Abstract : In order to facilitate the development of human-factored human-computer interfaces, a Dialogue Management System (DMS) is being created. Dialogue independence and internal and external dialogue have developed as underlying concepts of DMS, and are manifest in the separation of the dialogue components of a software system from the computational components. In a new system design role, a dialogue author is responsible for creating the dialogue which constitutes the human-computer interface of an application system. (Author)
