A question of depth

I had a very interesting conversation with a customer who insisted that
their [very well documented] 'business process' was wholly separate from any
human or system interaction. On further investigation I found notable
evidence of human involvement.

This is a common 'traditional' attitude in the manufacturing and automotive
sectors as their is an historically, well defined supply chain. IT plays a
fundamental role in that supply chain and tends to rely heavily on a
pre-defined business process i.e. well established mainframe applications,
that are undergoing change to increase productivity.

Selecting elements in a table...

Here's an IxD problem I've grappled with for years and haven't had a
satisfactory resolution. I expect that many of us have opinions, perhaps
some have references, and maybe even some studies.

In many use cases / design patterns, the proverbial "table" (matrix, grid)
is an excellent widget to both display the results of data and provide an
input mechanism.
