P1 would have been this kind if the user had found the solution fast. Problems versus observations. It often happens that one user gets stuck on a certain problem, while another user soon finds the solution. Is the problem then a task failure? The answer is that severity is not a classification of the usability problems, but of the observations (occurrences) of the problems. Problem P1, for instance, might be observed twice. When user A encountered it, it was a task failure; when user B encountered it, it was a minor problem.

When developing a new system, we have a problem because we have no suitable users yet. Some HCI specialists run another usability test with the same users a few days later. This will, to some extent, show how easy the system is to remember. In a typical stressed project, however, this is rarely done. e) Subjective satisfaction. Task time measurement is not suited for this. Experience shows that there is little correlation between task time and the user’s subjective satisfaction with the system.

Developers don’t know how to achieve usability and they fear it is too costly.
