THE FRAMEWORK OF THE EXISTING TRAFFIC RECORDS SYSTEM FOR THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA IS DESCRIBED AND PRELIMINARY ANALYSES ARE PERFORMED. THIS DESCRIPTION IS IS AN OVERVIEW OF THE PRESENT SYSTEM AND CONSTITUTES THE BASIS FOR A DETAILED ANALYSIS OF THE SYSTEM USER REQUIREMENTS TO BE MADE OUTSIDE THE SCOPE OF THIS EFFORT. THE ANALYSES PERFORMED IN THIS STUDY ARE LIMITED IN DETAIL, BUT THEY FORM THE BASIS FOR AN EVALUATION OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR FUTURE WORK. THE OPERATIONS ANALYSIS IS PERFOMED TO DEFINE AN OPERATIONAL CONFIGURATION FOR THE STATE'S TRAFFIC RECORDS SYSTEM AND DESCRIBE DECISION AND ACTION NETWORKS AS THEY NOW EXIST WITHIN THE SYSTEM AND SUBSYSTEM. THE DESCRIPTION OF SUCH A NETWORK FOR THE MAJOR ELEMENTS OF THE SYSTEM PROVIDES A REPRESENTATION OF THE OPERATIONAL FLOW AND DECISION CONTROL POINTS. IT ALSO INDICATES THE INFORMATION THAT IS REQUIRED AT EACH DECISION POINT. THE FORMS AND DOCUMENTS WHICH ARE RECEIVED, PROCESSED, AND PRODUCED IN THE COURSE OF SYSTEM OPERATION HAVE BEEN COLLECTED AND CATEGORIZED. THE FUNCTIONAL OPERATING PROCEDURES, IN TERMS OF THE TASKS TO BE ACCOMPLISHED, THE NUMBER OF VEHICLE RECORDS, DRIVERS' RECORDS, AND ACCIDENT REPORTS HANDLED, THE RATE OF PROCESSING, AND THE TIME INVOLVED ARE DEFINED. THE REQUIREMENTS FOR INFORMATION FLOW AND ACCESS HAVE BEEN ANALYZED. INFORMATION WHICH IS GENERATED AND THE PROCEDURES INVOLVED IN DATA PRODUCTION AND PROCESSING ARE IDENTIFIED.
