Abstract

An experimental decision making support system for selecting appropriate online databases is presented. Three levels of metadata and primitive functions for manipulating metadata are proposed to provide basic functions of the decision making system. Primitive functions and metadata extracted from existing databases are classified into three levels from the following viewpoints: (1) degree of precision of decision making for database selection, (2) property of metadata that give criteria for selecting appropriate databases. From these viewpoints, we present a systematic design methodology for database selection in multidatabase environments. Furthermore, a primitive function set for selecting appropriate databases is exemplified to show feasibility of our proposed system.
