Participatory heuristic evaluation.

Participatory Heuristic Evaluation (PHE) is an extension of the traditional Heuristic Evaluation where a number of design guidelines are applied to a design or prototype by usability experts. PHE uses the same techniques, however users are included as ‘work-domain expert inspectors’. Extra heuristics are added to include the user experience. In addition to the 13 heuristics identified in heuristic evaluation, Participatory Heuristic Evaluation facilitates the checking of

  •     task flow
  •     suitability of design to task
  •     suitability of design to user
  •     quality of work produced
