Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

An authoritative text by one of the premier researchers in usability engineering in the 1990s, Jakob Nielsen's Usability Engineering provides a landmark guide to software design that has helped bring this area of research into the mainstream of computing. "Usability" is the measurement of how easy or difficult it is to be productive with a piece of software. It often looks at the user interface--what elements appear onscreen and how efficient, confusing, and/or intuitive they are for beginning, intermediate, and advanced users. "Usability engineering" is the formal study of usability. It grew out of research on human factors, which looked at the way people interact with their environment.

The best thing about this book is its concise, cut-to-the-chase approach when defining usability and ways to measure and improve it. As the author notes, in the old days of computing, documents that attempted to define usability might have over 1,000 rules. The author offers just a handful of guiding principles for creating better software that apply even today. (Published just before the Internet revolution, this book's principles still hold true for Web designers, as well as those who create more traditional applications.)

Throughout this text, the author argues for the benefits of improved software usability. With software use as with all things, time is money and making more efficient interfaces translates into lower personnel costs and more productivity. The book also does a fine job of integrating usability design into the software development process, with guides for planning, working with end users, and running tests with users (whether on videotape or in person). The 50-page bibliography attests to the author's previous research on usability.

For anyone who needs to create better, more efficient software, Usability Engineering can help. This clear and intelligent guide to the science of usability engineering has helped enhance the potential of computers to work with end users more efficiently. In the new century, software developers will undoubtedly seek new advances in usability, in part because of the groundwork laid by books like this one. --Richard Dragan

Topics covered: Usability basics, measuring usability, types of users, history of user interfaces, the usability engineering lifecycle, design techniques, heuristics and hints for improving usability, testing, managing user tests, assessing usability, interface standards, internationalization, and Computer-Aided Usability Engineering (CAUSE) tools.

Pressestimmen

"The purpose of Jakob Nielsen's Usability Engineering is to help nontechnical people improve the systems so that they are not only error-free but also easier and more pleasant to use, and more efficient. It is a book that ...shows us how to change the world and does so admirably...One of this book's strengths is that it provides a wide selection of methods for improving systems, and allows for the unavoidable constraints of the real world." --NEW SCIENTIST

2.0 von 5 Sternen Overly wordy. 16. November 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
Although Neilsen has a lot of good information in here, the information is hidden beneath layers of writing. Every point is repeated several times, and the author is incredibly wordy. As a professional writer, it astounds me that someone could go on about usability without having the faintest idea of how to make his own writing usable. If edited properly, this volume could be reduced to half the size and give exactly the same information. The passive voice just about slaughters this book. One gets the impression that the author thinks he must write in this boring, textbook style in order to be considered "The Book" in the industry. This is unfortunate, because many readers simply won't make it through this book, despite the important information it has to impart.

3.0 von 5 Sternen 20/20 vision on only 60 percent of the problem 2. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
As a Web site designer, I've long been an advocate of JakobNielsen's ideas -- to an extent. Usability is arguably the mostimportant aspect of any design project, and an aspect too often ignored by many software and Web site designers.
Mr. Nielsen, in his book, very aptly points out typical errors and common stumbling blocks of interface design, and presents very convincing arguments and methods for solving these problems. However, strict adherence to Mr. Nielsen's interface design techniques, at the expense of less easily measured human factors, will often result in a sterile and boring product. Both are eminently efficient and usable, but are also wonderful examples of visual blandness -- nearly devoid of the human and aesthetic factors that contributes to a depth of personality and a richness of sensory stimulation.
Although Mr. Nielsen never specifically advocates this, the logical conclusion of his approach is an interface design whose personality and soul have been stripped away in a slavish preference for pure, unencumbered efficiency and usability. Contrary to Mr. Nielsen's examples, the quest for usability should not abrogate the need to avoid ugliness.
For the sake of efficient usability, I wonder if Mr. Nielsen has replaced his impractical, hard-to-maintain backyard lawn with efficient asphalt paving. Or maybe pulled out his expensive, hard-to-clean, dirt collecting, living room carpet and replaced it with an efficient concrete floor. I'm joking of course, but even if Mr. Nielson thinks this way, most do not. Yet, this is the result achieved by many of his user interface examples.
Perhaps on the planet Vulcan where everyone thinks like Mr. Spock, Mr. Nielsen's conclusions and methods might be the eminently rational final word on good interface design.

When I had to read about usability engineering I took this book. I don't regret it. No one who is interested in getting an idea on usability engineering will be disappointed. Many ideas where one would mean it's obvious are explained in enough detail to make anyone see it is not so easy to satisfy usability needs.
BUT, yes there is a but, the author is far too self-centered in his writing. Take a look at his references and you will be disappointed if you were looking for other interesting titles. It seems like he is the only one writing on this subject. That this is not so can be found for example in Theo Mandel's book. HE names many other resources.
My advice: Read this book first and thoroughly. Then, when you gained some insight, read other references like Theo Mandel, Jeff Rubin, Joann Hackos, and others.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Classic, The Textbook on Usability 28. April 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
I've read some of the criticisms of this book - its wordy, hard to read, etc. I have to say I don't agree. Whenever people ask me to recommend books on software usability, this is always one of the top 5 that I suggest.
Its a textbook, not a novel, and it has all the advantages (precise, scientific language) and all the drawbacks of a textbook (dry, dense).
However, there isn't any better source on things like how to put together a usability test, how to cost justify usability in the overall design process, or even simply, what the usability process is all about. You can't be serious about software usability if you haven't read this book!
And while Jakob's book "Designing Web Usability" is more popular, to me, this one is the better book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent, practical how-to book 16. Juli 1996
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
"Usability Engineering" explains the principles of software
usability, and clearly outlines techiniques for assesing
the usablility of your product.
His techniques give a lot of bang for the
buck. There is no excuse not to use them.
He makes convincing arguments for the value of
incorporating usability into the entire software design
and development process. This book is an excellent companion
to Cooper's User Interface bible,"About Face".

Satisfaction: The system should be pleasant to use, so that users are subjectively satisfied when using it; they like it. &quote;

Errors: The system should have a low error rate, so that users make few errors during the use of the system, and so that if they do make errors they can easily recover from them. Further, catastrophic errors must not occur. &quote;
