DEVELOPMENT OF THE MILITARY CONSTRUCTION DATA SYSTEM (MCDS), PART II

Three major activities in the on-going development of the Military Construction Data System are described. A revised structure for the data dictionary/directory is presented and the function of its various components explained. An experiment is described in which the contents of two data files maintained under the SYSTEM 2000 data base management software are transferred to a RAMIS installation. Finally a test interface between the MCDS data base and an independent application program is discussed. Recommendations for near-term development include the maintenance of selected "live" data files and provision of retrieval services for users. /Author/
