How to define heuristics specific to a system ?



We are currently working on complex systems unificating various interfaces. Various modules (physical and interfaces) are interacting together, like in a train, car or plane.

Each module thus have its own goals and dedicated tasks.

To reproduce our analysis and communicate comparable results we would like to develop heuristics grids specific to each sub system, based on Nielsen's and Bastien&Scapin's ones, but including task oriented criterias.

Switching through multiple "primary" phones for testing

Hi All,

I'm a User Experience Designer. While my primary phone is an iPhone 5, I'm curious to really understand the user behaviors consistent with some android devices (perhaps even extend to windows and blackberry as well). I've been able to test various apps on these devices through my company but I know to truly understand what the user goes through, I should adopt an adroid phone as my primary phone for a month and treat it as real users do.

Here's a short survey to help with my Bachelor Thesis. There are about a dozen questions and mainly checkboxes so shouldn't take too long...
