Abstract or Summary
  • The establishment of a computerized data management system (DMS) for the OSU College of Forestry's properties is documented. The properties consist of about 14,000 acres and are used by many departments at OSU for instruction and research, as well as being managed for financial return. The steps followed in establishing the DMS were: 1.The potential users of the DMS that would assist in its establishment were identified. 2.Both the intended applications of the DMS and the variables to be stored were determined. 3.The capabilities that the basic DMS must have so that, with supplementary programming, the users' needs could be met were defined. 4.The basic DMS's located in the literature review were evaluated for adequate capabilities of data storage, retrieval, update, deletion and addition. 5.The DMS's having adequate capabilities were compared in several other areas, such as, compatibility with existing OSU equipment and cost of implementation. A DMS was then selected for implementation. 6.The DMS was implemented. This included determing data structure in storage, writing supplementary programs, and writing a user's manual. 7.The DMS was evaluated for how well it met the users' needs, ease of use, cost of use, and ease of modification. The steps followed, the defined users' needs and the conclusions presented should be applicable to any similar situation.
