Abstract : Two sets of prototype screens for a complex, computerized analysis tool were evaluated using three usability analysis techniques. The experimental usability method identified more interface design problems of a severe nature than the other methods did and gave a clear indication of which prototype design to choose for the final development process. The implications for selecting appropriate usability techniques and using them collectively, as a process, are discussed.
