The analysis process is concerned with evaluating the web as to
it's usability and efficiency. At this stage in the development
of the ICS web, no actual web exists, and this process may have
to be revisited at a later stage.
There are certain elements of the analysis process, however, which
do apply at this stage. These are;
- Does the audience for the web actually exist and do they
actually have Web access?
The audience analysis gives conclusive
evidence that the audience exists, and that the majority of them
do have Web access.
- Has this web already been created by another party?
This web is specific to the Department of Informatics, University
of Lund, and if this web had already been created by another party,
I would have no project. :-) Other university departmental webs
exist, which I have used in my research.
- Are the purpose, objective and specifications statements
The specification is a direct translation
of the objective, which is a direct
translation of the purpose. Hyperlinks
from one component to the translated equivalent, explicate this.
- Is the domain information accurate and reliable?
The accuracy of the domain information is beyond the scope
of this web - that is left to the appropriate administrative system
within the ICS department. The timeliness of the online version
of that information is a concern, however. Maintainers must make
checks to make sure the on-line version is the most up-to-date.
- Does it meet the user needs? One
method of verifying this is to set up a survey for user feedback.
This will now become part of the web specification.
