The United States Naval Academy is a federal organization charged with developing midshipmen morally, mentally, and physically, so that they may become future officers in the Navy and Marine Corps. In order to better monitor the development of midshipmen, the Academy requires some form of a performance measurement tool. Recently, the Midshipman Information Database System (MIDS) was created to store information about each midshipman. In 1999, the Company Officer Management Information System (COMIS) prototype was created to work in conjunction with MIDS to enhance a Company Officer's ability to develop midshipmen and measure their performance. This research involves presenting the COMIS prototype to a sample of Company Officers, and gathering their opinions through a survey. The results of the survey are compiled to determine how well COMIS is received by Company Officers and what improvements to COMIS should be made in the future. The results of this research show that Company Officers feel COMIS is a useful performance measurement tool, and that its development should continue. The best avenue of COMIS development is to incorporate it into a module of MIDS. Combining these two computer programs into one will significantly enhance the development of midshipmen well into the 21st century.
