Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An introduction to Entity-Relationship-Modeling, showing how the technique can be applied to interface issues. The book explains those aspects of entity-relationship modeling which are relevant to ERMIAs, and presents the extensions to the notation that are necessary for modeling interfaces. Bridging the gap in the development of interactive systems, ERMIA provides a set of concepts which can be used equally easily by software developers and interface designers alike.

Synopsis:

Conceptual Modeling for User Interface Development introduces the technique of Entity-Relationship-Modeling and shows how the technique can be applied to interface issues. It explains those aspects of entity-relationship modeling which are relevant to ERMIAs, and it presents the extensions to the notation that are necessary for modeling interfaces. This book is aimed at both interface designers and software developers in an attempt to bridge the gap in the development of interactive systems. Too often, when software is being developed, the software engineers do not sufficiently consider how easy the system will be to learn and use. On the other side, interface specialists tend to express their concerns in ways which are either too detailed to be readily understood or in ways which are difficult for the software developer to implement. ERMIA provides a set of concepts which can be used equally easily by software developers and interface designers alike.
