This column is the fifth installment in a walk-through of the five fundamental phases of a project plan to build a meta data repository: orientation, feasibility, design, construction and rollout. The focus this month is the construction phase.

When the design phase is complete and the detailed design documents are approved and signed, it is time to begin constructing the back-end programs that will populate the meta data repository and the front-end programs that will present this information to the end users. The construction phase is a classic programming phase. During this phase, the project manager must ensure that the developers adhere to the repository implementation schedule. On the other hand, the repository architect will work with the developers to ensure all of the programs built are maintainable and run efficiently. Figure 1 summarizes the major endeavors in the construction phase.
