The need for data management standardization has been clearly identified by the Office of the Secretary of Defense as a means to realize savings in the 9 billion dollars spent annually on information technology in DOD and to further the sharing of information. This thesis discusses the importance of data requirements, functional requirements, logical database design and application design for a prototype microcomputer dictionary system for standardizing, storing, updating and viewing data elements, the lowest level in the hierarchy of metadata. This prototype dictionary is then implemented in a powerful relational database management system, Paradox 3.0. This system will help developers within DOD to build, store, track and use standard data elements.
