Abstract
This thesis addresses IBM's Business Systems Planning (BSP) methodology to design a computer-based information system for the Chinese Marine Corps Field Maneuver Controlling And Evaluation Operation (FIOP) . It initially describes the current manual system fay identifying each organizational group and the functions each perform. BSP is then defined including its background, underlying concepts and potential benefits. Finally, the 3SP methodology is applied to FIOP resulting in a list of data classes, a process/data class matrix and an information flow diagram. The conclusion is that a computer-based system for FIOP is both feasible and worthwhile. The recommendations are that a steering committee of major FIOP users be formed to devise obtainable and measurable objectives; that a BSP expert be hired to act as a consultant/coordinator for this project and finally, that the implementation plan be reviewed annually to ensure its continued cost effectiveness.
