Since the Database of Industry Standards of the Republic of Kazakhstan only
stores information, it does not have an integrated user interface. To use the
Database, the User Software must be installed at the usersí workstations.
The User Software is the tool that you use to search for and retrieve
information from the Database of Industry Standards of the Republic of
Kazakhstan. It is simple and easy to use. Its design incorporates standard
Windows elements that do not require extensive training to use. A user can start
the program and immediately proceed to search for information and use the texts
of the documents.
The primary function of the User Software is to provide you with simple and
effective tools for searching for regulatory information in the Database. You
can choose the search method that gives you the quickest route to the
information you want.
The search by terms enables you to enter search criteria in an on-screen
form, after which the program will search for the terms in the Database and
display a list of the documents meeting the search criteria you chose. This type
of search makes it possible to find documents according to indexes, numbers and
titles, as well as using the tables of contents and full texts. In addition, you
can refine your search by specifying the status of documents and the revisions
and amendments to documents within specified time periods.
The search method using the list of documents uses a classifier tree
consisting of a system of multi-level folders. The folders are used to access
the lists of documents in the Database. Each folder contains documents on a
specific subject, including such industries and spheres as fire safety, the
environment, health safety, industrial safety, product certification, quality
control, construction, communications, transportation, energy, oil and gas, and
Document Bibliographic Information
The User Software enables you to view the bibliographic information on
documents. This bibliographic information is displayed in the form of a report
indicating the status of the document, the date it was enacted, the names of the
developers, the name of the entity that issued the document, the number and
title of the document replaced, and information on revisions to this document.
Using the User Software, you can view the texts of documents in the database,
search through the text of an open document, and print text as you wish.
Using the Software
You control the functions of the User Software using commands from the
command menu. The User Software also has a graphic toolbar for the most
frequently-used commands. For users who are accustomed to only using the
keyboard (without using the mouse and control buttons), the User Software
enables you to control the command menu from the keyboard. In this case, the
toolbar will be closed, giving you more on-screen room. You can choose some
commands in the command menu using hot keys to work faster.
Toggling Between Languages
You can switch the interface language from Russian to English and back and
search for information and view the list of documents in either language. The
full texts are displayed in the original language.
You can choose the settings you prefer for individual components of the
software. For example, you can enlarge the font for easier viewing. The User
Software enables you to set the filters and view modes and sort the list of
documents displayed on screen as a result of your search. The database includes
canceled documents in addition to documents in force if you need them (for
example, to rehabilitate or modernize facilities constructed using codes that
are no longer in use). Icons with different colors are used to denote the status
of documents. If you wish, you can include only documents in force, only
canceled documents, or both in the list of documents.
The software includes on-screen help so that you can quickly find information
on how to use various functions of the software. The software includes Userís
Guides in Russian and English.

functional capabilities and user interface of the software.
