Paper Abstract

Iterative user-interface development is an effective approach for developing a complex computer human interaction (CHI) system such as a radiology workstation. With an iterative design approach the toolsmith [Brooks 76] specifies a problem, produces a task analysis, develops a system design, and implements a prototype. This prototype is then evaluated using observations, verbal protocol, controlled subject experiments, and field studies, all with real users performing real tasks. The results of the evaluations are then used to modify and hopefully improves the problem specification, task analysis, system design, and implementation details.
