This thesis is part of a project whose overall objective is to provide monitors in the United States Marine Corps a user-friendly PC-based database system, called the Monitor Assignment Support System (MASS), to help them in making assignment decisions. The objective of this thesis is to develop a conceptual model of the data needed to support the system transform the model into a relational schema and implement the design into an appropriate database management system (DBMS). Two data models are developed for this thesis. The first is an ideal, normalized model, and the second is a practical, denormalized one developed to facilitate the down loading of data from existing legacy mainframe systems to a PC-based system. Microsoft's Access DBMS software is used for the implementation of the MASS prototype. A rapid prototyping approach is used in developing the system. This approach was beneficial in encouraging active user participation and, through its iterative nature, was helpful in identifying the users' actual requirements. Significant lessons are learned from developing the prototype that will be helpful when implementing the production version.
