interface design

Interface design deals with the process of developing a method for two (or more) modules in a system to connect and communicate. These modules can apply to hardware, software or the interface between a user and a machine. An example of a user interface could include a GUI, a control panel for a nuclear power plant, or even the cockpit of an aircraft. In systems engineering, all the inputs and outputs of a system, subsystem, and its components are often listed in an interface control document as part of the requirements of the engineering project. The development of a user interface is a unique field. More information can be found on the subject here: User interface design
