Abstract : Data structures and database management systems are central topics in university computer science curricula, and are common tools employed to deal with the administrative information of a university. It is becoming clear that an understanding of these topics is needed by a much wider audience, ranging from those interested in computer-aided design and manufacturing to those using micro-computers. Moreover, these tools are becoming increasingly valuable to academic programs as they develop comprehensive computer support systems. The wide use of these tools relies upon the relational data model as a foundation. Experience with the use of the IPAD(Integrated Programs for Aerospace-Vehicle Design) RIM5.0(Relational Information Management 5.0) program and at the University of Missouri-Rolla will be described.
