To zero in on process-related GIGO
pitfalls, we began by assuming that all materials, as initially received, are in acceptable, in-spec condition.
Some, like WRAP and SWAP, rely on "optimization" routines; others, like WastePlan and GIGO
, favor simulation techniques and are built around a series of spreadsheets.
basically reveals the flaw in the original argument by establishing the dependency between processing and data.
- Usual IT response to those who complain that a program didn't "do the right thing".
Otherwise, the result is the old technological nightmare, GIGO
(Garbage In, Garbage Out).
However, the old GIGO
concept (garbage in - garbage out) must not be forgotten.
The suddenly pervasive personal computer has familiarized many people with the fundamental law of computing: Garbage In, Garbage Out, or GIGO
Developing a GIGO
(Garbage In/Garbage Out) survey is a no-brainer.
Analysts of all stripes stress the GIGO
concept--Garbage In, Garbage Out.
