Database Administrator Facilities for Engineering Data Management
Databases in engineering are operated in a multi-disciplinary environment by users with different skills. Database administrator facilities have to be available to keep control over a database and to keep track on its contents. This paper deals with the database administration task and with the requirements for the facilities to support this task. As an example, the facilities for database administration in EDIPAS are used. EDIPAS (Engineering Data Interactive Presentation and Analysis System) has been designed and made operational at the National Aerospace Laboratory NLR (The Netherlands). This system provides a standard framework for the data management and the data evaluation and presentation tasks for a variety of engineering applications. It provides database administrator facilities to create a database, to inspect and to maintain the contents of the database, including the chosen user’s views on the data as stored in the database.
