The purpose of this thesis is to design and implement a prototype graphical user interface for a structured model management system. The program is written for an IBM PC using Lattice-C, the Halo graphics package, and the ORACLE DBMS. Design and Implementation issues are discussed and evaluated. Future enhancements to the program and a recommendation as to the disposition of the prototype are also included. A brief explanation of structured modeling is presented. An example problem is used to illustrate the various model representation of structured modeling from a database representation. The results of this thesis show that the prototype design methodology is an excellent supplement to the traditional life-cycle design methodology. The implications of this observation are discussed in relationship to the graphical user interface program.
