The operation of data-base has been made possible by the development of sophisticated softwares which in turn were the results of the development of smaller and faster memory units. Only about ten years has passed since the notion of data-base, but it has revolutionized the way we look at data. The present study, a trial of creating and using data-base for engineering data analysis, has demonstrated the direction to be taken in the future in the field of engineering data-base management. A FORTRAN application through DML (Data Manipulation Language) is also carried out. The ease and versatility in using the data-base, as demonstrated by these advanced application techniques, suggests a proper direction to be taken hereafter in this field. The end-user support utility prepared by NEC and installed in ACOS-6/SYSTEM 1000 called INQ (Information Query), is used. Details of INQ for data-base operations are explained here and demonstrated with examples, of which source data in this case, is the Transactions of JWRI.
