Abstract

The preceding article describes a system based on an entity-attribute relationship data base. It assists developers in designing, building, testing and maintaining an integrated set of computer applications and comprises facilities to manipulate and interrogate information in the data base. Developers interrogate the data base to evaluate the impact of adding, changing, or removing design elements. The developers define entities such as fields, records, files, menus, modules, etc., which, together with their attributes, are related to each other in meaningful structures.
