SYS 323 - Human Machine Interface

This course introduces the fundamentals for the analysis, design and evaluation of human-centered systems. The goal is to promote productive interaction between people and the systems they use. For example, decision support systems can be designed to leverage the strengths of both humans and machines for control of semi-automated processes. Course topics include analysis of human-systems interaction, interface design, usability testing, experimental design, and human-centered lifecycle design. Topics also include a focus on human cognitive and sensory abilities as they impact total system design. The course is practitioner oriented and includes a semester-long group project. (Y)
