This column is the third installment in a walk-through of the key tasks in each of the five fundamental phases of a project plan to build a meta data repository: orientation, feasibility, design, construction and rollout. This month we will target the first two key deliverables of the design phase (see Figure 1): meta data tool evaluation and selection, and constructing the integration architecture document. Next month's column will cover creating detailed design documents and training development staff.

The purpose of the design phase is to document the specific processing and reporting requirements of the meta data repository project. The key deliverables in this phase are an evaluation of meta data tools, construction of the integration architecture document and detailed program design specifications.
