Abstract

This article describes a driver which presents the end-user application tailoring questions interactively via a work station (terminal) and allows him to respond via the keyboard. This is related to the interactive application questionnaire driver for a manufacturing accounting and production information control system. QUESTIONNAIRE STRUCTURE The end-user uses the questionnaire program to tailor his business application environment and requirements. Potential questions fall into four major categories: selection of applications to be installed, application functional content, application and cross-application defaults, and the volume of information to be retained on the system (both transaction and permanent). The end-user is presented with questions and responds via the work station (terminal).
