As we know, from a user’s point of view, every requirement comprises a series of related aspects and critical factors defining, among others, the interface usability –solution or service–, which includes countless characteristics and allows an interface to be sufficiently attractive, functional and comfortable to provide a very gratifying user experience.
To obtain large volumes of information –used to achieve success in the end result–, it is necessary to understand the scope of a requirement, as well as to deploy an appropriate research approach. Knowing what to do and how to use the information is part of the required skills of those who aim their professional approach at understanding –and often decoding– the secrets of what seems to be a simple functional requirement from users.
The information obtained as part of the research step will help the User Experience Designer (UX Designer) to structure, classify and organize –with a comprehensive knowledge of the facts, of course– the representation of all topics and contents, in both substance and form, based on the requirement, without losing sight at all of the aspects covering the need of users, customers and business.
For this purpose, you will be able to make use of a broad range of techniques and related tools, such as flow diagrams, architecture maps, navigation maps, etc. In addition, the application of such techniques and tools, according to different logical criteria of the UX designer, will provide structured schemes of use and allow developing coherent solution proposals, as mentioned above, in accordance with the requirements, needs, and expectations of users.
