  • PaaST (1.0) 2017 (†860 p. 53): Comparing PreservationManagementData to DigitalComponents and Realizations tests whether the data accurately and adequately describes a DigitalComponent or one of its Realizations. Comparison may show either consistency or some discrepancy. A discrepancy is a situation where data values that should be identical are not; or data values that should be consistent are not; or data do not correspond to the things they describe. Any data discrepancy is flagged as a preservation problem. (†2560)
