New Office Automation Environment: In-House Graphics and Publishing Capabilities

  • Alice Bernhard

Abstract

The development of In-House Graphics capability is becoming a key function of Business and Management and in some instances in-house publishing becomes a feasible complement or extension. Based on case studies, the author suggests an integration of Graphic Designer with Business and Management for efficient computerized visual communication.

To achieve cost-effective solutions for business graphics needs the computerized office effects changes. Adjustments in roles and responsibilities of Designer, Programmer and Business Professionals are necessary to fully utilize these new electronic tools. It is not uncommon, however, to take the new tools and try to continue to work in the previous or usual manner. Being wasteful of resources, both human and machine, is a reason why office Automation, in many instances, has not succeeded.
