Abstract
Over the years with advances in computer technology, the navy has gradually transitioned into a paperless operation. Personnel training records have provided a standardized, documentable individual qualification record for Navy aviation maintenance personnel, however these records continue to be kept in folders, stored in file cabinets. In addition, paper records create a maintenance burden, in that the continued handling and possibility of errors made during data entry and normal wear and tear of documents contained in these records, require pages to be periodically repaired, replaced or completely recreated. A torn and missing page also causes valuable training information to become lost, decreasing the information integrity of the record. This thesis will examine the benefits and problems in automating aviation training records, and further discuss database design issues and considerations to maximize the flexibility and functionality provided by automation. Incorporating a distributed database is discussed as a solution, with further discussion on further considerations for the proper implementation of a training record database.
