The goal of Evaluating Throughout Development is to ensure that user-centered development processes lead to the optimal development of usable systems. By utilizing ongoing evaluation challenges and opportunities can be identified early in the development life cycle, when dealing with them costs the least and may have the greatest possible benefits.
USER Lab uses and teaches about the Putting Usability First methodology. PUF identifies and utilizes various opportunities for usability evaluations throughout the development life cycle. PUF can be used on its own for UE activities or integrated with existing SE methodologies. PUF can be scaled down for small projects and scaled up for later releases or for larger projects.
Further information about PUF is contained on our Usability Engineering Methods page.
