"The objective of this Phase I effort is to design an Intelligent Advisor for Human-Computer Interface Design (IAHCID) in preparation for demonstration of a prototype system in Phase II. IAHCID will provide the HCI design team with rapid accessibility tothe enormous array of existing design data, including recommendations for the recent multi-modal HCI techniques, filtered and tailored for the design project at hand.One IACID component will assist HCI designers' analysis of the future system, defining the nature of the required tasks and information elements. Another component will allow the user to constrain the intelligent advisor solutions in accordance withhardware acquisition requirements and likely operational conditions. Both rule-based and case-based reasoning systems and databases will support the Design Recommendations Component, which provides guidelines for optimal control/display techniques foreach information element identified in the task analysis. Recommendation references and examples will be provided on demand.The IACID Interactive System Prototype Decision Aid will assist the HCI designer in specific HCI element selection and layout, interactively leading the user through the logical steps of the design process, ensuring that all of the required informationelements are represented, and offering suggestions based upon proven design principles. The commercial success of IAHCID is nearly assured because it will great
