Abstract:

It is a well-known fact that even the best designed and most comprehensively tested computer system is subject to changes almost as soon as it is implemented. Errors, dissatisfied users, inefficiencies, and technological advances are some of the reasons for the changes. By the time this study is published, a number of changes will perhaps be in progress at the strategic planning level. This chapter addresses specific concerns and makes recommendations on present data dictionary issues as we move into the twenty- first century.
