Today's business environment in the Depattment of Defense (DoD) demands that managers possess a clear understanding of the design, implementation, and maintenance of the databases used to store, organize, manipulate and return data. In response to shoncomings identified in their current legacy information system, the Marine Corps Institute (MCI) initiated a project to migrate from a file processing database system to a relational database using a client/server system based on an open hardware and software architecture. This research provides a relational data model and migration plan in response to MCI's request. It investigates data modeling and database design using the Integration Definition for Information Modeling (IDEFiX) methodology and the relational model. It also addresses the migration of data and databases from legacy to open systems. The application of the IDEFiX model, supported by CASE tools to facilitate data modeling and database maintenance, reveals strategies for dealing with the complex issues of database design, migration, and maintenance in DoD
