This thesis attempts to document the events environment, decisions, and personnel involved in the development, implementation and life cycle management of a computer software application. The computer application is developed using a prototyping methodology and a third generation software language for a Department of the Navy Headquarters Command. The data are presented in a case study format and are analyzed in accordance with software life cycle development principles and change management principles. The case methodology was considered the most applicable tool to showcase the complexity of decisions and processes of computer systems management. The case studies demonstrate the importance of adhering to proven software development principles throughout the life cycle management of a computer application.
