Usability Engineering

Regulatory usability in line with design development

Usability test evaluation

The usability of a product is only as good as its integration into the development process!

In order for usability methods such as context analysis or formative evaluations to lead to an actual improvement of the product, they must be anchored in the project at the right time and with the appropriate questions. We have made it our goal to effectively incorporate the needs of the user into the overall development by synchronizing usability engineering and design development.

Your advantages

Why you should integrate usability into your process

Bullet point icon

Differentiation from competitors

By providing a positive product experience, you increase the satisfaction of your users and thus create stronger customer loyalty
Bullet point icon

Securing the Summative Evaluation

Problems in use are identified at an early stage and surprises are avoided in the summative evaluation
Bullet point icon

Safeguarding decisions

Objective data facilitates, secures and justifies decisions and reduces the risk of undesirable developments
Bullet point icon

Fulfillment of the MDR

You meet the requirements of the MDR and IEC 62366-1 and successfully implement the usability process

Basis for the accompanying documentation

The usability documentation can be used as a basis for further elaboration of the user manual, training or marketing materials
Usability engineering as an effective tool

Usability identifies, design solves

In our understanding, design and development create solutions within the problem space identified and defined by usability. Through coordinated processes of technical development, design and usability engineering, the disciplines complement each other optimally and through the right interface methods from our medical design process, usability engineering becomes an effective tool for your development and not just an elaborate accessory for the medical device file.

‍Usabilityfrontend & backend

The accessibility of findings and results from usability activities is, in addition to process integration, another decisive factor for the effectiveness of usability engineering. Often, project participants first have to fight their way through bulky usability documents, i.e., the "usability backend", in order to access the information relevant to them. For the usability file required by MDR and FDA, these formal documents are of course relevant. However, they are not always suitable for the daily work of project teams or product managers.

A "usability front end" in which content and findings are made usable for the respective needs of the project participants is therefore the key to success. In this way, usability can be made into a common communication basis and interface between the various stakeholders.

Usability Engineering Services

Usability integration into the design process

Usability from the very first idea! We offer continuous support of the design process through usability engineering, allowing usability findings to be integrated as early and directly as possible into your product development.

To this end, our design services mesh seamlessly with usability activities to help capture and develop human-machine interaction in a structured way.

In this way, usability becomes a living part of the development process, facilitating decision-making and safeguarding conceptual and technical development.

Formative & summative evaluation

The proof of the pudding is in the eating - testing is the best way to ensure the quality and functionality of a product. That's why we work with you to conduct in-process formative and final summative evaluations in accordance with the MDR and FDA.
