The Database Design Description (DBDD) describes the design of a database, that is, a collection of related data stored in one or more computerized files in a manner that can be accessed by users or computer programs via a database management system (DBMS). It can also describe the software units used to access or manipulate the data.
The DBDD is used as the basis for implementing the database and related software units. It provides the acquirer visibility into the design and provides information needed for software support.
This Data Item Description (DID) contains the format and content preparation instructions for the data product generated by specific and discrete task requirements as delineated in the contract.
This DID is used when the developer is tasked to define and record the design of one or more databases.
Software units that access or manipulate the database may be described here or in Software Design Descriptions (SDDs) (DI-IPSC-81435A). Interfaces may be described here or in Interface Design Descriptions (IDDs) (DI-IPSC-81436A).
This DID supersedes DI-IPSC-81437.
