Keywords: usability; communicability; grid computing applications; semiotic engineering; usability heuristics

Abstract:
Usability is a main attribute of any interactive software system. Its relevance for Grid Computing applications is expected to increase, as the technical knowledge of grid users will gradually decrease. Usability evaluation for Grid Computing applications brings new challenges. A set of specific usability heuristics was defined and validated. The paper presents a Grid Computing communicability study and evaluates the communicability’s impact on applications’ usability.
