Book Summary:

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.

Book Summary:

Humanware is everything which helps human beings to handle (use and look after) a product, e.g. controls and indicators, program ergonomy, location of assembly divisions in parts to be put together, signs and other markings, instructions, training and technical consultation. Against the background of how humans behave when handling a product, this book offers advice and explains principles for suitable design of humanware: how to analyse needs, design different types of humanware, and test that it works. A wide range of specific examples are described. Exercises after each chapter give readers the possibility of trying to solve humanware problems themselves. Suggested solutions are provided at the end of the book. The book is intended for practising developers, designers and technical communicators, and for students of these professions.

Book Summary:

Information technologies play a significant role in modern information-driven societies, making a comprehensive understanding of digital media a fundamental requisite to success. Cases on Usability Engineering: Design and Development of Digital Products provides readers with case studies and real-life examples on usability methods and techniques to test the design and development of digital products, such as web pages, video games, and mobile computer applications. Students, lecturers, and academics concentrating in computer science can use these cases to investigate how and why usability can improve the design of digital technology, offering diverse technological solutions that many academics have largely failed to disseminate. This book is part of the Advances in Human and Social Aspects of Technology series collection.

Book Summary:

Usability Engineering wird in kleinen Projekten oftmals vernachlässigt, da entweder keine Ressourcen für einen externen Usability Engineer vorhanden sind oder die Entwickler nicht ausreichend Wissen mitbringen, um die Aspekte des Usability Engineerings abzudecken. Die vorliegende Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit den Ansätzen zur Integration von Usability Engineering in Scrum. Es wird der Frage nachgegangen, welche Methoden für kleine Projekte, die kein Budget für einen Usability Engineer haben, am besten geeignet sind. Die Fragestellung wird auf Basis der aktuellen Fachliteratur diskutiert. Im Ergebnis wird deutlich, dass es zwei Ansätze gibt, die sich besonders gut für eine Integration von Usability Engineering in Scrum eignen. Abhängig von der Projektgröße und der verfügbaren Zeit eignen sich sowohl Discount Usability Engineering als auch Usability Engineering für die Integration in Scrum.*****Usability Engineering is often neglected in small projects, because either no resources for an external Usability Engineer are available or the developers do not have enough knowledge to cover all aspects of Usability Engineering. This paper deals with the integration of Usability Engineering in Scrum. It will examine which methods are best suited for small projects with either no Usability Engineer available or no budget for an external Usability Engineer. This issue will be discussed based on the current literature. The results show that there are two approaches which are suitable for the integration of Usability Engineering in Scrum. Depending on the size of the project and the available time time, Discount Usability Engineering or Extreme Discount Usability Engineering are suitable for the integration.
