oasis) Research is a single person company dedicated
to providing highly customized human engineering services. As
an introduction, my name is Wayne Walls. I am located in the
Los Angeles area and have been doing business as OACIS since
1994. For well over 15 years, I have been combining my background
in human performance evaluation with experience in software
development and applying it to user interface design. The name
OACIS is an acronym for the five elements that characterize
my approach to this activity. My goal is to meet my client's
requirements through a customized application of one or more
of these elements:
identify and understand the requirements and needs of all
the users of a system.
these requirements resulting in a successful integration with
the users job or task environment.
leads to a successful translation of requirements into design.
a proposed design that incorporates ongoing user input and
the design to provide timely, cost-effective evaluations prior
to final implementation.
