The Emerging Role of the Data Base Manager. Report No. R-1253-PR.
Sawtelle, Thomas K.
The Air Force Logistics Command (AFLC) is revising and enhancing its data-processing capabilities with the development of a large-scale, multi-site, on-line, integrated data base information system known as the Advanced Logistics System (ALS). A data integrity program is to be built around a Data Base Manager (DBM), an individual or a group of people who provides the focal point for the coordination and control of data base functions. Data-related computing system activities serve as the basis for developing a statement of responsibilities for a DBM. The DBM can use education and indoctrination to create awareness of the role that each member of the organization plays in assuring data integrity. (Author/WH)
