Abstract
This thesis examines the limits to on-board training and readiness imposed upon the submarine community by manual data collection and record systems. It proposes an integration of web-based applications under the Balanced Scorecard management approach as a solution. Specifications are included for fiber optic LAN Infrastructure design, network client workstations, network servers and IT-21 compliant network operating systems, producing applications and web augmentation tools. A description of relational database design is provided that encompasses database objects, data types and table relationships. Web design issues and network security issues are examined. Complete code for a prototype of the system in Microsoft Access is appended. Recommendations are made for using an n-tier network architecture to automate the submarine training and readiness processes in small project modules using an incremental Prototype development approach. An n-tier architecture supports custom applications and commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components, supports component reuse and encapsulation, provides a consistent, secure and auditable access to data and will allow faster production at less risk. Recommendations are made for using Microsoft products that support n-tier architecture and are consistent with the Navy's IT-21 standards.
