This title describes a design process which can be used by practitioners in busy commercial environments called GUIDE - Graphical User Interface Design and Evaluation. It contains techniques (usability requirement specification, task modelling, object modelling, style guide definition, GUI design, prototyping, and evaluation), integrated together into a coherent framework. Tha material is intended for professional software developers. The book has been written by developers for developers and is designed to be user-centred in it's description of the development process. It also features the technique of user object modelling and shows how this is integrated with task analysis and GUI design.
