CONT. –

ON INFORMATION SYSTEMS ANALYSIS 2 –

2008 Cricket Diane C Phillips

TO FIX IT – (continued from earlier posting) –

  1. All raw data sets in their entirety need to be made available to any and all, each and every department simultaneously, concurrently with one another in the number sets and information sets as collected originally (unaltered in any way.)
  2. Any flow chart that expresses information routing which has one box at any point that contains raw data / the collection thereof / number and data sets generated from original collecting source ~~~}>>

—–> which has only one single path arrow or line leaving it —>

__ —>> is inherently wrong.

\/ \/ \/

because it means the information in its original form completely unaltered is only available to one agency, department, or working group and

thereafter,
has passed on into the system as something else.

for instance:

# of housing starts

collected by Dept. of Building & Trade

l l l

l l l

V V V

~ modified at point of origination by

Dept. of Building & Trade

—> before <—

~ going into the database resources of

Department of Commerce, Department of Energy, Department of Economic & Financial Growth, etc. and on and on . . .

* (who do not receive it at the same time – which means further alterations occur).

3. To some extent, “fudging” the numbers is also occurring with departments and across departments and agencies (and in industries out in the marketplace also.) Everyone wants to look good both to their superiors and supervisors, etc. as well as to the larger world. Bad numbers look bad and are believed to reflect bad performance, poor work, and / or express poor returns from “pet” projects and processes supported by the individual, the supervisory staff or the overall department and its directing administration.

—>”real data” is being altered intentionally and somewhat, subconsciously such that departmental and agency-wide methods, policies, directions, procedures and ideas will appear effective and given to positive returns –> when in fact, the actual returns, data and information(s) do not reflect this.

—-> for instance __> by prosecuting every tiny infraction unworthy of personal resources to fight, DA’s offices around the country can make it seem they have a 95% – 98% conviction rate against a high number of overall cases in their “caseloads”. The cases aren’t difficult, the matters hardly even considered criminal in any light, however it produces a “fudged” number set, that does reflect as they desire it.
