Enhancing Usability in a Distributed System
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
This report examines the digital information cycle (searching, viewing, and creating), and argues that the problems that are encountered should not be solved one at a time. Instead we must look at the system as a whole and redesign it.
The report concludes that there are five areas that can enhance the usability in an information system: organize information in classes, distributed and automatic identification, separate functions from content, deal with uncertainty, and provide automatic environment management.
