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.

From Our Editors

Frequently, when software is being developed, software engineers do not consider how easy the system will be to learn and use. Likewise, interface specialists tend to express their concerns in ways which are either too complicated, or which are difficult for the software developer to implement. In User Interface Design, Entity Relationship Modeling--ERMIA--provides a set of concepts, which can be used with equal facility by software developers and interface designers.
