[ L ] GOMS: goals, operators, methods, and selection rules


GOMS is an acronym that stands for GOALS, OPERATORS, METHODS, and SELECTION RULES.

A GOMS model is composed of METHODS that are used to achieve specific GOALS. The METHODS are then composed of OPERATORS at the lowest level. The OPERATORS are specific steps that a user performs and are assigned a specific execution time. If a GOAL can be achieved by more than one METHOD, then SELECTION RULES are used to determine the proper METHOD.
