Producing Adequate Definitions

Producing Adequate Definitions

We know how important definitions are, yet we also know that definitions are often missing or of poor quality in data deliverables. Over the years I have used a number of techniques to ensure adequate definitions are present. For example, one technique is to write the attribute definition before naming the attribute. This not only guarantees you’ll have a definition, but you will also often come up with a better attribute name. What techniques do you use to produce adequate entity and attribute definitions?
