The Report Generator (RPG)
The Report Generator ("RPG") is a new program from SAFE
that automatically generates draft expert reports and declarations
for litigation. Reports have several generic sections such as an
expert's experience and descriptions of the technologies involved
in the examination, which can be shared amongst reports. By automating
the compilation of the generic information into a formatted and
structured draft report, the expert can focus on performing the
analysis and writing the case-specific arguments.
When using the RPG, an expert selects the type of case, type of
report, types of technologies involved, types of tools used, and
expert background profiles from a GUI. Then a Microsoft Word draft
report is generated that includes all of the selected generic information
intermixed with blank sections where case-specific information should
be filled in manually.
Currently, many experts either dig through their prior works to
find specific descriptions or write them from scratch each time.
Maintaining a library of generic report elements is a challenge,
especially when multiple experts are involved. RPG acts as a version
control system between multiple experts who can upload and download
detailed descriptions of experts, technologies, and tools from a
central server. The reports are generated according to specific
formats, so an entire team of experts can easily produce reports
that are consistently formatted with the most up-to-date descriptions.
RPG also keeps synced descriptions of CodeSuite, so it can include
the most up-to-date descriptions and pricing of the tools without
having to search the S.A.F.E. website or CodeSuite help files.
