Software Architecture that supports Usability (STATUS)


STATUS is an ESPRIT project (IST-2001-32298) financed by the European Comission in its Information Society Technologies Program, Action Line IV.3

The aim of the STATUS project is to study and determine the connections between software architecture and the usability of the resultant software system. The project will explain the characteristics of software architectures that improve software usability. Usability is a key quality attribute in software products. Usability benefits are patent from the viewpoint of both the user organisation (for example, the benefits due to more efficient use of information technologies) and the developer organisation (for example, the extent to which its applications are used).
