Paper Abstract

Many parameters must be considered to obtain a display that is maximally useful to the human operator. Direct observation of a candidate display by the designer and survival in the marketplace provide some guidance, but whenever possible design decisions should be based on relevant test data. This paper summarizes the more critical design parameters, describes some of the available test data, and illustrates some of the characteristics of the test situation that determine whether a set of test results are relevant to a particular design problem. This discussion of test characteristics applies both to the evaluation of available test results and to the design of new test programs aimed at providing data relevant to display component subsystem or system design.
