In this article the properties of relational database management systems (DBMSs) are discussed. It is shown how they can be used as an effective tool for performing the function of primary‐key‐coding schemes for classifying product families in the application of group technology. The attributes of the relational DBMS are demonstrated and compared to traditional coding schemes.
