Abstract : This Data Quality Engineering (DQE) Handbook describes the procedures adopted by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) for improving or restoring the quality of the data in corporate information systems. The handbook is written for team leaders and their team of functional 'users' of data and not necessarily a data administrator, database administrator, or other specially trained individual. The handbook is intended to be used by the person who creates or uses data and who has a vested interest in the reliability, validity, and accuracy of the data values stored in DLA database systems. Data Quality Engineering is a proven process for restoring the validity, accuracy, and reliability of the data maintained in information systems. The DQE methodology uses TQM principles.
