About this book


This book describes a comprehensive method for designing human-computer interfaces which integrates with software engineering. The subject of HCI is covered from its background in psychology to the technology of multimedia and the methodology for design and quality assurance. In this thoroughly revised and updated second edition new material on interface components, multimedia, quality assurance and group work has been added. The book concludes with a case study that illustrates the author's discussion of method and architecture.
