dc.description.abstractDining facilities aboard naval vessels, generally referred to as messing facilities, are grouped into the two distinct categories of general messes and private messes. This thesis is directed towards automating the transaction processing in the area of private messes and generally providing improved decision support to the mess treasurer. Officers and chief petty officers are authorized to establish private messes and today every naval vessel maintains at least one and sometimes several private messes. Membership is restricted by regulation and the costs of operation are borne by the membership on a prorated basis. The methods for such prorating can vary from one mess to another and the assets held by each mess can range in value from several hundred to several thousands dollars. Financial management of the mess is performed by an elected mess treasurer. This thesis examines the design and development of an automated information system to support the records keeping and reporting functions for private messes afloat. A system life cycle method was used to develop the program, Private Mess Accounting System (PMAS). This computer program was then demonstrated for potential users and statistical information was gathered and analyzed on the program's potential impact. Keywords: Management information systemsen_US
