<p><b>Abstract</b>—A fuzzy entity relationship diagram (ERD) data model for managing information about sets of related data files was converted to an object design. To do this, we developed new methods incorporating object model flattening, entity payload data containerization, and a nonintegrated object model design to allow expression of fuzziness.</p>
