Since personal computers are currently being used by individuals who are not professional computer specialists, the need for a framework allowing quick and easy development of user-friendly software is necessary. One such framework is the concept of software integration. This concept is now reasonably popular and several software tools allowing for such integration are available on the market. Unfortunately, all of these tools are oriented towards office automation systems, word processing, telecommunications etc. No such tools are available for scientific users which would allow easy utilization of mathematical programming software, model building and analysis etc.

This paper presents the system DISO which can support dialogue solving mathematical programming problems. The system allows for the treatment of all mathematical programming modules in a uniform way, allowing easy interaction with the user utilizing various metaphors for data presentation and analysis of results as well as being open -- i.e. new mathematical programming modules can be easily linked to the system. The DISO system has been designed utilizing modern software engineering concepts, like hierarchical program structuring, object-oriented paradigm and abstract data types oriented interface.
