The interactive display design tool (IDDT), an attempt to resolve some of the difficulties inherent to part-task simulation development, is described. IDDT is a set of applicational programs that function as an interface between a display/part-task designer and a graphics processing system. IDDT allows individuals with no knowledge of computers or programming to interactively create, edit, save, and view graphic displays. As displays are saved at the end of an editing session, directly compilable software source code is generated that can be inserted into part-task simulation software. To date, IDDT has been in use for a ten-month period, during which, it has been used to generate approximately 20 display formats for incorporation into a part-task simulation system. Initial indications have been that display design and programming time is reduced by 40%-60%
