Abstract : Desmatics, Inc., under Contract No. F33600-82-C-0466, is conducting an evaluation of the Communications-Electronics (C-E) subsystem of VAMOSC, the Air Force Visibility and Management of Operating and Support Costs system. The C-E system collects and displays Operating and Support costs for items of ground communications-electronics, and meteorological equipment. This report documents the results of the second phase of a two-part study. The first part of the study investigated the quality of the data produced by the C-E system in FY83 and FY84. The second part of the study, discussed in this report, dealt with the development of parameters for use in designing automated screening procedures to monitor C-E system data quality. Although the system is currently processing data as intended, a number of recommended enhancements remain to be implemented. Because these enhancements will require substantial changes in the current system logic, automated monitoring of C-E output data is neither appropriate nor feasible at this time. Desmatics has, however, provided a discussion of monitoring techniques which can be implemented once the system becomes fully stabilized.
