Simulation models typically possess primitive user interfaces. Users must spend substantial amounts of time learning the model before they gain proficiency in using the model. A versatile, user-friendly interface reduces the time and frustration involved in learning a new system. This research effort designs a user-friendly interface for the System Dynamics Model of Software Management. The interface is written in a batch programming language, compatible with the IBM personal micro-computer. The interface is a product of the prototype design approach. A sophisticated batch language provides the self- generating menu structures, advanced string handling capabilities, and color enhancements.
