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

By Hans-Jörg Bullinger; Jürgen Ziegler | Go to book overview

techniques benefit from the model-based paradigm because the model provides an explicit declarative representation of the interface the tool can reason about. Balance between expressive power and ease of use is achieved by a) keeping limited the amount and complexity of model abstraction the developer has to deal with and b) mapping underlying model abstractions to visible presentation objects, reducing the mental transformation effort required from the developer between different representations of the interface.

Our work focuses on the visual part of interface design and does not currently address aspects related to the dialog with the end-user. Our plans for the near future include the extension of our work to a more comprehensive environment that incorporates user task modeling ( Contreras 1997).
