Abstract:

The study was undertaken to develop an integrated and systemic approach to the management and handling of technical data and information generated during Air Force in-house test and evaluation projects and programs. The organization and system proposed uses a team made up of a technical editor, technical illustrator, and an editorial typist. Models show how this team can be integrated with the IBM Magnetic Tape Selectric Typewriter MTST system to more efficiently and economically handle and manage technical data and information through the use of a central-data-banking technique and the machines ability to rapidly update and reproduce several different type fonts and textual formats either as clean draft copy or camera-ready copy. The critical path method is used to identify project or program uncertainties, potential slippages and their portable impact, routines requiring action and decisions, and areas of routines where tradeoffs may be made to aid in meeting schedule dates. The proposed system has the potential of saving 64 cents for every page keyboarded for inclusion in test plans, technical letters, progress reports, and final technical reports. Author
