The IUSR Project: Industry Usability Report



Jean C. Scholtz


The Industry Usability Report (IUSR) Project is designed to help potential corporate purchasers of software obtain information about the usability of supplier products. There are two parts to the IUSR project: a proposed format for sharing usability information, and a pilot study which will allow both supplier (the developer of the software) and consumer (the purchaser of the software) companies to test the effectiveness of using usability test results as procurement criteria and to verify the usefulness of the reporting format.
