Abstract

The objective of this research is to propose a user-interface design index that corresponds with mental model structural elements. A total of 35 user-interface design indexes were extracted from previous design related rules and design guidelines that pertain to design indexes. Next, the user-interface design indexes were linked to the mental model structural elements and a formal concept analysis was done in order to determine the relationship between them. The mental model structural elements were classified and structured according to human information processing, functional and structural models. Finally, we describe how designers can easily construct user-interface designs based mainly on the user-interface design index and mental model structural elements.
