Abstract:

The paper describes the structure of the external communication facilities of a highly-interactive information system designed to assist a user in making non-trival decisions. The report also examines the usefulness of functional modularity and specification of canonical form interfaces as an aid in the comprehension of the interaction of the various modules of a complex system. The areas of external communication defined and examined are data collection, process management, report generation, and facilities management. Author
