Public Administration Office Systems Demonstrator

Objective

The PANDA project addressed the user needs of large and complex organisations such as public administrations. The objective was to build a demonstrator able to support the main activities carried out in public administration offices. The demonstrator was to address case-handling tools as well as tools for information flow control and circulation. The project aimed to integrate on a common platform the components available from these projects, taking the relevant standards into account.
The public administration office systems demonstrator (PANDA) project addressed the user needs of large and complex organizations such as public administrations. The objective was to build a demonstrator able to support the main activities carried out in public administration offices. The demonstrator was to address case handling tools as well as tools for information flow control and circulation. The project aimed to integrate on a common platform the components available from these projects, taking the relevant standards into account. The basic goals were to:
operate in an open heterogeneous environment, demonstrated through the particular configuration used by PANDA;
cope with specific organizational contexts, demonstrated through the use of folder migration specifications and the electronic organizational handbook with the PANDA demonstrations (further demonstrated through some ergonomic features which allow customization to national or local characteristics);
support electronic casework and flow, demonstrated through sequences of steps and activities organized into subdemonstrators.

PANDA was concerned with the building of integrated office systems including servers, communications facilites, dedicated devices and different kinds of workstations; particular emphasis will be devoted to problems of case processing, documents processing, filing and retrieval, and information exchange. The project attempted to address the overall information management problem, providing document handling and control facilities by means of user friendly graphics interfaces. The result of the project was a demonstrator able to support real life applications in office environments.
