    Abstract

    To ensure software is usable, usability evaluations are commonly performed. However, most evaluations are individually performed, and few methods integrate individual usability evaluations. In our research, we propose a method to automatically integrate various types of usability evaluations. Our method adds functions to record the operation histories of the target software. This information is then used to perform individual usability evaluations focusing on efficiency, errors, and learnability. Individual evaluations are then integrated to identify usability problems.
