The Commander in Chief Pacific Fleet Propulsion Examining Board CINCPACFLT PEB is a professional group of naval officers experienced in engineering readiness. This group of naval officers conducts examinations to assess the engineering readiness of the Pacific Fleet. There are two classes of examinations conducted by the PEB. The Operational Propulsion Plant Examination OPPE assesses the engineering readiness when the ship is underway. The Light Off Examination LOE assesses the engineering readiness after a ships propulsion plant has been secured, for example overhauls, in excess of ninety days. The examination data is then collected in the exam summary worksheet and entered into the database. The current database system uses the dBASE IV Plus database management system DBMS software and is constructed as a flat file system. Redundant data, inaccuracies, and inefficiencies are prevalent throughout the current system. The purpose of this thesis is to design a relational database Propulsion Examining Board Database System PEBDS, implement and replace the current system, and provide a user friendly graphical user interface GUI. The PEBDS and the GUl are constructed using Paradox for Windows Version 4.5 DBMS software.
