The process of design in software engineering is a complex one. Decisions made in the design stage have far reaching, and sometimes devastating, effects on subsequent development work. Adopting a user-centred approach to system development adds a further layer of complexity which must, in turn, be addressed. There is considerable experience at the University of Hertfordshire of developing novel human-computer systems through user-centred design. This experience provides a strong focus for our interests in enhancing the quality of the development process by integrating formal methods with the less formal techniques currently used.


Submitted for presentation at the Workshop on Research Issues in the Intersection Between Software Engineering and Human-Computer Interaction, held before the 16th International Conference on Software Engineering, Sorrento, 1994.
