In this paper we present a new method for usability evaluation. The method, Usability Case, defines usability of a particular system by a documented chain of inference including claims, arguments and evidence. With the help of this structure, repeated measurements can be accumulated and integrated. Usability Case is a tool for implementing usability in design, striving for downstream utility of usability evaluations. It is also a tool for monitoring human factors engineering in a complex design process.
