STREAM: A method to facilitate efficient data Exchange and Archiving

The results of physical experiments are complex and valuable. To facilitate efficient exchange and archiving of test results STREAM has been developed. STREAM means Standardized Test Results Exchange and Archiving Method. A formal distinction is made between the description of the information and the data itself. Standardizing the format of the description file for a given type of test-the so-called Testdefinition-instead of the data files themselves, permits the utilization of generic software tools and data formats for documentation, reporting and data storage. The formal breakdown of a test into five phases-the so-called SMARF phases-has several benefits: (i) testing activities are structured, (ii) it simplifies the process of documentation, and (iii) it facilitates a structured data handling process. These complete, consistent, fully-checked and quality-assured files may be easily utilized by personnel who were not directly involved in the conduct of the tests.

Abstract

The results of physical experiments are complex and valuable. To facilitate efficient exchange and archiving of test results STREAM has been developed. STREAM means Standardized Test Results Exchange and Archiving Method. A formal distinction is made between the description of the information and the data itself. Standardizing the format of the description file for a given type of test-the so-called Testdefinition-instead of the data files themselves, permits the utilization of generic software tools and data formats for documentation, reporting and data storage. The formal breakdown of a test into five phases-the so-called SMARF phases-has several benefits: (i) testing activities are structured, (ii) it simplifies the process of documentation, and (iii) it facilitates a structured data handling process. These complete, consistent, fully-checked and quality-assured files may be easily utilized by personnel who were not directly involved in the conduct of the tests.
