Feasibility study on the development of a unified database for the RIDOT materials section

Eric Silva, University of Rhode Island

Abstract

The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) Materials Section currently uses approximately 40 separate databases, created in the 1990's using Microsoft Access, to store data from material testing. This paper is the first phase of a project to create a new unified Database Management System (DBMS) with the objective to determine the feasibility of creating a new system. The new system was designed by improving components of the old system and combining them into a single database to store all the data used by RIDOT. ^
