It needs to imply singularly or once

"I want to record essential data for audit purposes (somehow)"

Currently I record each bit in about 3 places for different people

RandomMess Sun 07-Aug-11 14:42:25

ermmmmmmmmmmmmmm

unilaterly?

sorry no dictionary to hand

MaryMotherOfCheeses Sun 07-Aug-11 14:43:31

in one central system?

StealthPolarBear Sun 07-Aug-11 14:46:19

somethign about definitively?
Uniquely

neither right...I know what you mean though

StealthPolarBear Sun 07-Aug-11 14:46:42

a single, accurate version

Ephiny Sun 07-Aug-11 14:48:16

centrally?

Milliways Sun 07-Aug-11 14:52:44

I want to create one central record of......... ??

KatyMac Sun 07-Aug-11 15:08:18

Each piece of data singularly/uniquely??

Discretely?

It's so complicated

KatyMac Sun 07-Aug-11 15:08:47

Will it be central?

CleanSheetsAndSmoothLegs Sun 07-Aug-11 15:10:29

Authoritatively?

KatyMac Sun 07-Aug-11 15:15:39

Not sure

to record essential discrete data for audit purposes??

I think the term you might be looking for is 'normalize'.

In database design, you try not to hold one piece of data in more than one place, as that carries the risk of the data being updated in one place but not the other, leading to errors ('orphaning'). So you structure it to store the data value once and once only. This is known as normalisation.

Oh

it's not an electronic database; would that make a difference?

& would my business based tutor know that?

KatyMac Sun 07-Aug-11 15:38:02

How about:

to record essential, discrete and relevant data; which is accessible and available for audit and management information

??

StealthPolarBear Sun 07-Aug-11 15:43:12

I wouldn't use normalised or discrete - how about non-duplicated?

KatyMac Sun 07-Aug-11 15:53:54

Maybe or unduplicated?

KatyMac Sun 07-Aug-11 15:55:27

Thesaurus doesn't like un or non duplicated

<sigh>

I feel a bit thick

KatyMac Sun 07-Aug-11 15:56:47

distinct?

StealthPolarBear Sun 07-Aug-11 15:57:34

the definitive version?
Non duplicated seems fine to me confused

KatyMac Sun 07-Aug-11 16:01:35

It needs to be the opposite or solution to:
"Duplicated, time-consuming paperwork for different audit purposes causing stress and anxiety amongst employees"

Twinkiesmum Sun 07-Aug-11 16:04:10

Non redundant?

StealthPolarBear Sun 07-Aug-11 16:08:12

A single, defined place?

KatyMac Sun 07-Aug-11 16:11:25

I'm over complicating this

WhereYouLeftIt Sun 07-Aug-11 16:37:29

to record all data required for audit and management purposes, in a single addressable location?

Thumbwitch Sun 07-Aug-11 16:44:56

Unified data recorded in one place that can be used for multiple audit purposes.
