This data requirements analysis was completed as part of the Life Cycle Management LCM process for development of an Officer Assignment Decision Support System OADSS. This document provides general information about system development requirements, describes data elements required by OADSS in detail, and discusses data collection responsibilities. A data modeling approach was utilized to detail the logical organizations of OADSS data elements in a normalized i.e., non-redundant form. This process was carried out by applying an entity level, or top down, approach and included identifying data entities, their keys, and other data elements they describe. A complete data model diagram for the OADSS data bases is provided along with descriptions of the 19 major data entities. Data elements are identified as static system data, dynamic input data, dynamic output data, or internally generated data. The organizational, operational, and developmental impact of OADSS data base collection, maintenance, and utilization is also discussed. It is recommended that a Project Management Plan PMP be completed as the next phase in the development of OADSS.
