Abstract

Aligning generic methodologies in human-centered design with the very specific demands of individual software projects presents a challenge during project planning and execution. Generally discussed in isolation of a particular context, many design process theories and methods need to be tailored to fit particular project needs. This work presents a classification schema to support in the project-specific adaptation of design processes. Based on design project observations, we identify four major project types ‘Usability’, ‘Capability’, ‘Extension’, and ‘Innovation’. The distinct process characteristics and commonalities for each category are discussed, qualifying the schema to support in the design project planning process.

Keywords: design planning, process improvement, user-centered design, process adaptation
