The chapters in this book are written by prominent researchers and practitioners who bring to light the major issues and challenges posed by this integration, and offer a variety of solutions in order to address the integration of HCI and SE, including: Extensions of software development methodologies to accommodate for the specific constraints of usage-centered design; Introduction of innovative, structured, and model-driven user interface engineering approaches; Addressing software architecture issues in the design of user interfaces; Reengineering of existing systems for better usability.Hence, the delivered version of the system is less likely to become disconnected from the specification. ... design have a full specification: attributes, user actions, links to other views, state models and activity diagrams to provide context. ... Similar code-generation processes can be applied to reduce the manual effort in applying the recipes needed to a UML model. ... For example, the early ideas came from the examination of IBMa#39;s internal development processes, but it is now beinganbsp;...
