HURTADO, Luini L; CASTRILLON, Omar D  and  OLIVAR, Gerard. An Automated Methodology for Usability Evaluation of Interfaces of Industrial Supervision. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2013, vol.24, n.4, pp.95-104. ISSN 0718-0764.

The development, application and validation of a methodology for usability evaluation of interfaces of industrial supervision systems are presented. The fundamental aspects of usability evaluation software based systems are described and the methodology is presented. The methodology was applied in a laboratory to monitor various interfaces of a liquid dosing process. The system is used to determine the value of the supervision interface for the interaction between the operator and the process. The ratings were useful for classifying interface usability. To check the validity of the methodology, a hypothesis test was done and results compared to two traditional methods: expert inspection and inquiry to users. It was determined that the proposed methodology is equivalent to the other two methods, but it has the advantage of being completely automated.

Keywords : usability; supervision systems; human-machine interface; neuro-fuzzy systems.
