CAIA to Automate Data Analyses
As the number of Responsible Care® Awards increases and data analyses become more quantitative and complex, with more indicators to be considered, the automation of data analyses for the purposes of aggregate annual reporting, short-listing for Awards purposes, sub-sector benchmarking, the identification of focus areas for members as well as the Association; becomes more important. CAIA will be automating these processes during 2018 as far as possible using a rules-based system.
Despite the planned automation, data and results will be checked manually – as is the case already that includes manual and automated data reviews during the submission of data to the Association. An added benefit of the automation is that it is expected that data inconsistencies can be identified earlier in the submission period, leading to an even higher certainty of data quality than that which already exists.
