Abstract:

Due to the massive increase in the number of mobile devices, high usage rates and the rising number of available applications, usability is a crucial factor for the success of mobile interactive systems. Since qualitative usability tests are quite expensive and time consuming we are developing a toolkit for remote usability testing that helps to detect usability problems without having to conduct traditional usability tests. Furthermore, the software should be widely applicable and not interfere with existing code. Based on this idea in this paper we (1) introduce our methodology to conduct qualitative requirements analysis, (2) show the results of a cross industry requirements analysis including the fields "m-commerce", "information system development" and "automation engineering" and (3) and present our approach to prioritize and implement the requirements of the automation engineering industry in a prototype.
