Abstract
Intranets are a recent development in information technologies which have provided a wealth of IS utility. "Intranet" refers to the use of World Wide Web technology to manage information within an organization - a self-contained Internet running on a LAN or WAN. Generally, the technologies used include web servers, browsers, hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP), hypertext markup language (HTML) pages, and search engines. Many organizations are now using or building intranets to distribute, collect, and share timely, consistent, and accurate information. The Systems Management (SM) Curricular Office at the Naval Postgraduate School presently relies on an inefficient paper-based system for distributing and collecting information from students. This thesis examines how an intranet can overcome the limitations of the current paper-based system. Rapid Application Development (RAD) methodology is used to conduct an analysis of current data flows and processes, and develop a working prototype of an intranet
