A primary mission for the Manpower Management Officer Assignment (MMOA) Branch of Headquarters, United States Marine Corps (HQMC) is the placement of trained and qualified officers into authorized billets both internal and external to the Marine Corps. In accomplishing their mission, the monitors and their support staff rely on a variety of information sources to assist them in their decision making. Access to this information, however, is neither quick nor easy and too much reliance is placed on paper reports and microfiche, which are often outdated. To remedy this situation, this thesis develops a prototype PC-based Monitor Assignment Support System (MASS) to assist monitors in their day to day activities. The focus of this thesis is on the development of the assignment process model and its implementation into a database application. The prototype downloads updated personal and performance information about an officer which is used by a Marine monitor to make assignment decisions. MASS was developed using Microsoft Access database management system which proved to be a powerful and easy to use tool for developing this prototype
