The development of electronic displays opens completely new possibilities of information presentation in comparison to the use of conventional display systems. Since information presentation to the human operator or control-supervisor is of great importance it is necessary to evaluate alternative display configurations so that the one which has the lowest operator workload or permits the best performance can be selected.
