Evaluation of a User Interface Developed for Industrial Applications
Wills, Gary B., Heath, Ian, Crowder, Richard M. and Hall, Wendy (1997) Evaluation of a User Interface Developed for Industrial Applications.
The user interface on factory floor computers is in most cases limited to a fixed page, non-window format. While this approach is acceptable for data entry, it can not be used for multimedia applications such as envisaged in current projects. As reported previously [1,2], we have demonstrated that the use of hypermedia in a factory floor environment is a viable solution to information dissemination. We noted however that the acceptance of the approach was dictated by the user interface design. As part of our current work, we have conducted a formal evaluation of the initial user interface developed for the Pirelli Cables, Aberdare application. The study was conducted using a discount usability method of evaluation. The results are summarised in this report and will provide guidelines for the development of user interfaces for industrial hypermedia applications. The report considers approaches to enhance the evaluation process, and concludes with a review of user interface requirements for industrial hypermedia applications.
