It's really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don't know what they want until you show it to them.

Environmental management requirements facing U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) facilities are detailed, complex, and often subject to rapid change. DOE's Office of Environmental Guidance, RCRA/CERCLA Division (EH-231), is responsible for developing and issuing guidance to assist DOE facilities in interpreting and complying with Federal, State, and local requirements. Recognizing the potential for computerization of the guidance, EH-231 requested that Pacific Northwest Laboratory (PNL) develop an approach for preparing automated guidance. The approach developed by PNL, termed "user-centered guidance," combines participatory design and traditional rapid prototyping techniques to produce a new form of environmental guidance that emphasizes the user's needs. This paper describes the objectives, processes and current status of this effort.

This presentation concentrates on knowledge acquisition and its application to the development of an expert module and a user interface for an Intelligent Tutoring System (ITS). The Systems Test and Operations Language (STOL) ITS is being developed to assist NASA control center personnel in learning a command and control language as it is used in mission operations rooms. The objective of the tutor is to impart knowledge and skills that will permit the trainee to solve command and control problems in the same way that the STOL expert solves those problems. The STOL ITS will achieve this objective by representing the solution space in such a way that the trainee can visualize the intermediate steps, and by having the expert module production rules parallel the STOL expert's knowledge structures. This approach has resulted in a knowledge acquisition process that places a great emphasis on both the domain expert's knowledge structures and solutions steps. Concept sorting tasks combined with scaling analysis techniques are being used for organizing and analyzing domain concepts. These techniques have been used to identify the critical STOL commands, the related concepts, and significant problems that will direct the design of the tutor's user interface as well as the production rules of the expert module.

IDEA is an automated system, running on an Apple Macintosh under HyperCard, which provides the HFE/MANPRINT analyst a high-productivity mean of applying HFE/MANPRINT early in the materiel acquisition process and throughout a system's life cycle. MANPRINT is an Army initiative directed toward assuring total system effectiveness by the full and complete integration of system personnel considerations and requirements in system acquisition.

Baker, Clifford, Eike, David R., Malone, Thomas B. and Peterson, Larry (1988): Update of DoD-HDBK-761: 'Human Engineering Guidelines for Management Information Systems'. In: Proceedings of the Human Factors Society 32nd Annual Meeting 1988. pp. 335-339.
DoD-HDBK-761 "Human Engineering Guidelines for Management Information Systems" was extensively updated and revised to reflect 1) significant changes in computing technology, including user interface techniques and display technology, and 2) recent user computer interface (UCI) design literature. The document was updated based on literature reviews, mail-out surveys of UCI designers and users, and interactive computer interviews (using question and answer dialog). The updated document contains two main sections. The first presents a general process for conducting UCI analysis, design, development, and evaluation activities. These activities include; conduct of system functions analysis, function allocation, user task analysis, user surveys, use of UCI prototypes, and product testing. The second section contains over 1000 human engineering guideline statements which can be applied to the detailed design of UCIs. The guideline section addresses dialog design, computer control, data entry and display, job performance aiding, expert systems interface design, and data communication and protection. This paper discusses the content and organization of the document.

This paper describes the state and status of human factors within the Space and Naval Warfare Command (SPAWAR) by focusing on a major effort currently being pursued within SPAWAR, that of developing a standard workstation design concept for Navy applications. Human factors concerns were paramount in the assessment of requirements for a standardized workstation applicable to Navy-wide requirements. The major human factors concern was display usability.

Roop, Elizabeth A., Eike, David R. and Heasly, Christopher C. (1987): User-Computer Interface Requirements for Remote Access Data Bases. In: Proceedings of the Human Factors Society 31st Annual Meeting 1987. pp. 973-977.
Remote Access Data Base (RADB) technology offers a variety of opportunities for rapidly acquiring and disseminating information. However, if the exchange of information is to be optimized, issues concerning the RADB user-computer interface (UCI) must be identified and addressed. For the purposes of this study, the major issues in the operation of RADBs focused primarily on the search and retrieval requirements of the remote user, who is unlikely to be willing to devote much time or effort to learn about the data base system. Many remote users will fall into the category of low sophistication with regard to details of the design and operation of the system. To resolve these issues, it is desirable to include features in the RADB UCI which will enhance the effectiveness and power of the search while minimizing the effort required to master use of the system. Differences in features related to the design and operation of the user-computer interfaces of the various RADB shells were identified from product literature. These differences were translated into questionnaire items designed to allow respondents to indicate the relative importance of each feature. The survey was organized into three areas: user access, search and retrieval protocols, and on-line help. Users ranging in experience from daily access to yearly access, were surveyed. The data were subjected to the appropriate statistical analyses. The preliminary results revealed that query procedures and search and retrieval protocols are of utmost importance to the users surveyed. Guidelines of RADB UCI design were developed from the results of both the surveys and literature reviews.
