Abstract:

A method for deriving display requirements from a structure of information-processing sequences in human decision-making behavior is developed and applied. The logic of the methodological development is that a good display field must support the performance requirements of the intended users decision making is a crucial performance requirement of personnel in command control systems and since human decision making is an information-processing activity, a good display is one which facilitates performance of information-processing tasks in decision making. Three objectives are stated as a partial definition of a display field which would facilitate information-processing performance in decision making. 1 Display field content should be output rather than input oriented. 2 Display field format should organize content by functional categories rather than referent categories. 3 Display field format and content should be flexible, i.e. capable of manipulation by the users.
