Abstract
The central idea of SDS is to capture all project-relevant information in one database; by providing comprehensive, up-to-date reports to management, visibility and project control are increased. The database organization depends on the methodology in use; a standard schema is supplied, but it can be extended or replaced as needed. This flexibility means that the database may include any type of information. SDS provides mechanisms for critical path planning and for recording design decision and checking them against a design model. The user interface is somewhat inconsistent, with data definition, input, and query languages, and various commands, utilities, and front-ends. The interface is not yet of a full production quality, though it has been improved as SDS has gone through several generations of implementation.
