The paper presents a discussion of a specific information system, the Advanced Data Management ADAM system, which was established to help the designers and users of large computer-centered data-base systems. The historical background of information systems is included to provide a foundation for discussing the concepts and techniques of ADAM. An application of the ADAM system to a real problem is presented to illustrate the usefulness and practicability of the ADAM design philosophy. The main point which the authors wish to establish is that computer-centered data-base systems as exemplified by ADAM provide a useful and more advanced philosophy concerning data-base systems development than currently exists.
