Abstract

We present a possible method and tool to support the novice designers in the design tasks. Although in literature stated that practitioners depend on memory and experiences, novice designers would take time to learn to acquire sufficient experience. The purpose of this research is to help novice designers to fulfill the usability goals that have determined by the expert in designing a system. The proposed methodology and tool can be considered as an assistance tool for novice designer in decision making in regards to prototype selection as well as the task-pattern mapping template for pattern selection in fulfilling the usability goal targeted. The tool was designed to manage the decisions information and to recommend the chosen prototype based on the Analytical Hierarchical Process (AHP) technique. In overall, about 87% of expert evaluators and prospective users were agreed with the suggestion of prototype selection from the proposed tool. The findings from this study revealed that the cooperation from industry experts was valuable in determined the usability goal and direction and getting accumulative feedbacks both from users and experts.
