Usability has deep roots in software quality and is a core construct of HCI. To develop interactive and usable systems there is a need of such a model which can integrate HCI with Agile.  ...  —Software development field is becoming more productive day by day with the wonderful model name Agile. Agile is the main focus of research now a days.  ...  PROPOSED MODEL We have proposed a model in our paper for the solution of previous problems. We have used different usability evaluation process to check the usability incorporation in our model.  ...

The usability design process - integrating user-centered systems design in the software development process

Bengt Göransson, Jan Gulliksen, Inger Boivie
2003 Software Process: Improvement and Practice  
The usability design process is a UCSD approach for developing usable interactive systems, combining usability engineering with interaction design, and emphasizing extensive active user involvement throughout  ...  We argue that user-centered systems design (UCSD) must be tightly integrated in the software development process and suggest the usability design process as a way of doing this.  ...  The usability design process was developed in cooperation with Enea Redina AB. All cooperation from those who have influenced this work is greatly appreciated.  ...
