Abstract:

This effort consists of the analysis and design of a user interface which employs several man-machine relations factors an existing system will be employed as a testbed for these beliefs - the COINS II Terminal Access System TAS. This new interface must not interfere with the existing TAS user interface it must coexist with the original and both must be accessible to TAS users. In addition to the software effort, intelligent terminals i.e., microprocessor controlled will emulate an electronic desk environment for the user. We feel that such modifications will result in greatly increased user acceptance of TAS, while providing a good indication of how such considerations can be applied to other systems and the possible effects of such efforts.
