  • In mobile phone, complex user interface tend to cause the degradation of product usability. This problem is mainly due to the small hardware user interface of mobile phone. That is, because many functions must be operated in small hardware interface, the principle of one-to-one mapping between a function and a control is disregarded in design, often. In order to resolve this problem, users' characteristics must be considered in the user interface design of mobile phone. So, users' basic characteristics that must be considered in the user interface design of mobile phone were studied through two experiments, questionnaire survey and user testing.

  • This paper analyzes the design and usability of maternal notebook mobile application and suggests the improvement direction of the application. The researcher compared and analyzed the functions of maternal notebook applications, conducted user interviews and expert evaluations. The conclusions of this study are the use of appropriate information volume, proportional screen division focusing on main functions, the use of GNB format of main menus, the prohibition of double menu configuration, the use of color consistent with the image of the service, the use of few font sizes, the use of appropriate colors in typography, the use of rich icons with uniform design, card format, list format, but also timeline and infographic forms that make rich user interface design. Maternal notebook application research is expected to be an important reference for research on similar mobile applications with complex functions such as information provision, user history, and community, along with improved research in healthcare design.

  • 유선 인터넷에서 인스턴트 메신저는 간단한 질문/확인, 만남이나 작업 조정, 사회적인 친교 등을 위해 광범위하게 활용되고 있다. 이를 무선으로 확장하기 위하여 MSN, Yahoo, AIM, ICQ, 버디버디, 네이트온 등이 모바일용 메신저를 내놓고 있다. 특히 한국 10대의 경우 SMS를 실시간 대화에 가깝게 (짧고 빈번하게) 사용하고 있기 때문에 무선 메신저는 큰 호응이 있으리라 예상하였다. 그러나 네이트온 모바일 메신저의 경우, 2002년 출시된 이후 별다른 인기를 끌지 못하고 있다. 이에 저자들은 네이트온 사용자들의 사용행태를 분석하여 문제점을 파악하고, 일반 SMS 사용자들과 네이트온 사용자들의 무선 커뮤니케이션 사용행태를 1주일간의 Diary Study에 기초한 Contextual Inquiry (Intermittent)를 실시하여 사용률이 저조한 이유를 분석한 뒤, 퍼소나를 구성하여 무선 환경에 맞는 완전히 혁신적인 새로운 형태의 무선 메신저 사용자 인터페이스를 설계하였다. 메신저에 반드시 있는 사용자 등록이나 친구 추가 기능을 없애고 휴대전화 번호 기반으로 동작하며, 상태 정보(Presence)를 없애면서 상대방 상태에 따라 IM 혹은 SMS로 적절히 변환되어 전달되는 것이 주요 특징이다. 이를 사용자들을 통해 다시 검증해 본 결과 사용자들이 무척 쉽게 받아들이는 것을 발견하였다.

  • In the field of user interface design for interactive product, it is becoming more important than ever to understand emotional quality and its characteristics. By a series of experiments on emotional quality of user interface, this paper aimed to develope a systematic approach to investigating emotional quality. First, a emotional quality framework that consists of 6 dimensions (Usefulness, Easy of Use, Aesthetics, Stimulation, Identification, and Harmony) and 18 elements was developed through two experiments that users and UI expert participated in. Second, by conducting a user survey based on the emotional quality framework, it was illustrated how various emotional qualities of interactive product can be evaluated and what effects they have on overall satisfaction of the product. Finally, this paper analyzed the relative importance of emotional quality dimensions and the contextual factors that change emotional quality, and provided basic knowledge related to the construction of emotional quality for the succeeding studies.

  • Objective: We proposed an effective 3D menu manipulation alternative with a usability test. This was performed in a 3D environment with 3D menu and control manipulation methods. Background: As 3D stereoscopic displays became generalized, various 3D applications were being used not just movies, games, but also mobile contents and advertisements. However, when a user interface was designed in a 3D environment, it was lacked that a clear standard and result of an efficiency and usability as like a 2D environment. Method: We implemented 9 kinds of 3D menu types based on 3D menu hierarchies, menu layouts and dimensions. And we extracted 3 representative control types in a 3D environment. We performed usability evaluation with full factorial design for 27 menu alternatives with 2 types of menu manipulation tasks. In this condition, we measured the performance time, subjective discomfort and eye-fatigue. Results: A control type had the significant effect, and the effect of menu types had the different result depending on given tasks. Conclusion: This experiment showed the interaction of menu and control types depended on 3D menu manipulation tasks were significant in a 3D user interface design. Therefore, as a purpose of a 3D menu manipulation task, 3D menu types and control types were should be considered. Application: We supposed this result was should be applied in a 3D menu contents design.

  • The deVelopment of technologies changes the thinking of people and the ways of IMngs. The software developers as well as users are now aware of the importance of graphic user interface design, and the usage of graphic elements is getting rrore and more easier due to the technological improvements based on the windows system(Microsoft). For these reasons, people who engaged in software developments do much more efforts to get user-oentered design solutions, in other words, the usability improvements. And the interdisciplinary projects teams which consist of experts of various fields are increasing in number. But, the lack of understanding on software developments and the proceeding of design work without the consideration of entire process of a project make interface design work difficult. For exampIe, some engineers often think designers as persons who decorate their products in the final stage. In this thesis, through the investigation of user interface design and software development process, the frarnework of effective team projects is proposed. The main purposes of this thesis are to define the work area and position of designers and to propose the interface design process for the cooperative software development projects within the interdiociplinary teams.
