Abstract : Human engineering considerations and plans for the study and evaluation of the GPDS/LUCID system are discussed. Specific project goals are: (1) to determine how well the current systems match users' needs, and (2) to make recommendations for improving the system where these needs are not met. An ultimate project goal will be to determine human engineering design principles useful for the development of user-oriented, on-line information processing systems in general. Project investigation will examine the GPDS/LUCID systems from the point of view of a user who is essentially unsophisticated in computer programming. (Author)
