Information : Information Center Concept
The Oak Ridge Y-12 Plant has created a corporate Information Center database to receive both classified and unclassified information from a variety of sources including production, manufacturing, personnel, environmental, laboratory results, certification and analysis databases. The Information Center database, a daily repository of all electronically derived data, is updated every day to provide VAX/VMS easy-to-use data access and reporting tools. A unique information Access Control System was developed based on a need-to-know philosophy because of security requirements at the facility and the sensitive nature of the data. The Information Center, while protecting its data, allows a user to access updated corporate data in a usable format without disturbing the facility's main system database and regular daily operations. It is expected that the Information Center will reduce software development costs by encouraging users to develop and maintain their own sources of data and applications.
