Human Computer Inter in Complex Sys,
Edition 1
Edited by James L. Atly and George Weir

Publication Date: 15 Apr 1991
This book presents an overview of human involvement with complex computing processes, discussing the nature of complex processes and highlighting the current state of complex interfaces. Moving from an analytical discussion, the book goes on to develop and suggest methodologies for human and complex computing design processes, encouraging the awareness of operators needs in systems design.
