This thesis explores the creation of a conceptual design for a database that would assist any Naval shore command with its internal information needs. The database is intended to be a multi-user database accessed via a local area network LAN. The thesis examines the administration and information needs of the command as an interrelated whole rather than as individual division and departments. As the Navy changes to meet different world situations, the need for administrative and management information within a shore command has increased. Most shore commands have attempted to meet this need with single-user relational databases. Often these databases are poorly designed and incorrectly implemented. This project uses the enhanced entity relationship model to create a conceptual design for an administrative database. This basic model can be customized to fit the needs of a shore command. Fleet Numerical Oceanography Center, Monterey, CA was used to represent a typical mid-sized shore command to develop the basic model and prototype.
