Abstract

Users increasingly base their judgement of the functionality and quality of a product on their perception of its interface. The identification of techniques that improve the interface are therefore of great interest to developers of software and other products alike. By addressing issues early in the design cycle, redesign and maintenance costs can be reduced. By improving the integration between human factors on the one hand and the software engineering and product development team on the other, good human factors practice can be incorporated in our products. This suggests that we need a methodology that supports the interface design process and that enables it to be coupled with a concurrent product development activity.
