Abstract

One of the most important problems in developing an office information system is that each office environment has its own peculiar requirements for managing its task. Often, the knowledge about the task is not fully documented but is accumulated in the office worker’s mind Hence, one of the most effective solutions to developing and maintaining office information systems is that the office worker be provided with tools for programming his work by himself.
