Abstract

The Personal Data Manager (PDM) is a simple database system for personal computers. PDM is intended to provide personal information management capabilities for the large class of personal computer users who are not computer experts, and who have no programming experience. PDM simply attempts to make a personal computer serve as an extension of its user's memory. PDM is based on a simple conceptual database model that includes high-level semantic modeling constructs, such as objects, object kinds (types), attributes, and object frames. A prescriptive user interface allows the contents of the database and the structure on the information in the database to be changed dynamically. A working kind is a run-time collection of database objects defined via the user-interface; working kinds can be interactively restricted and expanded and made part of the permanent database. This paper discusses the design of the Personal Data Manager, including the conceptual information model, the user interface, and a prototype implementation.
