Abstract

Electronic product catalogues (EPC) as a valueadded service for presenting, explaining, and selecting products are becoming more and more important. Especially systems combining multimedia and knowledge-based techniques seem to be appropriate to meet different requirements. This article describes an EPC developed by practitioners of Olivetti/TA Triumph-Adler and scientists of the Bavarian Research Center of Knowledge-Based Systems (FORWISS). The system contains the companies’ new range of portable computers and integrates hypermedia techniques with an object-oriented product data base. Based on experiences that have been made building this catalogue a dedicated construction set has been developed.
