Resumen To ensure efficient and effective operation of a computer-based information system, the following factors should be considered in its design: the physical environment within which the user is working; the hardware configuration; the type and style of dialogue between the user and the system; the amount of information required by the user and its presentation. These guidelines describe general features of good dialogue design, the use of colour, menus, graphs, charts and tables, and the structure and layout of text on VDU screens. The characteristics and applicability of several input/output devices are outlined.
