Abstract : Data Acceptance (DA) is the means by which a user officially accepts or rejects engineering data purchased from a contractor, based on the quality of the data. Data Acceptance by the military services for the acquisition and logistic support of weapon systems is a high priority within the Department of Defense (DoD). The Computer-aided Acquisition and Logistic Support (CALS) initiative, introduced in 1985, has further emphasized this priority since data must be delivered electronically, in a digital format, to decrease the cost of acquisition and logistic support while maintaining high quality. Skilled engineering data repository personnel, trained to accept data in a microform format, such as aperture cards, must now transfer their expertise to the acceptance of digital data. Data Acceptance is presently accomplished by viewing images displayed on high resolution image workstations, making this task labor intensive and error prone. The time consuming nature of visual inspection adversely impacts the repository mission of data storage and distribution. There is a need to automate the acceptance of digital data to improve its productivity. This will reduce the repository staif labor required, thereby reducing the cost of Data Acceptance while maintaining a high quality of data stored in the repository.
