direct data entry


direct data entry
The process of recording accounting and other transactions directly onto a computer system from individual department terminals. For example, direct labour times spent on jobs or processes can be entered directly into the computer system through a terminal in the operating department. Usually the entry is subjected to tests and constraints to ensure that it complies with certain parameters and to ensure that the system is not corrupted by the inputs from a remote terminal.
