Abstract:

This thesis presents the design and implementation of the inventory database system. In order to effectively command and control the inventory of an Air Force, the commander must know the status of his resources. The use of a database management system can significantly increase his access to information regarding resource availability, location, state of operational readiness, and also increase end-user productivity, and decrease staff effort. The Semantic Data Model SDM was chosen as the method for designing the database. SDM provides an effective base for accommodating the evolution of the content structure and use of the database. After logical design of the inventory database, records are rearranged in order to satisfy relational database management system requirements. The inventory database is implemented by using the ORACLE relational DBMS. Author
