Abstract:

This report documents the development and application of a computer based data validation tool for use by the Defense Contract Management Command DCMC. The model is based on Statistical Process Control SPC principles combined with Single Exponential Smoothing SES forecasting. Monthly data values that are statistically unusual compared to historical values are flagged for review and possible correction. This kind of model is necessary for the effective implementation of the unit cost based resourcing system. Inaccurate unit cost system data will result in inappropriate workload and resource assessments. This model should eventually be used to validate a much wider array of key management data at the DCMC, Secondary Level Field Activity SLFA and District levels.
