We are concerned with the development of a workflow system for data quality assurance. The approach is based on the Oracle Warehouse Builder (OWB) in its latest available version. We motivate the data quality problem mainly companies are faced to, discuss some basics about data quality assurance of (mostly) non-metric data, and introduce our proposal for a workflow machine. We very shortly present some striking features, i.e. the architecture and data quality cycle of the Oracle Warehouse Builder having set the “Data Quality Option”. Next we report about our software DaRT , an acronym representing Data Quality Reporting Tool. We close with some remarks and perspectives for ongoing research.
