A practical application of conventional software to a relational data base for a personal computer storing tribological characteristics data is described. Examples of the construction of a group of data tables, the relation between the tables, the method of retrieving the desired data from a group of tables, etc., are shown. All data must be divided into several compact tables, and be retrieved by relational operations between them, because there are too many items and too many records to store in one table, due to the limited memory capacity of a floppy disk. Engineers will be able to communicate with each other by interchanging the floppy disks.
