Abstract:

The problems of perfecting forms of information its language have paramount significance for determining efficient methods of man-machine communication. As is well known, providing such communication with existing forms of information is quite expensive usually the savings obtained from decreasing the number of administrative personnel by using computer technology are exceeded several times by the increase in expenditures for the labor of programmers who translate natural language into machine language. Therefore, the problem of creating a single algorithmic language suitable for the peculiarities of economic information and disseminating it extensively is extremely important. No less essential are the problems of optimal coding. It is necessary to develop systems of classifiers for objects reflected in economic information products, producers, technological methods of production, branches of industry. Without such classifiers which allow optimal coding for all necessary objects, one cannot speak of a unified and efficient information system. The creation of a unified system of economic measures and of methods for determining scientifically the precision of information is also extremely important.
