...and now for another Human Factors Minute! User analysis:
User Analysis is a process that is focused on designing for the intended user or operator by establishing the characteristics that define them, detailing key features or attributes to be included in a desing, and creating a persona for the target user base.
This analysis is best done at the outset of the design process to identify most common user types, and the characteristics that they would be assumed to have in common to help inform design.
This can be problematic if the design concept does not match the actual user, or if the identified user base is too vague to make clear design decisions from.
This process is, however, usually quite inexpensive, and commonly used.
