Summary "There has long been a need for a book which deals specifically with human factors issues and methods, and which is targeted at the computer science and engineering population; this book fills that gap. Using a model that places people at the centre of the system design, users are considered in terms of their cognitive and physical attributes and their social needs. The way in which computer technology needs to be designed and evaluated in order to take account of all these factors is looked at in detail."--BOOK JACKET. "Students taking Human Computer Interaction, user-centred design, human factors, ergonomics and other similar courses will find this book invaluable."--BOOK JACKET
