Ctrl-Z Electronic Scouting System
by: jay.sridharan

A showcase of Team 4096’s 2016 scouting system, as well as a guide for others to build their own.

Over the years, Ctrl-Z has placed a strong emphasis on scouting within the team. As a result, through many years of evolution, we have arrived at our 2016 Scouting System. It is easy to use, fast and efficient at aggregating data, and dynamic enough to allow the team to generate new reports as needed. Through explaining in the inner workings of this system, this whitepaper hopes to serve as both a guide and as an inspiration to teams creating their own systems. It can also be viewed at www.team4096.org/resources/papers/scouting

Team 4096 would love to help other teams plan and execute their own scouting systems, whether it is like this one or not. Please feel free to contact me with any questions at scouting@team4096.org.
