Main Page Usability
USABILITY is the ease of use and learnability of a human-made object such as a tool or device. In software engineering , USABILITY is the degree to which a software can be used by specified consumers to achieve quantified objectives with effectiveness, efficiency, and satisfaction in a quantified context of use. The object of use can be a software application , website , book , tool , machine , process, vehicle , or anything a human interacts with. A usability study may be conducted as a primary job function by a usability analyst or as a secondary job function by designers , technical writers , marketing personnel, and others. It is widely used in consumer electronics , communication , and knowledge transfer objects (such as a cookbook, a document or online help ) and mechanical objects such as a door handle or a hammer.

Tool
A TOOL is any physical item that can be used to achieve a goal , especially if the item is not consumed in the process. Tool use by humans dates back millions of years, and other animals are also known to employ simple tools. Tools that are used in particular fields or activities may have different designations such as "instrument", "utensil", "implement", "machine", "device," or "apparatus". The set of tools needed to achieve a goal is "equipment". The knowledge of constructing, obtaining and using tools is technology .

Screwdriver
A SCREWDRIVER is a tool , manual or powered, for turning (driving or removing) screws . A typical simple screwdriver has a handle and a shaft, and a tip that the user inserts into the screw head to turn it. The shaft is usually made of tough steel to resist bending or twisting. The tip may be hardened to resist wear, treated with a dark tip coating for improved visual contrast between tip and screw—or ridged or treated for additional 'grip'. Handles are typically wood, metal, or plastic and usually hexagonal, square, or oval in cross-section to improve grip and prevent the tool from rolling when set down. Some manual screwdrivers have interchangeable tips that fit into a socket on the end of the shaft and are held in mechanically or magnetically. These often have a hollow handle that contains various types and sizes of tips, and a reversible ratchet action that allows multiple full turns without repositioning the tip or the user's hand. A screwdriver is classified by its tip, which is shaped to fit the driving surfaces—slots, grooves, recesses, etc.—on the corresponding screw head. Proper use requires that the screwdriver's tip engage the head of a screw of the same size and type designation as the screwdriver tip. Screwdriver

Software Application
An APPLICATION PROGRAM (APP or APPLICATION for short) is a computer program designed to perform a group of coordinated functions, tasks, or activities for the benefit of the user. Examples of an application include a word processor , a spreadsheet , an accounting application , a web browser , a media player , an aeronautical flight simulator , a console game or a photo editor . The collective noun APPLICATION SOFTWARE refers to all applications collectively. This contrasts with system software , which is mainly involved with running the computer. Applications may be bundled with the computer and its system software or published separately, and may be coded as proprietary , open-source or university projects. Apps built for mobile platforms are called mobile apps .

Book
A BOOK is a set of sheets of paper , parchment , or similar materials that are fastened together to hinge at one side. A single sheet within a book is a leaf , and each side of a leaf is a page . Writing or images can be printed or drawn on a book's pages. An electronic image that is formatted to resemble a book on a computer screen, smartphone or e-reader device is known as an electronic book or e-book . The term "books" may also refer to a body of works of literature , or a main division of literature (e.g., children\'s literature ) . In library and information science , a book is called a monograph , to distinguish it from serial periodicals such as magazines , journals , or newspapers . In novels and sometimes other types of books (for example, biographies), a book may be divided into several large sections, also called books ( Book 1, Book 2, Book 3, and so on). An avid reader or collector of books or a book lover is a bibliophile or colloquially, "bookworm". A shop where books are bought and sold is a bookshop or bookstore. Books are also sold in some department stores, drugstores and newspaper vendors. Books can also be borrowed from libraries . Google has estimated that as of 2010, approximately 130,000,000 distinct titles had been published. In some wealthier nations, the sale of printed books has decreased because of the use of e-books , though sales of e-books declined in the first half of 2015

Machine
A MACHINE is a tool containing one or more parts that transforms energy . Machines are usually powered by chemical, thermal , or electrical means, and are often motorized . Historically, a power tool also required moving parts to classify as a machine. However, the advent of electronics has led to the development of power tools without moving parts that are considered machines. A simple machine is a device that simply transforms the direction or magnitude of a force , but a large number of more complex machines exist. Examples include vehicles , electronic systems , molecular machines , computers , television , and radio .

Designer
A DESIGNER is a person who designs . More formally, a designer is an agent that "specifies the structural properties of a design object ". In practice, anyone who creates tangible or intangible objects, products, processes, laws, games, graphics, services, and experiences is referred to as a designer. Designer cuckoo clock by Pascal Tarabay. Classically, the main area of design was only architecture , which were understood as the major arts. The design of clothing , furniture , and other common artifacts were left mostly to tradition or artisans specializing in hand making them. Design is a part of the communication arts , design is something you plan to create, it communicates to the viewer or user a visual and emotional message to change or guide through an emotional connection with a product or service enhancing their experience of the product or brand With the increasing complexity in industrial design of today’s society, and due to the needs of mass production where more time is usually associated with more cost, the production methods became more complex and with them, the way designs and their production is created. The classical areas are now subdivided into smaller and more specialized domains of design (landscape design, urban design, exterior design, interior design, industrial design, furniture design, cloth design, and much more) according to the product designed or perhaps its means of production

Technical Writer
A TECHNICAL WRITER is a professional writer who produces technical documentation that helps people understand and use a product or service. This documentation includes online help , manuals (system, end-user, training), white papers , design specifications , project plans, test plans, business correspondence, etc. With the rise of e-learning, technical writers are also charged with creating online training for their audience of learners. Technical writers explain technologies, processes, and products in many formats, including print, online, and other electronic means. Kurt Vonnegut described technical writers as: ...trained to reveal almost nothing about themselves in their writing. This makes them freaks in the world of writers, since almost all of the other ink-stained wretches in that world reveal a lot about themselves to the reader. Engineers, scientists, and other professionals may also produce technical writing , but often hand it off to a professional technical writer for developmental editing , proofreading , editing, formatting, and delivery to their audiences
