A) User requirements: I have gathered the requirement by the interviewing method. 7. It must have a mini calculator. Clock shows the current temperature. Usability criteria Usability is generally regarded as ensuring that interactive products are easy to learn. It has day facility. It also shows the Qibla direction. User 3: 1. It must tell the day. As it is interaction design product and fulfill the user requirement it must be effective for all type of users. It also has the both 12 hour as well as 24 hours time facility. User 2: 1. 7. It involves optimizing the interactions people have with interactive products to enable them to carry out their activities at work. I have interviewed 5 user and they have following requirements are must be in my new clock: User 1: 1. 3. Clock also has the both 12 hour as well as 24 hours time format facility. It must have alarm. More specifically. It must have alarm. It has day time visible in day and light for night time. It has day time visible in day light as well as night time. It must have alarm. 5. 5. 6. 2. It must have facility of time announcement. It recites AZAAN as the prayer time starts. month and year facility. Clock must have the facility of analog time as well digital time. 7. Clock glows and shines in night time. 2. 6. 3. effective to use. 5. 2. and enjoyable from the user's perspective. date. 4. Clock has day facility. my clock the usability that is broken down into the following goals: Effective to use (effectiveness) Interaction design is concerned with designing interactive products to support people in their everyday and working lives. 4. 4. Clock must have the Flash light. . Clock has day time visible in day light as well as night time. 6. It also has the both 12 hour as well as 24 hours time facility. 3. Efficient to use (efficiency) In my proposed clock time watching is efficient as it clearly shows time in analog as well as digital way. It can also tell the ending time of prayer. school. and in their everyday life.

Easy to learn (learnability) It is too easy to learn to use. It is good utility as helpful for the blind persons and also having calculator facility for the student. Have good utility (utility) It is good utilization device that help to fulfill the needs of the users.Safe to use (safety) It body is composed of metal material and safe. . Anyone use it only once can learn the whole mechanism easily and no need for the further assistance. It also helps to say prayers in time.

This may be measured. 3. Safety: Data does not get lost nor does the user press the wrong button. does the system support you in keeping appointments. the response time for finding a specific day or a specific appointment is very short. for example. Note that the criteria must be measurable and very specific. or actions mean the same thing Help users recognize. actions. Effectiveness: The clock is developed in an interaction designing way that is concerned with designing interactive products to support people in their everyday and working lives. Identifying measurable criteria for this goal is particularly difficult since it is a combination of the other goals. 1. situations. diagnose. taking notes. and options visible. But you may have found others. and so on. It body is composed of metal material and safe. For example. . As it is interaction design product and fulfill the user requirement it must be effective for all type of users. In my proposed clock time watching is efficient as it clearly shows time in analog as well as digital way. 2. Consistency and standards-avoid making users wonder whether different words. and recover from errors-use plain language to describe the nature of the problem and suggest a way of solving it error prevention-where possible prevent errors occurring in the first place Recognition rather than recall-make objects. Flexibility and efficiency of use-provide accelerators that are invisible to novice users. Efficiency: There is a facility in the clock to select the Zone.D) Product Evaluation: Finding measurable characteristics for some of these is not easy. as the number of times this happens per hour of use. but allow more experienced users to carry out tasks more quickly Aesthetic and minimalist design-avoid using information that is irrelevant or rarely needed. Documentation provides the information that can be easily clock is managed and provides help in a set of concrete steps that can easily be followed.
