Accurate Keying Workload Estimates via Recognition Only Mode

      Disclosed is a recognition-only operation for a high-volume
image recognition and keying operation to allow production
supervisors to obtain accurate recognition information for efficient
scheduling of operators with the right keying skill.

      A full production image recognition and keying application
requires knowledge about the expected keying workload volume so that
operators with the right keying skills can be scheduled.  This is
especially important because of the small window of time to complete
the work and the penalty when the work doesn't get completed in time.

      This operation added a recognition-only processing mode to the
application which doesn't require any keying operators.  It allows
units-of-work to be preprocessed through the image processor before
operators are available to key the items which failed the recognition
process.

      Recognition-only performs the recognition function for all
items in the unit-of-work and upon completion, enables the
unit-of-work for keying.  Recognition processing results are
available during and upon completion of recognition-only.  Since the
completed recognition-only unit-of-work has actual counts of
incomplete items and their keying requirements, supervisors can now
efficiently schedule the operators with the right skill mix.

      Recognition-only processing does require extra processing
resources since it requires two...
