Abstract
More people than ever before are using computers. Some use only the home computer while others use large mainframes or both. All computers have an interface with which the person must interact to operate the system correctly. This interface must be designed so that the operator can use the system without wasting time and money. This thesis describes some of the issues which should be considered when designing a man-machine interface, and defines I some types of operators and their environments. The issues and their resolution are illustrated by a case study which describes the man-machine interface of an actual United States Navy system in use today.
