting software application, the Motor Transport Establishment Information System ESTAB, met user requirements, improved efficiency, and accuracy at DMOVT-AF. It was designed to operate on IBM compatible personal computers in accordance with Australian Department of Defense DESINE standards. ESTAB integrates data from various sources and provides the ability to add, edit and report motor transport establishment information.
