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.

McMahan, Christopher B. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1994-12);All simulations require some type of user interface to be functional. The problem is that this interface is sometimes written as a tightly coupled part of the simulation itself, buried in the main body of code. This makes ...
