Abstract
This thesis describes the complete development process of a friendly functional Intranet for an operational United States Coast Guard (USCG) electronic Support Unit (ESU) in Alameda, California. The final product is suitable for immediate use. It may also be used as a prototype for future Intranet development efforts. The methodology used to develop a finished, working product provides the core subject matter for this thesis. The discussion concentrates on why certain applications were developed and what benefits they provide. The Intranet was developed in seven unique stages of the Waterfall Model of information systems design. The Waterfall Model traces a systems development lifecycle from planning, to logical design, through physical design, and finally ends with the implementation process. Each stage of the model is addressed in this thesis. Intranet technology provides a radical new means of communicating throughout an organization. This new technology has the potential to change the organization. Elaboration on both the social and technical aspects of introducing an information systems change to the ESU is included
