Abstract : As with all reports, one must provide a sense of direction and purpose to the reader. At this point, I will attempt to make it clear what the focus of this paper is and the desired outcomes. As a final project for the class Human-Machine Interface Systems, it is necessary that this paper relate to an aspect or aspects of this topic. The aspects which have interested me are the process by which an organization implements a human-machine interface and what factors need to be considered to insure that the interface meets the needs of its human users. This latter goal is composed of objectives such as acceptance of the interface by the computer users, providing an acceptable means of assisting the human in accomplishing his/her computer assisted task, and related interface characteristics which help support these other two objectives
