CSCW requirements and evaluation by D Diaper( Book )

14 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and German and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research in Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) has been progressing in academia for some time, feeding directly into the development of commercially-available groupware systems. At first limited to email and shared databases running on local area networks, recent advances in groupware technology have led to the development of sophisticated applications aimed specifically at the commercial user, ranging from workflow management systems to video conferencing. Now, as the availability of affordable systems is growing, so is the need for users and organisations to determine their requirements for future systems, and to evaluate how well available systems meet their needs. CSCW Requirements and Evaluation covers these and other important issues, providing both practical and academic perspectives on requirements and evaluation. It describes a variety of methods and approaches, based on specific case studies, and includes contributions from leading authorities in the field. Overall this volume provides invaluable reading for researchers and practitioners involved in CSCW, groupware development, information systems design, user-interface design, and organisational research
People and computers XII : proceedings of HCI '97 by Harold Thimbleby( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The discipline of Human-Computer Interaction has a key role to play in the convergence of computing, information and communications and those working in this field constantly face new challenges as new technologies emerge, adapt and change. HCI7 is the premier European Human-Computer Interaction forum, held in 1997 at the University of the West of England, Bristol. The conference is a major international forum for the people-oriented disciplines of human factors, psychology, ergonomics, sociology and organisational theory, the computer-oriented disciplines of software engineering, systems analysis and project management, and increasingly the arts, graphic design, interactive media and the Internet, and annually brings together researchers and practitioners from both industry and the academic community who are working to improve the effectiveness of the computer as a tool and creative medium
Cscw requirements and evaluation by Peter J Thomas( )

2 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a rapidly-growing commercial awareness of the need for evaluation in CSCW as major producers push to get cooperative technology taken up in commercial organisations. CSCW Requirements and Evaluation looks at ways of evaluating how well computer systems meet the requirements of organisations and their workforces, and establishing how effective, efficient and satisfactory they are for the actual users. It provides an integrated framework for assessment which reflects both practical and academic perspectives. Descriptions of various methods are given, along with examples of their commercial application and specific case studies. Containing contributions from leading authorities in the field, this book will be welcomed by scientists and practitioners involved in organisational research, CSCW, information and business systems, and HCI

Knowledge-based image processing systems by Deryn Graham( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Knowledge-based (or expert systems) and image processing have been applied to many domains but, although both fields frequently address common application areas, they are rarely applied together. Often a combined knowledge-based system and image processing approach can be highly appropriate and this book provides an insight into both areas and show students how a judicious mix of the two can result in a more effective system. The authors include detailed case studies to illustrate the two approaches as well as worked examples and solutions to problems throughout the text. Third and fourth year undergraduates and MSc students with some computer science background will find this book invaluable. Postgraduates and researchers looking for an introduction to either area - or ways to combine the two - will also welcome this clearly written and comprehensive text

Correct systems : building a business process solution by W. M. L Holcombe( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Correct Systems: Building a Business Process Solution provides a novel approach to the construction of a system which will provide the user with the desired solution, while at the same time providing a rigorous framework to ensure that the system can be examined mathematically and the implementation tested for compliance with its specification. The first part of this book provides a simple introduction to the method together with a complete, real case study. The second part describes, in detail, the mathematical theory behind the methods and the claims made
The ergonomics of computer pointing devices by Sarah A Douglas( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an in-depth coverage of the ergonomics of computer pointing devices using psychomotor models to analyse human performance, and experimental data for evaluation. The full spectrum of pointing devices are discussed including mice, joysticks and trackballs. Human motor performance and its effect on the design of pointing devices is comprehensively covered with issues such as vision, touch, cognition and limb control addressed. A chapter is devoted to design and includes discussion of task-device compatibility, range of motion, adaptive software control and device operation, and user interface semantics. The final chapter, as well as addressing International standards (including ISO 9247 and the American National Standards Institute) also looks at future issues in the development of pointing devices including pointing and speech, distributed environments and virtual reality. Sarah Douglas and Anant Mithal have written a definitive text on this important area of computer science which will be welcomed by all those working in the field
