Software Engineering for User Interfaces
March 1985 (vol. 11 no. 3)
pp. 252-258
S.W. Draper, Institute for Cognitive Science, University of California
The discipline of software engineering can be extended in a natural way to deal with the issues raised by a systematic approach to the design of human-machine interfaces. Two main points are made: that the user should be treated as part of the system being designed, and that projects should be organized to take account of the current (small) state of a priori knowledge about how to design interfaces.
Index Terms:
