  1. 1. Adding usability : Methods for modelling, user interface design and evaluation

    Author : Magnus Lif; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Materials science; Modelling; analysis; design; evaluation; user interface; human computer interaction; system development; usability; utility; methods; workspace; iterative; designer; Materialvetenskap; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap; datavetenskap med inriktning människa-datorinteraktion; Computer Science; human-computer interaction;

    Abstract : Many system development projects fail to provide information systems with high usability. This thesis focuses on how to solve this problem by introducing methods for modelling, user interface design and evaluation. These methods are primarily designed to serve as complements to existing methods for systems development. READ MORE
