||Determining general 'document' properties|
|Detailed description|| Large scale migration tasks require automated quality assurance to ensure migration was successful, e.g. PDF to PDF/A, or DOC to PDF/A migration. Quality Assurance could be performed by comparing relevant properties from the before and after documents, to ensure these are unchanged. Appropriate properties need to be identified for such comparisons, probably on a "per format" basis. Such properties should be quantifiable, although obvious candidates may not always be suitable, e.g. word counts may differ due to migration tools adding headers/footers (indicating file is a migration, copyright statement, etc.)
