Abstract : From 16 January through 16 April 1984, the US Army Tropic Test Center conducted an investigation to develop a computerized system for tracking the flow of data from the field to the Data Analysis Laboratory during active testing. Data flow events were defined and interfaced successfully with the appropriate computerized Test Status Information Program test planning and reporting events. A computerized calendar from the Statistical Analysis System Institute was used to develop a data flow plan which schedules data hand-off events from the field to the Data Analysis Laboratory to ensure sufficient lead time for timely data reduction and analysis. This lead time permits data validation during the test execution phase and provides reduced data to subtest authors for timely completion of final test reports.
