Abstract : The object of the paper is to refer briefly to various human factors which are important features in the design of efficient systems. The efficiency of a system will depend on man's ability to perceive clearly any information which represents a demand for action. The stimulus must be attention-claiming, distinctive, meaningful and easily converted into control actions. (Author)
