The ideal image processing system would be one that people already know how to use. Its components would be interchangeable with other computers in the office and in the factory. It could be quickly programmed to do its job by nonprogrammers and non-typists. And it would communicate and print reports over the same network used by all the other computers in your company. Does this sound like science fiction? It's not. The image processing system in this scenario represents a trend toward standardization in the industry. Image processing suppliers are realizing that they must move away from their existing proprietary architectures and customized software systems in favor of standard computers having a wide base of support hardware and software, and a wider pool of knowledgeable users.
