The following paper presents results from a longitudinal study on the use of ICT for B2B-related business processes in large Swiss companies. In an empirical survey , 68 questionnaires were personally collected from procurement heads and subsequently analysed. The findings show that reduction of purchase prices is the top priority when goal-setting in(More)
Adaptive user interfaces are commonly used for providing different layouts and information according to the current context-of-use. However, the complexity and heterogeneity of potential users, platforms and environments lead to a combinatorial explosion of variants, making it almost impossible to foresee all potential results of adaptations at design time.(More)
In this paper we describe an approach to efficiently evaluate the usability of an interactive application that has been realized to support various platforms and modalities. Therefore we combine our Multi-Access Service Platform (MASP), a model-based runtime environment to offer multimodal user interfaces with the MeMo workbench which is a tool supporting(More)
Cognitive modeling as a method has proven successful at reproducing and explaining human intelligent behavior in specific laboratory situations, but still struggles to produce more general intelligent capabilities. A promising strategy to address this weakness is the addition of large semantic resources to cognitive architectures. We are investigating the(More)
Adaptive user interfaces (UI) offer the opportunity to adapt to changes in the context, but this also poses the challenge of evaluating the usability of many different versions of the resulting UI. Consequently, usability evaluations tend to become very complex and time-consuming. We describe an approach that combines model-based usability evaluation with(More)
With the move to ubiquitous computing, user interfaces (UI) are no longer bound to specific devices. While this problem can be tackled using the model-based UI development (MBUID) process, the usability of the device-specific interfaces is still an open question. We are presenting a combined system that integrates MBUID with a cognitive modeling framework(More)
