This paper attempts to place some perspective on the research and developments going on in office automation. It describes the functions which can be assisted by computers, and indicates where more

User interface design issues for a large interactive system

Issues discussed include command language syntax, command recognition and completion, subsystem organization, user extension capabilities, user options, and various forms of prompting, help and feedback for a large interactive system.

NetBook - a Data Model to Support Knowledge Exploration

This paper discusses an alternative approach: a system whose knowledge is in the form of text fragments plus a query language to help users access appropriate fragments to support knowledge exploration.

Conceptual Approaches to Electronic Office Systems

It is important to understand the main types of frameworks which are currently in use so that the implementor can adopt or synthesize an appropriate approach for his/her organization.




The processes and techniques developed offer a promising beginning to computer-aided programming design extending from initial specification to final debugging in a unified design record that grows and evolves to complete final documentation.
