This collection of hypermedia resources was designed to replace their existing paper-based engineering standards and procedures.
  • Web-based Decision Support Systems: Developed and presented a framework for providing decision support through the web. This framework goes beyond the simple expansion of the network from a LAN to a WAN. It also incorporates the role of intelligent agents that collect important information which helps in supporting the decision making process.
