Requirements for new technologies becoming part of on-screen work as well as directions for their implementation, especially in standardization activities
This research report aims at constructive support for restructuring those parts of the ISO 9241 series, which deal with requirements for visual displays. Among other aspects, the restructuring of ISO 9241 becomes necessary since the scope of application of current visual display technologies expands from the traditional office environment to other work environments (e.g. mobile work environments, hospital work places, production work places, etc.).
The various new technologies with their new visual properties as well as the supported tasks and environmental conditions are analysed and described.
Based on the inter-relationship between user, task, environment and technology, general recommendations for new technologies are being derived.
Furthermore, proposals are made for structuring the emerging Standard ISO CD 18789 (ISO 9241-xx) "Ergonomics of human system interaction - Ergonomic requirements and measurement techniques for electronic visual displays".
Requirements for new technologies becoming part of on-screen work as well as directions for their implementation, especially in standardization activities.
