Human-Computer Interaction: Ergonomics and User Interfaces - Vol. 1

By Hans-Jörg Bullinger; Jürgen Ziegler | Go to book overview
An object may belong to several types. For instance, an object icon-button (called graphic keyin the CUA terminology) belongs both to the commandand choice of statetypes and therefore inherits attributes from those types.By structuring objects and rules it this typology allows:
to reduce the design deviation search time - all rules associated to types to which the object under evaluation does not belong are not explored;
the completeness and cohesion of the base to be improved by matching types to rules;
at implementation level the maintainability of the rule base to be increased, particularly by reducing the number of rules to be implemented - rules are only implemented once, at the highest possible level of abstraction of the typology, and are then inherited by lower level graphical objects.

As far as the development of the rule base is concerned, it is assisted by the typology which offers two entry points - graphical objects and ergonomic recommendations.
