MULTIDISCIPLINARY ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION REPORT AUTOMATION. VOLUME 3: MANUAL FOR SIMPLIFIED PROCEDURES FOR ANALYSIS OF DATA

The document is the third volume of a five volume report describing results of the Multidisciplinary Accident Investigation Report Automation contract. Access to data stored in the accident data banks at the Highway Safety Research Institute (HSRI) is considerably simplified through use of the SPAD (Simplified Procedures for Analysis of Data) system. This system allows users who have minimal knowledge in the operation of time-shared computer terminals to query the data banks for answers to many accident related questions. This manual provides the necessary background for operating the Michigan Terminal System from a remote terminal; for understanding the basic structure and contents of the accident files and analysis tools; and for using the SPAD system to obtain the desired analysis results.
