Chapter 3 Problem 5
Consider reports you might receive at work (e.g., budgets or inventory reports) or at a university (e.g., grade reports or transcripts). Evaluate the usability of these reports in terms of speed, accuracy, and satisfaction. What could be done to improve the usability of these outputs?
Answer: I consider Inventory reports. To improve the reports in terms of speed, accuracy and satisfaction it needs proper planning, design and analysis. Reports should produce daily to keep work faster and to support the organization. If some reports cannot get it done faster online, it can be done by hand, and sometime it works faster than online. All the repots should be handy all the time when needed. Technically sometimes you can lose all your work, but if its hand it can be fast and satisfy your needs.
