Abstract:

LOCATE is a software tool for analyzing the effects of workspace layout on the quality of information exchange between humans and humans, and humans and machines Hendy, 1984, 1989. LOCATE was developed in C code on the Macintosh computer using the platform independent graphic user interface tools provided by the Smart Elements software environment. Although a Smart Elements development environment is said to be platform independent PIGUI, the interface software must be ported to the machine and operating system on which it is to run. Unlike non-PIGUI developments, which may take up to two-thirds of the original development time to complete, this port is relatively straightforward. The development has reached a point of maturity where DCIEM wishes to give a variety of users access to LOCATE. This is particularly so for users within DND design Directorates and researchers in the TTCP and NATO nations. To support this interchange of software, LOCATE must be ported to the PC environment that is prevalent in these domains.
