Abstract:

The U.S. Army Institute for Research and Management Information and Computer Sciences AIRMICS has conducted research in the area of human factors and the man-machine interface. As a result of this research, a pilot system for testing the adequacy of functional specifications has been developed. The concepts demonstrated in this pilot system received a favorable review by several elements within the U.S. Army Computer Systems Command USACSC. The tasks contained in the Statement of Work of the present contract have been designed to expand the concepts of the pilot system to create a tool for use by USACSC and the Army. The Computer Aided Specification Testing System CASTS is a tool for the design of interactive data entry systems. The CASTS project is concerned specifically with the development of this tool. The work is divided into two processes within the CASTS system The first process is that used by the designer to construct simulations of interactive video display terminal dialogue and the second process gathers the performance data of an actual user who runs the simulation designed in Process I of the system.
