An electronic document automation system serves the purpose of processing documents over networks in a paperless manner. Obviously, such a system is significantly beneficial to our working efficiency. We design and implement a multimedia document automation system. We make use of HyperText Markup Language (HTML) to construct the multimedia document formats. We also design a Web based document management system and a workflow control scheme to facilitate query and management processes. We implemented the proposed system on the Windows NT platform in the Multimedia Information NEtworking (MINE) Laboratory at Tamkang University
