2015 AFS EM Symposium: Principles of Fishery Program Reporting Design – M. Brady

Published June 29, 2016

PDF: Principles of Fishery Reporting System Design_M. Brady

Abstract: Fishery reporting systems accept human input via multiple subsystems, where the subsystems are reporting on the same event, a fishing trip. Human data input presents challenges to the designer as a common source of error and excessive burdens on human reporters. Using multiple subsystems to report on the same event can result in redundancies, inconsistency, and trip matching errors. Furthermore, human data input and multiple reporting subsystems can interact in a way that propagates additional errors within the system. This presentation provides a set of design principles for managing human data input and design principles for proper integration of reporting subsystems. Reporting systems based on these principles are simpler, more efficient, and far more accurate.
