1T21 envisions a Navy with tandardized, state-of-art computer systems. Based on this vision, Naval database management systems will also need to become standardized among Naval commands. Today most commercial off the shelf (COTS) database management systems provide a graphical user interface. Among the many Naval database systems currently in use, the Navy's Physical Readiness Program database has continued to exist at the command level in a DOS version. This version is outdated since it does not reflect current regulations and lacks many capabilities desired by training coordinators. A central question in the design of a graphical user interface is the need to create an application program which will allow Physical Readiness Coordinators at Naval commands to access the Physical Readiness Training database for local personnel in a windows-based environment without the need of a Database Management System environment (such as Microsoft Access). The design recommendations and implementation of a prototype are the primary research areas for this thesis
