Data Management Systems for Structured Information Retrieval. Interim Report.
Groner, Leo H.; Goel, Amrit L.
In this study the advantages and problems involved in using Generalized Data Management Systems (GDMS) to expand the capabilities of information retrieval (IR) systems are investigated. In particular, the design of a Data Manager-1 (DM-1) based system for the Reliability Analysis Center (RAC) at Griffiss AFB, Rome, New York is studied. A design methodology involving a cost criterion is developed. Total system cost and use cost components for each potential system output is explored. System cost is then obtained as a function of these cost components and user demand for outputs. This methodology is then applied to a set of design problems relevant to GDMS/IR data base design. A proposed data base for RAC embodying the solutions to these problems is then given. (Author)
