Research Institution
OpenDoc, the latest object technology standard for compound documents, is now available to build reusable, distributed, cross-platform software components. End users can tailor or customize their information into effective, efficient, and multi-media type documents. OpenDoc simplifies the workflow by allowing users to choose and combine application features as well as providing for seamless application integration. Angel Wings Technology proposes to demonstrate the OpenDoc with added view-sharing extensions is the natural solution for simultaneous multi-user sharing of compound documents containing multimedia types such as video. The combination of the existing innovation of the OpenDoc technology together with the added value which Angel Wings Technology plans to develop within this project yields an added benefit: the ability to measure and evaluate workflow. This ability comes from nonintrusive monitoring of sematic events ("silent members of the workgroup") providing a quantifiable data feed (sematic events/second). This measure can be applied to process improvement and other related disciplines such as security.
