An electronic document automation system
serves the purpose of processing the documents over networks
in a paperless manner. Obviously, such a system is
significantly beneficial to our working efficiency. In the
present paper, 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 quea and management processes. We implemented
the proposed system on Windows NT platform in the
Multimedia Information NEtworking (MINE) Laboratory at
the Tamkang University.
