Abstract

Usability is multidimensional and defining a model for the assessment of design solutions is challenging, since most features depend of user perceptions. This paper discusses the features of a new usability assessment model based on Fuzzy Logic and presents its application in a case study related with the development of a web portal based on a User Centered Design approach. The output of the proposed assessment model is the Usability Index.
