Developing Recommendations for CAD User Interfaces Congress II: Design and Implementation of Interactive Systems: Standardization; Development of Standards
Proceedings of the Fourth InternationalConference on Human-Computer Interaction 1991 v.1 pp. 543-547
The reference model for CAD systems developed by the Gesellschaft fur Informatik (GI -- the German membership organization of IFIP) is a frame for classifying the functionality of CAD systems. Whereas the reference model regards the user interface as one of several modules of the CAD system, the user interface appears to the user as being the whole system. This is the reason why an additional task working group on CAD user interfaces has been established by the GI in order to develop recommendations for the design of CAD user interfaces. Proceeding and preliminary results of the working group are described.
