Developing ISO 9241-151 product certification process: Challenges

ISO 9241 Ergonomics of Human-System Interaction Standard, which is also called as Ergonomic requirements for office work with visual display terminals, is a standard containing many parts about ergonomics of human computer interaction. In this paper, we aim to elaborate the challenges evoked during ISO 9241-151 Product Certification Process handled at the Middle East Technical University (METU), Human Computer Interaction Research and Application Laboratory (METU-HCI-LAB), which is the first and only accredited laboratory of Turkish Standards Institute-TSE within the scope of “TS EN ISO/IEC 9241-151”.


Enhancing UML Connectors with Behavioral ALF Specifications for Exogenous Coordination of Software Components
Kocatas, Alper Tolga; Doğru, Ali Hikmet (2023-1-01)
Connectors are powerful architectural elements that allow the specification of interactions between software components. Since the connectors do not include behavior in UML, the components include the behavior for coordinating the components, complicating the designs of components and decreasing their reusability. In this study, we propose the enrichment of UML connectors with behavioral specifications. The goal is to provide separation of concerns for the components so that they are freed from coordination...
Design of a complex modulus test system for viscoelastic materials.
Erdoğan, Bilgeha; Özgen, Gökhan O..; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2019)
In this thesis, the design of test devices for dynamic characterization of elastomer materials and elastomer vibration control components are designed. For this purpose, two different studies are conducted. In the first study, an already installed test setup is modified to provide preloading capability. In the second study, a completely new test setup is established. Conceptual design studies are carried out based on the information obtained in the literature and related standards, then the validity of the ...
Evaluation of UAS Camera Operator Interfaces in a Simulated Task Environment An Optical Brain Imaging Approach
Çakır, Murat Perit; Akay, Daryal; Ayaz, Hasan; İşler, Veysi (null; 2012-07-11)
In this paper we focus on the effect of different interface designs on the performance and cognitive workload of sensor operators (SO) during a target detection task in a simulated environment. Functional near-infrared (fNIR) spectroscopy is used to investigate whether there is a relationship between target detection performance across three SO interfaces and brain activation data obtained from the subjects’ prefrontal cortices that are associated with relevant higher-order cognitive functions such as atten...
A measurement framework for component oriented software systems
Salman, Nael; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2006)
A measurement framework is presented for component oriented (CO) software systems. Fundamental concepts in component orientation are defined. The factors that influence CO systems’ structural complexity are identified. Metrics quantifying and characterizing these factors are defined. A set of properties that a CO complexity metric must satisfy are defined. Metrics are evaluated first using the set of properties defined in this thesis and also using the set of properties defined by Tian and Zelkowitz in [84]...
Design and analysis of ultrashort femtosecond laser amplifiers
Doğan, Ersin; Bilikmen, Kadri Sinan; Department of Physics (2006)
This thesis presents a compact femtosecond laser amplifier design for optical preamplifiers and power amplifiers consist of theoretical perspective, simulations to analyze and optimize beam performance. The propagation through optical media is simulated for every optical component such as mirrors and nonlinear crystal separately and suggested realignment of these components required increasing amplifier performance. Finally Gaussian beam propagation and aberration compensation has been conducted.
