This article will discuss how we develop the system with usability in mind. Usability is a set of principles that related how the people learn to use the syste. So let’s get started.

They are five basic of usability attributes namely (Nielsen, 1993)

  • Learnability
  • Efficiency
  • Memorability
  • Error tolerance
  • Satisfication
