Demonstrationssystem av nya dialogelement för informationssystem i arbetslivet
A demonstration system for new human-computer interaction elements.
Report no. 28, CMD, Uppsala University, 1991.
With the increasing use of computerized information systems in working
life, and the fact that the user and user interface developer in most
situations shows to be different persons, the need for "user friendly"
information systems - that is, computer systems that are based on the users
knowledge and abilities - is an important issue that needs to be
investigated further. The technical development is so rapid that computers
with graphical user interfaces, earlier only used in advanced technical
systems, now can be used also for administrative work. The method for the
design of the user interface has to be adapted to the specific working
situation. Within a research project at CMD a preliminary method for the
design of new human-computer interaction elements has been developed. A
demonstration system, to show the 'look and feel' of some of these
interaction elements, has been developed within this work. The
implementation was made on a Macintosh IIfx, with the help of the programme
