In the field of human research, particularly in operational environments, data collection techniques are difficult. Researchers often focus their efforts on the data analysis and overlook the shortcomings of their data collection and storage methodologies. In order to demonstrate effective data collection and storage methodology in a representative human research process, the process used by human fatigue and performance researchers at the Human Systems Integration Lab at Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) served as a Proof of Concept. Most recent studies conducted at NPS provided a model of the current process. The Knowledge Value Added (KVA) methodology was used as a tool of comparison of the current process to the reengineered process. Information technologies including wireless physiological monitoring devices, web-based and mobile device data collection methods, and integrated data storage techniques were incorporated in the reengineering effort. The data storage process included the design of a standard relational database format allowing research teams to easily access their data. This repository also enables data to be archived for future use (e.g., meta-analyses). To demonstrate the reengineered process in an operational environment, a field fatigue study was conducted at the Naval Officer Indoctrination School (OIS) in Newport, Rhode Island.
