Abstract:

In this paper, we describe our development of a Naval air warfare decision support interface called the Response Manager using rapid prototyping and Decision-Centered Design. Specifically, we took eight steps to ensure that our design would meet the needs of its intended users and possess a high degree of usability 1 recruit expert informants, 2 assemble a comprehensive set of possible features to be used in the design, 3 have experts evaluate and rank these features for development priority, 4 generate alternative display concepts for several higher ranked features, 5 have experts evaluate these alternative designs through interviews and surveys, 6 generate display designs that integrate the knowledge gained from the previous steps and incorporate human factors interface design guidelines, 7 have experts evaluate these display designs through interviews and surveys, and 8 repeat steps 4-7 as resources allow.
