FORCE Data Management System / User Interface

Principal Investigator:

Chad Amirault, SEG Consulting Inc.

Start Date:      April 2017

End Date:       June 2017

OERA has engaged SEG Consulting Inc. to assist in the definition and description of a Data Management System (DMS) and user interface solution for use by FORCE. This solution would enable FORCE to manage their large amounts of diverse project data and have it accessible to stakeholders and partners. Secondly, but equally important, the OERA would like to have a better understanding of how this DMS could integrate more broadly with the Nova Scotia tidal energy industry


Project Scope

  1. Conduct an assessment of current and future data types and uses.
  2. Develop DMS solution options.
  3. Develop a data management plan in the form of a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS). This plan will include a scope, schedule and budget for the implementation of the desired DMS solution;
  4. Conduct an industry-wide data management assessment. This assessment will include researching existing systems and predominant data sources in the Atlantic Canada region.
