There is an old English folk saying that goes, "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen." I have a different approach: Do something about the heat. The folk saying would have us accept the poor designs of the world. Why? After all, if people were responsible for the "heat" in the first place, then people should be able to do something about it. Is the kitchen too hot? Redesign it.

Hus°y, Kristoffer and Enkerud, Torgeir (2010): HawkEye: a novel process automation interface. In: Proceedings of the Sixth Nordic Conference on Human-Computer Interaction 2010. pp. 831-832.

Operators in the automation industries today have difficulties in maintaining their situation awareness and understanding the impact of events. Massive amounts of data must be perceived and made sense of in a short amount of time, and maintaining overview is difficult while digging deep into the details when solving problems. The HawkEye prototype described here seeks to overcome these problems by providing a zoomable interface with animated movement and information aggregation. The intentions are that the information layout with zooming can provide a better sense of context, the animated movement can support continuous learning and the information aggregation can help operators make sense of the events and their implications as they occur.

Breen, Siri, Enkerud, Torgeir and Husoy, Kristoffer (2006): Applying usability engineering in ABB. In: Proceedings of the Fourth Nordic Conference on Human-Computer Interaction 2006. pp. 491-492.

This paper reports experiences from applying simple and flexible usability engineering methods to projects in a large multinational organization. The field of industrial control has traditionally been resistant to employing usability methods due to perceived complexity, difficulties in applying to the wide diversity of project types and low reward. In such an environment, it is difficult to perform thorough, state-of-the-art usability engineering methodologies, as the deadlines, requirements and demands of the development projects are too rigid. As an alternative, this paper presents how a simple and flexible usability engineering model that does not require much effort or cost has been applied to three fundamentally different projects and has proven to yield positive results.
