This book is concerned with the development of human factors inputs to software design. The aim is to create products which match the requirements and characteristics of users and which offer usable user interfaces. The HUFIT project - Human Factors in Information Technology - was carried out within the European Strategic Programme for Research and Development in Information Technology (ESPRIT) with the objective of enhancing the quality of software design within the European Community. The variety of activities undertaken to achieve this goal are reflected in this book. It describes human factors knowledge and tools for integration in information technology supplier organisations.
