Numerous highly innovative computer solutions to engineering problems are of little use to the practicing engineer because these programs are not supported by adequate user interface. The intended users of these programs are often compelled to attend expensive training where a large portion of time is spent learning to use the limited data imput/output resources of these programs. Little time remains for discussion of the engineering principles and limitations of these programs. Such programs are usually accompanied by large manuals which explain their use. The scientific principles that form the basis of these programs are either neglected or lost in the user instructions. Combining problem solving techniques and complex data structures with properly designed user interfaces can improve the quality of engineering programs.
