Proposes a proven approach for integrating usability methods within software engineering, with an explicit methodology
Borne out of a collaboration between Columbia University and DaimlerChrysler
Competition touches on need for integration but does not have same explicit method
Developing easy to use software systems which also increase productivity, performance and satisfaction to users is still one of major challenges faced by software engineers.
In providing a new perspective on the integration and adoption of usability engineering methods by software development teams, this book demonstrates that usability engineering methods can only be integrated in the software development process when they are fully adopted by the project teams. The authors present an adoption centric usability engineering approach that consists of a process meta-model for guiding project teams in the deployment of usability engineering methods and provide a framework for measuring the acceptance of the deployed methods.
Software developers, managers and educators from both academia and industry will find this comprehensible, step-by-step approach to integrating usability engineering methods in the software development lifecycle a useful guide in extending and improving on methodologies, and complementary to existing software development strategies.
