Abstract : As part of the development of the Data Traffic Management System (DTMS), this report discusses potential interfaces between various existing and planned Army information management systems and data bases. Data elements which can be shared between various systems and databases are described. When such data exchange is inappropriate, this is reported. These potential interfaces were investigated by examining the systems' documentation materials and (in some cases) by interviewing people responsible for systems still being developed. Numerous possibilities for data exchange via DTMS were discovered. Keywords: Management information systems; Military construction; Computer files.
