Abstract:

This study primarily concerned with data input which is defined as the generation, collection, and transmittal of data to be entered into a computer for automatic processing. The study describes the several stages of data input, a few problem areas, and some of the techniques and recent equipment development useful for solving them. Certain basic principles that can be used as a basis for improving data input are 1 data-input specialists should be employed more widely 2 input error prevention, detection, and correction routines should be incorporated in data systems 3 data input problems should be considered when an electronic data processing system is designed and 4 the Air Force should plan, at this time, for the role that data input will play in automatic data processing systems in the 1965 to 1975 time period.
