Abstract:

This research is part of a year long project commissioned by the Marine Corps Institute to develop the architecture and supporting migration plan to transition from an existing legacy system to an open, clientserver based relational database management system DBMS for the Student Services Department SSD. The objective of this thesis is to develop the As-Is process model, redesign the processes to increase efficiency and reduce costs, and develop a To-Be process model to improve the current business processes. Additionally, data flow diagrams of the To-Be processes are developed to assist in prototype design and implementation. The DoD standard IDEFO modeling technique is used for developing the process models. implementation recommendations include 1 adopting an ongoing reengineering strategy at MCI supported by the information systems architectures, methodologies and CASE tools, and 2 utilizing a single database to facilitate data sharing among MCI departments, streamline processes, far facilitate automation, eliminate data redundancy, and improve customer service.
