Abstract:

This thesis proposes a Report Originating System to provide afloat and small commands with the capability of automatic data processing assistance in report generation. The discussed system is completely implementable in small, inexpensive general purpose microcomputer hardware. The principal benefit of the system lies in its ability to prompt the user to solicit the information required to be submitted in the report and to partially analyze the users responses for correctness of form and content. Such computerized assistance should result in higher report quality and the concomitant reduction of correcting message traffic. The Report Originating System incorporates a line editing capability which lends itself to any text editing process. Thus, frequently modified locally prepared documents such as unit instructions and directives can be originated and updated with this system. Author
