This thesis examines the design and development of a desktop prototype of a computer wargame. The prototype specifically deals with the ability to format the Joint Theater-Level Simulation's Model Interface Program (MIP) into the visual interface format of computer graphics known as window management. In this case, the Apple Macintosh microcomputer, a desktop computer, was used as the operating system for implementation of this prototype. The development of the prototype is examined with respect to the current version of the MIP. The prototype development is based on software design applications which include design models, correlation of programming languages to operating systems, and a breakdown of the design into a modular format. The thesis concludes with recommendations for changes which can enhance the use of the prototype from both a technical and managerial standpoint.
