Abstract : Lessons learned are identified as they have resulted from designing user interfaces for the Integrated Maintenance Information System (IMIS). The report is organized according to user interface issues (e.g., Hardware Portable Maintenance Aid Battery Requirement and Software Tab Groups). Each issue is contained within a section of the document. Within each section, a chronology is presented that shows how each issue was addressed in the various IMIS proof-of concept systems. Seven different systems were developed as part of the IMIS proof-of-concept programs at Armstrong Laboratory Logistics Research Division. Within the various section of the document, many references are cited to support design decisions. Recommendations for future IMIS user interfaces are also included.
