Abstract:

As increasing data processing power becomes available at decreasing cost, greater numbers of nontechnical personnel are gaining access to automated systems that enhance their productivity. However, the sharp distinction between each of the support packages, and the requirement for the user to become familiar with different models, concepts and vocabularies is a barrier to reaching higher effectiveness. The premise is that these common support systems have equivalent functions and a large intersection of operations that can be integrated. It is the purpose of this thesis to study a possible Integrated Application Software System IASS that will combine the needed capabilities into a functional system and present the user with a single data model and vocabulary set. The data model which is proposed for use by the IASS is the relational data model, since it is universally understandable, and has a robust theoretical foundation. Author
