Abstract: The Usability Evaluation and Management (USEMAN) system is an automated tool to support the planning and conduct of usability evaluations of the user-computer interface. USEMAN is designed to enhance the thoroughness, effectiveness and efficiency in the identification of evaluation requirements. Through its five component architecture, USEMAN (a) supports generation of a usability test plan, (b) provides a comprehensive management system for tracking evaluation progress, (c) incorporates a set of design guidelines to be used in the analysis of evaluation data, (d) collects, logs and analyses evaluation data, and (e) standardizes report generation. USEMAN represents a substantial step forward in the support of usability assessment, as it is designed to effectively support practitioners throughout the usability evaluation process. The USEMAN system will enhance the usability evaluation process within the Department of Homeland Security, other government agencies, and commercial applications via its automated capabilities.
