Record keeping has always been an essential component of science and engineering, but it has become even more so recently. As computers get faster, we perform increasingly complex computations and as storage gets cheaper, we accumulate larger volumes of data. The complete process, from data acquisition through analysis, is inherently exploratory: users experiment with different simulation models, parameters, and data mining and visualization techniques. But when they find an interesting result, it can be hard to remember which of the many trial-and-error paths produced a particular result without a detailed record.
