The four phases of the design approach and the corresponding work packages

The four phases of the design approach and the corresponding work packages


In user-centered design, the test persons (henceforth participants) and their needs are the driving force for the development of the technology. The participants are recruited solely on a voluntary basis which is secured by the consent forms.
As depicted in figure above, the project consists of four phases which are repeated three times.

1. ANALYSIS
- during the first phase the project is collecting requirements for the project meaning that, for instance, the project partners responsible for the contact with the participants will select participants and by different means collect the technical requirements based on the needs of the participants. 

2. IMPLEMENTATION
- during the second phase the technical requirements are implemented.

3. TESTING
- during the next phase the technology will be installed so that the participants have access to it and can try it out. Goal of testing is to verify the technology is feasible, usable and that the technology is intuitively accessible for the participants. 

4. EVALUATION
- in the final phase the test results are evaluated and fed into the new iteration.
