The objective of this point paper is to show how the Information Resource Dictionary System IRDS can fulfill critical design and operational requirements for CALS Phase II. First, a series of assumptions are made about the data management services which are needed by CALS Phase II. Next, these assumptions are used to develop a series of requirements for a dictionary system. The structure of the IRDS family of standards is then described. Examples are provided to illustrate how the IRDS could meet the requirements. A schedule is presented to show that the IRDS and other data management standards will be available when needed to meet the immediate requirements of CALS. An architecture is presented to illustrate additional standards required to achieve longer-range goals of distributed database. Finally, development tasks are recommended.
