Abstract
The report describes the analysis of a possible computer-based system to manage the large number of extensive computer data files created during human physiological experiments. The analysis has been developed specifically to address the requirements of a particular laboratory, the Aerospace Group (ASG) at DCIEM, but is applicable to any experimental laboratory group collecting large amounts of physiological, engineering, or similar time series data. The report represents the first step in the design of a Physiological Signals Management System (PSMS). Following Systems Design methodology, a need in the research environment is analyzed, and a specific problem definition developed. A detailed consideration of the system components, including the human interface, then follows. Some recommendations about the structure of the system are made. A feasibility study and detailed technical design will be required before such a system could be implemented.
