By M.G. Helander, T.K. Landauer, P.V. Prabhu

This thoroughly revised version, of the Handbook of Human-Computer Interaction, of which eighty% of the content material is new, displays the advancements within the box because the booklet of the 1st version in 1988. The guide is anxious with rules for layout of the Human-Computer Interface, and has either educational and sensible reasons. it's meant to summarize the learn and supply options for the way the data can be utilized by means of designers of desktops. the amount can also be used as a reference for educating and examine. execs who're interested by layout of HCI will locate this quantity essential, together with: laptop scientists, cognitive scientists, experimental psychologists, human elements execs, interface designers, platforms engineers, managers and managers operating with platforms improvement. a lot of the knowledge within the instruction manual can also be generalized to use to components open air the normal box of HCI.

Bad News It appears that, despite the enormous gains in hardware power and software versatility, and the widely held belief that computers are very effective productivity tools for business and related applications, the efficiency with which everyday humans perform everyday tasks has not been greatly improved by computer aids. On the contrary, the evidence is that, on average, the effects of computer aids on worker efficiency and economic productivity is relatively slight. A detailed review of a wide spectrum of data that converge on this conclusion has been provided by Landauer (1995, pp.

Another reason for doing HCI research is to increase our understanding of the technology and its effects, to discover what impact computers (or uses of computers) are having on people's productivity, job satisfaction, communication with other people, and the general quality of their lives. Another is to increase our abilitymalthough this will always be limited--to anticipate, and steer, future developments and effects. We think another important reason for studying HCI is to have some influence not just on the continuing development of the technologymto increase its usefulness and usability--but also, and perhaps more importantly, to help increase the chances that it will be put to uses that are constructive and humane.

Many more drafts of a document are likely to be produced with word processing resources than without them, and much more paper is likely to be printed, but evidence of greater quality or markedly quicker end-toend throughput is missing. , Card, Robert and Keenan, 1984; Gould, 1981 ; Vacc, 1991). The box score slightly favors paper and pencil for quality, and shows mixed results for time efficiency depending on user skill and the type of application. --to highly paid professionals with lower document preparation skills who would otherwise be more productively employed.
