Abstract:

The existing volume and increasing growth rate of documented information has resulted in numerous efforts to construct operational document storage and retrieval systems, as a practical solution to the demand for information storage and retrieval. Accompanying the surge to build more and better and bigger Document Retrieval Systems DRSs, was the realization that there are few effective tools for the designers and managers of these systems. The tasks of design and management of DRSs requires tools and performance measures to aid in the selection of preferred options, and in the control over the fundamental processes of inquiry analysis, indexing, retrieval and system growth. A step toward the generation of operational tools to aid in the design and management tasks is presented. Modified author abstract
