DATA ENTRY SOFTWARE Responsibility for choosing the appropriate software for data entry, data management, and statistical analysis is normally divided among the lead software engineer, the data manager, and the statistician. ) The project leader may need to step in to resolve conﬂicts. The lead software developer need not be a member of the programming team, but she must possess a general knowledge of both data entry and data management software and be able to prepare and maintain a ﬂow or Gant chart for the development process.
The size of the team will depend on the time lines that have been established. At least one member of the software design team should be from the testing group to ensure that quality is built in from the start. Test the Software Those who develop the software should be no more permitted to organize the ﬁnal testing stages than a starting quarterback would be permitted to call defensive signals. For just as American football today has one team for offense and a second team for defense, so too should you have one team for development and one for testing: the two tasks require quite different mind-sets.
Here is another reason for developing a detailed procedures manual. Begin now by documenting the efforts you will make through training and monitoring to ensure protocol adherence at each site. Other frequently observed blunders include absence of concealment of allocation in so-called blind trials, lack of justiﬁcation for nonblind trials, not using a treatment for the patients in the control group, inadequate information on statistical methods, not including sample size estimation, not establishing the rules to stop the trial beforehand, and omitting the presentation of a baseline comparison of groups.
