Introducing Usability Testing in the Risk Management Process in Software Development

Lindholm, Christin LU and Höst, Martin LU (2013) Conference Workshop on Software Engineering in Health Care at ICSE, 2013 p.5-11
Abstract
Human beings make errors and that is nothing

that we can avoid completely. We can however lower the risk of

people doing wrong in situations where, for example, medical

devices are used. The overall objective of the research presented

in this paper is to investigate how usability testing can contribute

to software risk management process in the medical device

domain. Experience has been collected from both the risk

management process and usability testing in a development

project of a medical device. It can be concluded that usability

tests can give valuable input to the risk management process.

Usability tests can indicate risks that are not... (More)

Usability tests can indicate risks that are not identified in the risk

management process and render the possibility to verify if risks

with high risk value actually cause the presumed problems (Less)
