Data system analysis, design, and control are growing areas of importance as the Air Force increasingly employs electronic data precessors. This memorandum describes an automated data system analysis technique (AUTOSATE) that can be used as an aid in these three areas by providing information on data system flows and characteristics for the data system analysis phase and by furnishing a useful tool to guide system design and control. Included are all the operator instructions, program logic flow charts, and FORTRAN instruction listings for those interested in applying the techniques to data system surveys of both proposed and operational systems.
