Uses cases illustrate how various data types fit into the ODM structure. Some examples are available in the ODM Design Specifications documentation at
Additional use cases are listed below.
ODM Use CasesAuto Sampler
This doc describes the ODM procedures for handling autosampler data collection for the case when an autosampler collects samples sporadically and telemeters this information into a database. Then when the sample carousel is full, a technician retrieves the samples for lab analysis. The DataValues table records the datetime and identifying information for each sample, so that associated quantities determined from the lab samples at a later date can be entered.
