Operational Metrics Reporting Processes at Scientific User Facilities: Comparing a High-Energy X-ray Synchrotron Facility to a Supercomputing Facility
Professional Communication Conference (ProComm), 2017 IEEE International
This brief paper follows up on a question proposed at the end of a research paper by the authors published in the transactions of ProComm 2016 (Austin, TX) . Last year's paper reported on how an operational assessment review process at a federally-funded scientific supercomputing center transforms raw data about machine operations into reportable knowledge for audiences external to the facility, in particular the funder. This process was codified in a document-cycling model that accounted for writing activities beyond the conventionally modeled practices of composing and editing.
