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.
