Abstract: Office automation is gradually making headway in various organizations. Local Area Network (LAN) with different protocols in accordance with the Open System Interconnect (OSI) of the International Standards Organization (ISO) is suggested for the purpose. A layered structure for the application layer, i.e. the 7th layer of the ISO-OSI is suggested for a research laboratory. The research projects are considered as central layer with two preceding layers as input; the first one dedicated to the administrative support and second to the technical support. Utilization of the research results is assigned the 4th layer as an output layer. It is suggested that a number of computers may be placed in each layer for creating distributed databases and a master computer for the master database. An automatic dataflow system is suggested for smooth flow of data among various layers or various activities within a layer. Advantages of the proposed system are also described.
