1 August 1990 Requirement analysis for PACS database system
Author Affiliations +
The sound design of any system begins with a full understanding of user requirements and the environment in which the system is to operate. The process of obtaining this understanding is called requirement analysis. The design of a Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) Database (DB) also starts with a requirement analysis, following a systematic top-down DB design approach. The purpose of a DB requirement analysis is to provide the information necessary for deriving DB design specifications. This paper presents the results and implications of a year long intensive requirement analysis for a PACS DB at the University Medical Center (UMC) of the University of Arizona (U of A).
