What is UX
By now, let's say User Experience Design is equivalent to UCD (User-Centered Design).
What is UCD?
User-Centered Design is a design philosophy and a process in which the needs, wants, and limitations of end users of a product are given extensive attention at each stage of the development process. Usability of products may be improved by implementing different types of UCD techniques during the development process, iteratively.
Why should I use UX manager?
Using UX manager has several benefits:
- Manage all the information needed by UCD techniques in a single place.
- Reutilize elements between different techniques, or between different iterations of the same technique.
- Share information between experts, developers, stakeholders, etc.
Who can use UX manager?
Anyone involved in the development of interfaces: from the members of the development team when defining user requirements or prototypes, to independent usability consultants when performing and reporting evaluations.
Which techniques should I use in my project?
It depends; UX manager doesn't force you to implement any specific technique or implementing them in any order. If you need some help choosing UCD techniques, take a look at these links:
