It is becoming obvious to more and more people that the tremendous advances in the computer industry in the past decades are heralding a revolution at least as profound as the industrial revolution. Hardware costs have plummeted and now, the major challenge facing the computer industry is making computers that are easy to learn and easy to use. The question is: how can we make computer systems with good human factors? While much is known about the physical aspects of human factors, relatively little is known about how to write software to maximize its usability. Given the current state of knowledge, it would be premature to claim that we even know "the" best way to study the problem of software human factors. In this book, therefore, a number of different approaches to various related problems are discussed.
