This subject quarter were addressed in a few varied views: consumer modelling, activity research, cognitive points of interplay and assimilation of knowledge, usual language speech and photographs, processing of multisensor info and its presentation, and a variety of purposes during which those applied sciences are used. as well as the former ESPRIT programmes, the explicit programme for info know-how of the ecu Framework Programme for 1994-1999 has known the ever expanding value of "ease of use" in machine functions. The paintings programme on Human convenience and safeguard is an try and tackle those matters. Its basic ambitions are the exploitation of current wisdom and services in usability engineering through integrating tools and instruments into coherent toolsets, the iteration of better human machine interface elements, demonstrating their program in perform, and largely disseminating the consequences and selling the take-up of those technologies.

Questionnaire became available [17]. SUMI is therefore the end product of nearly ten years of development experience with questionnaires for usability assessment [18,19]. SUMI is designed to investigate users' perception of the quality of software systems, and the evaluation results provide following information: a Global Usability Score for setting targets and making quick comparisons between products or versions of products, a Usability Profile which illustrates the different aspects of usability: efficiency, effect, helpfulness, control and leamability, an Item Consensual Analysis which identifies individulal items in the questionnaire which were rated significantly better or worse than the standard response rate, and which can he used for problem diagnosis.

S. Discussion This article describes what may be regarded as a field test. The only deviation from normal use of their car radio-cassette player that the subjects experienced, was the requirement to report at two-week intervals at the Institute for Perception Research for memory read-out. Neitber on those occasions, however, nor at the start of the test period were they given any specific information, for instance, as to their frequency of using the individual controls - not even when such a frequency turned out to be zero during the test.

The method depends on: 1. measuring the extent to which specific representative users of a product achieve specific goals when working with a system in a particular environment, and 2. analysing how they go about achieving these goals, and measuring the associated costs in terms of time. The method is supported by the MUSiC Performance Measurement Handbook [13] and by a software tool, DRUM - the Diagnostic Recorder for Usability Measurement [14], which enables rapid analysis of video recordings, and helps manage the evaluation.
