An automated technique for conducting a total system study

Abstract

In conjunction with a comprehensive analysis of the data processing at an Air Force Base, a system study technique was developed which utilized EAM equipment for recording and analyzing all primary data processing applications. The study effort also included the initial postulation of a total data processing system. The automated study technique facilitated systems analysis by: relating significant data, providing thorough analyses of existing systems, simplifying documentation correction, and automatically preparing flow charts. The study technique is completely independent of the data processing complex being analyzed, the organization involved, the mission it supports, and hardware considerations.
