One of the important problems in the development of Decision Support Systems regards the issue of designing and implementation of man-machine interface. Importance of this component of the DSS follows from the fact that the end-user is usually not a computer specialist and, therefore, even the most useful decision-theoretic framework will be rejected if communication with the computer is too difficult for him. From the other side, design and implementation of user interface requires a lot of experience from the system designer, big resources for programming and a long time for for debugging and coding. Therefore, every attempt to simplify this aspect of DSS design and development is important.

In this paper the software package Field Manager is presented. This package allows easy and quick development of user interfaces. The design is based on two novel ideas in the field of software management -- the abstract data type approach and object-oriented software specification. The package has been applied in several practical applications and the collected experience has shown its effectiveness and simplicity.
