System of Automated Checking of Textual Document Design Rules

Zhigalova Maria, Sukhov Alexander.

The majority of text documents are made out according to predetermined rules, which regulate requirements to design of the given class of documents. However, the process of paper checking is quite time-consuming and requires from performer of high concentration and appropriate qualification. The paper presents the main methods that minimize the effort required to control the text on the absence of design errors; the analysis of software solutions is given, illustrating the principle of operation of these methods. To automate the verification of formal correctness of the text document the system designed for the compliance assessment of documents in accordance with the parameters set by the user was developed. The domain analysis is carried out, the domain conceptual model is given. The functionality of the system was described and the tools used in its development were presented. However, the verification of a text document is not reduced only to analysis of rules of its design. Also it is required to fulfill verification of document structure: presence of the required sections. The visual domain-specific language, which allows to describe structure of documents, and also connections between different documents, is designed for this purpose. The language has a simple graphical notation, therefore it can be used by as IT-specialists and clients who are not professional programmers. In practice, the developed system can be used to verify compliance with the formal requirements of projects and dissertations, scientific publications, technical documents, etc.
