Abstract : RIM(Relational Information Management) has been selected as the data base management system for a prototype engineering materials data base under development at Martin Marietta Denver Aerospace. The data base will provide a central repository for engineering material properties data, thus facilitating their control. Numerous RIM capabilities are being exploited to satisfy prototype data base requirements. Numerical, text, tabular, and graphical data and references are being stored for five material types. Data retrieval will be accomplished both interactively and through a FORTRAN interface. The experience gained in creating and exercising the prototype will be used in specifying requirements for a production system.
