The work reported here attempts to address Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) design problems by the creation of support for the conceptualization of such problems during evaluation. This support takes the form of a planning aid intended to aid novice human factors practitioners (recently qualified graduates, for example) to evaluate interactive worksystems. The planning aid provides a structure for relating and recruiting techniques used in Human Factors (HF) evaluations. It incorporates relevant information for planning an evaluation (e.g., evaluation methods themselves), and offers advice in the form of heuristics about the use of the methods, their selection, and configuration. The output of the planning aid is an evaluation plan. This paper reports the development of the planning aid, and illustrates its application with a case study. Two assessments of the planning aid with novice HF practitioners are also presented and discussed.

Whitefield, Andy, Esgate, Anthony, Denley, Ian and Byerley, Paul (1993): On Distinguishing Work Tasks and Enabling Tasks. In Interacting with Computers, 5 (3) pp. 333-347.
Which behaviours of an interactive work system perform the work that the system was designed to do? And what do the other behaviours do? The idea of distinguishing work tasks and enabling tasks is presented. Suggestions are made on how to distinguish them, based on a conception for human-computer interaction. Suggestions are also made as to how the ideas may be useful in the design of interactive work systems. The ideas are illustrated by the analysis of some actual user-computer interactions in the domain of text editing.

Denley, Ian, Whitefield, Andy, Byerley, Paul, Voigt, Ulla-Britt, Hermann, Sibylle and May, Jon (1992): Design Principles for Improving Service Integration for End-Users in Broadband Communication Systems. In: Monk, Andrew, Diaper, Dan and Harrison, Michael D. (eds.) Proceedings of the Seventh Conference of the British Computer Society Human Computer Interaction Specialist Group - People and Computers VII August 15-18, 1992, University of York, UK. pp. 307-322.
End-users of broadband communication systems will face ease of use problems in integrating the various services that will be provided. This paper discusses the development of principles for designers which it is claimed might contribute to solutions to these problems. The paper describes the advantages of these principles over similar extant Human Factors advice both with respect to their scope and their application by designers. A case study illustrates the use of the principles in the design of a prototype multimedia multiuser system.

Denley, Ian and Long, John (1990): Towards an Evaluation Planning Aid: A Feasibility Study in Modelling Evaluation Practice Using a Blackboard Framework. In: Diaper, Dan, Gilmore, David J., Cockton, Gilbert and Shackel, Brian (eds.) INTERACT 90 - 3rd IFIP International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction August 27-31, 1990, Cambridge, UK. pp. 407-413.
This paper assesses the feasibility of the blackboard architecture as an organisational schema with which to model evaluation practice, and to provide an initial input to the development of an evaluation planning aid for practitioners. The paper illustrates the potential of a blackboard framework as a structure for making explicit the classes of knowledge used by human factors practitioners in the evaluation of interactive human-computer systems. A number of case histories of evaluation practice are modeled in terms of the framework, and provide examples of its applicability. It is concluded that the blackboard architecture has potential as a structure with which to model evaluation practice.
