ATOS will get more focus because the report recommends a time and motion study of its frontline inspection operations to determine the time demands of ATOS (and the other IT programs). FAA management should finally realize that the time demands of all these data collection programs do not give the frontline inspectors much time for anything else.
It does not seem possible for field inspectors to collect, collate, and analyze all the data that is collected (much less their managers). It is becoming more apparent that the field inspectors do not have the time to do all the work. The time and motion study should show this. It seems to me to be a no brainer!
