9781848000186: Adoption-centric Usability Engineering: Systematic Deployment, Assessment and Improvement of Usability Methods in Software Engineering

Developing software systems which are easy to use while simultaneously increasing the productivity, performance and satisfaction of users is still a major challenge in software engineering. Thus a large number of usability engineering methods have been proposed to systematically develop software with high usability. A large number of studies indicate that even basic usability engineering methods are not integrated in software development lifecycles practiced in industrial settings. Yet problems in the adoption of methods by project teams are rarely examined. This book provides a new perspective on the integration and adoption of usability engineering methods by software development teams. The adoption of methods by project teams – contrary to popular belief – is not assured just because it is mandated by the organization. This work argues that usability engineering methods can only be regarded as integrated in the software development process of an organization when these methods are practiced and accepted by development teams. So far no frameworks for examining the acceptance of methods by project teams and for exploiting such data for guiding project teams in method deployment are available. To address this problem, this book presents an approach which consists of a process meta-model for guiding project teams in the deployment of usability en- neering methods and a measurement framework for measuring the acceptance of the deployed methods. The approach is called Adoption-Centric Usability Engineering.

Product Description:

Where should usability techniques and HCD knowledge be considered in the existing software development lifecycle to maximize benefits gained from SE and HCD approaches? This book provides an integrative answer while proposing a systematic approach for the adoption, assessment and deployment of usability engineering methods within software development teams.

The proposed approach, called adoption-centric usability engineering (ACUE), provides a process to capture usability engineering methods together with a context profile. The context profile encodes human factors that contributed to acceptance or rejection of usability methods in past projects. This context-sensitive description of usability engineering is called a USEPack (Usability Engineering Experience Package).

Written for software developers, managers, educators and graduates from Academia and Industry, this book provides a complete, step-by-step approach for cost-effective integration of usability engineering methods in the software development lifecycle.

From the Back Cover:

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.
