Abstract: Given the recent advances in computer system technology, gas measurement and chart offices are now excellent candidates for computer-based automation. These operations involve highly repetitive tasks which, traditionally, are good targets for automation. They also involve specialized gas calculations and extensive record-keeping, both of which require a computer. But above all, there is need for people to have control over the information they are collecting and interpreting each month - to have the information presented on their terms, both quickly and effectively. The comprehensive solution, however, does not lie with traditional office automation, but rather with technical office automation: a melding of data structuring and presentation with comprehensive, built-in support functions to address the specific requirements of the gas measurement operation.
