Abstract:

The Window Management System WINDOWS is designed to overcome certain limitations on computer decision aids which stem from the fact that the user of such aids is typically restricted to interacting with one computer program at a time. The decision maker has access to a variety of different sources of information, such as books, graphs, maps, and notes. WINDOWS makes it possible to divide a single computer terminal into multiple sub-terminals, thus enabling decision makers to interact with more than one computer process at a time from a single terminal. In addition, WINDOWS allows the decision maker to control all of the computer processes from a single keyboard. Author
