Summary
  • The most frequently-used criteria for judging software friendliness are speed, menus and help facilities. The functionality of the software-user interaction must be addressed during design phase. It is preferable to forfeit programming time or hardware performance than to produce a hard-to-use product since software is only useful if it gets used. There should be menu consistency. Screens should be uncluttered and easy to read, with user-familiar dialect. Active help should always be available to the user. Development of friendly software depends on input from the user community during the design and construction phases.
