Abstract

Quantifying usability is important in Human-Centered Design. Checklist methods are one of the methods of quantifying usability method by usability inspection. Checklists so often used for quantifying usability in design development at present. However, checklist methods have some problems regarding quantifying usability. First problem, the differences of the results come up by the difference of usability evaluator. Second problem, the right evaluation by checklists is hard if the checklist doesn't coincide with the tasks of evaluated products. Then, we aimed at proposing the usability checklist corresponding to task flows as a way of solution of current problems. The proposed method is versatile and easy quantifying usability method by checklist. This paper shows our proposed method.
