The Civil Engineer Corps (CEC) is a small group of naval officers totaling approximately 1250 officers. Being a small community, the CEC attempts to capture the location and other relevant information of every CEC Officer at a given time and publis h that information in the Chief of Civil Engineers Directory (P-1). The CEC detailers also produce and work off a Staffing Plan to help them manage the movement of officers. The current process of developing the Staffing Plan and P-1 is complex and arduous. This thesis examines existing systems at the CEC detail shop and explores the possibilities of developing a Detailing Management System. The intent is to develop a prototype application that links with existing systems to assist the detailers in the execution of their tasks including the streamlined production of the P-1 and Staffing Plan. A prototyping methodology is used to accomplish these goals. The methodology includes the following phases: Problem Definition, Requirements Analysis, Design, Build/Revise prototype, and Finalize application. The build phase is iterated through several end-user reviews to obtain the best possible product to support their needs. The application supports the immediate requirements of streamlining the development of the Staffing Plan and P-1 while providing additional detailing management capabilities.
