Abstract:

Data collected by the RADC Data Collection and Repository System may be stored as documents andor entered into a data base. This document explores alternate data structures, data management systems, data storage devices, and data entry devices that may be used for the data base. General recommendations are made based on the need for flexibility, security, growth potential, and ease of implementation and use. The basic recommendations are Data should be entered via intelligent terminals at the source. The data base should be close to the point of use which means some decentralization. Data should be stored in serial records and accessed via indexes. Data acess should be through a data management system which separates the logical view of the data from the physical structure and protects the data from unauthorized access or change. Author
