Data management standardization has been identified by the Office of the Secretary of Defense as a method to achieve saving in the $9 billion spent annually on information technology in DoD and to promote interoperability and information exchange among systems. Most efforts have been directed at standardizing data elements, the lowest level in the hierarchy of data, as a foundation for standardizing Management Information Systems within DoD. In this thesis, we propose extending the standardization effort to the schema level of an organization unit. We examine the administrative functions carried out aboard a generic Navy ship and develop a data model (view) for each function. the administrative functions addresses are Drug and Alcohol Program Advisor, Watch, Quarter and Station Bill, Safety, Medical and Security. The separate views are integrated to form a global, high-level conceptual model. this complex view is then simplified by creating higher levels of abstraction using an entity clustering technique.
