MC partners heuristic evaluation

A heuristic evaluation is a way to test whether a website is user friendly. In other words, it tests the site’s usability. Unlike user-testing, where the site (or prototype) is evaluated by users, in a heuristic evaluation the site is evaluated by usability experts. That’s why you’ll sometimes find it referred to as an “expert review”.

Problem statement

Heuristics can be thought of as rules of thumb. A heuristic evaluation or expert review of a web or mobile site is based on a set of predetermined heuristics or qualitative guidelines. While there are 200+ criteria by which a site can be evaluated, many experts’ questions are based on Jacob Nielsen’s 10 Usability Heuristics for User Interface Design.

Overall conclusion

In term of functionality the app show a valuable information highly detailed, so the problem is not how many data can handle is how to show the results in comprehensible way, structured, accesible from different devices. The user must undestand all the interface without a previous information. Besides we can integrate some interactives tours or take examples of other interfaces like MacOSX, where we can obtain highlight help while we are typing. We should aboard the problem taking into account UX studies to solve the main user concern and priorize the solutions.

Final Results

Heuristic evaluation is a valuable method for assessing the usability of a user interface. Its benefits include identifying usability issues early in the design process, reducing the need for expensive redesigns. It provides expert insights into user experience problems, allowing for targeted improvements. It helps to uncover inconsistencies, violations of design guidelines, and usability challenges that users may encounter. This evaluation method is cost-effective, quick to conduct, and requires minimal resources. It allows for multiple evaluators to provide different perspectives, enhancing the breadth of identified issues. Heuristic evaluation ultimately leads to improved user satisfaction, efficiency, and overall usability of the product or system
