requirements: how to specify, test and report usability
The objective of PRUE
was to demonstrate the value of making usability a concrete issue
for consumers and suppliers, making use of the"Common
Industry Format". PRUE intended to enhance consumer-supplier
relationships by trialing, enhancing and promoting use of the CIF
format as part of the procurement process. Experienced usability
service providers from the network of European
Usability Support Centres worked with four pairs of supplier
and consumer organisations in four countries. PRUE documented the
costs and benefits of producing CIF format usability reports, and
the benefits for the supplier and consumer organisations. PRUE provided
feedback to NIST to ensure that the final scheme (which is intended
to be submitted to ISO) meets European needs.PRUE was a 12 month
EU-supported project (IST-1999-20692) that started in December 2000.
