Preparing Usability Supporting Architectural Patterns for Industrial Use
Usability supporting architectural patterns (USAPs) have been shown to provide developers with useful guidance for producing a software architecture design that supports usability in a laboratory setting [7]. In close collaboration between researchers and software developers in the real world, the concepts were proven useful [2]. However, this process does not scale to industrial development efforts. In particular, development teams need to be able to use USAPs while being distributed world-wide. USAPs also must support legacy or already partially-designed architectures, and when using multiple USAPs there could be a potentially overwhelming amount of information given to the software architects. In this paper, we describe the restructuring of USAPs using a pattern language to simplify the development and use of multiple USAPs. We also describe a delivery mechanism that is suitable for industrial-scale adoption of USAPs. The delivery mechanism involves organizing responsibilities into...
