Abstract:

This report discusses means of facilitating the entry of shipping data about cargo unloaded at the truck docks of MAC air cargo terminals. Use of a portable handheld keypaddisplay device for on-line entry to a computer would seem to promise improvements in data handling. Several off-line modes might also prove useful for this application, including digital recording, image capture by photography or video techniques, and use of a manual checksheet. A test program is recommended to determine which of these alternative data entry modes warrant further consideration. Author
