    Over the last few years there has been a steady increase in the availability of tools to support the design and prototyping of user interfaces, unfortunately few of these are able to integrate fully with the rest of the design process. In the early 1980s the Alvey funded Eclipse project developed one of the first second generation integrated project support environments (IPSE) as an attempt to try... View full abstract»

    The Intelligent Simulation group within Sheffield University's Control Engineering department is involved in the production of mathematical modelling software to simulate physical systems. Specifically the group has developed a suite of PC-based programs called KEMS (knowledge-based environment for modelling and simulation). KEMS encompasses a wide range of different tasks within a single applicat... View full abstract»

    FormBuilder is an interactive design tool. It allows a designer-not a programmer-to create menus and forms of arbitrary size, style, and complexity. Because FormBuilder separates the task of GUI development and code development it enables a logical step forward-to include the function of form prototyping & testing. This means that a form can be created and used without any application code. Th... View full abstract»

  • Software tools to support logical and physical user interface design

    User interface design can be viewed as a two-stage process. Logical user interface design attempts to define the information flow across the human-computer boundary without defining the specific form of dialogue. At this stage user tasks and system functions are the focus of the design process. It can be argued that physical user interface design requires a prior concern with the tasks to be suppo...

    The authors describe an architecture for a user interface for an OODB which is general in nature, independent of variations in the details of an underlying object model, and capable of supporting a variety of user interface requirements. The prototype employs a default interface style based on hybrids of forms and control panels. Within this framework, a tool is built which allows users to declara... View full abstract»

    The paper describes the experiences of a design team gained through the software engineering of a graphical environment for computer aided control system design (CACSD). Although the team's work involves only the very particular domain area of control system design, it is hoped that the experience gained is applicable to most areas of computer aided design (CAD). The need for software support of u... View full abstract»

    Recently a human factors laboratory was constructed at the National Power Technology and Environmental Centre (NPTEC) at Leatherhead. This provides a controlled environment for experimental facilities where prototype displays can be rapidly implemented and evaluated. The core of NPTEC's experimental capability is a man-machine interface prototyping and evaluation facility. This comprises UNIX-base... View full abstract»

    In Touch is designed for the class of nondirect-manipulation graphical user interfaces, typical examples being in public access, touch-screen systems. The representation used is based on state-transition diagrams with the important enhancements of nested state hierarchies, event sharing and parallel states. These help to overcome the visual complexity encountered in state transition diagrams and h... View full abstract»

    Presents a view of a process for the usability-oriented development of software products from which are derived requirements for software tools to support the process. These requirements are expressed in terms of a framework specifically developed for implementation-independent specification of user interactions, the support required for these interactions, and the evaluation of corresponding user...
