META-DATA VERSIONINGAdamski, Greg; L-3 Communications (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2007-10)Telemetry missions spanning multiple years of tests often require access to archived configuration data for replay and analysis purposes. The needs for versioning vary from simple file-naming conventions to advanced global database versioning based on the scale and complexity of the mission. This paper focuses on a flexible approach to allow access to current and past versions of multiple test article configurations. Specifically, this paper discusses the characteristics of a versioning system for user-friendly and feature-rich solutions. It analyzes the tradeoffs of various versioning options to meet the needs of a given mission and provides a simple framework for users to identify their versioning requirements and implementation.
