What is usability?
‘Usability’ is an umbrella term that encompasses two related concepts:

  • Usability is an attribute of the quality of a system:
  • “We need to create a usable intranet”
    Usability is a process or set of techniques used during a design and development project:

    “We need to include usability activities in this project”

This second aspect is sometimes described as usability engineering, and is more accurately described as user-centred design.

‘Usability’ refers to the quality of a system and the process of designing a usable system
