Abstract Designers use their skillset to develop usable and aesthetically pleasing products that are effective at addressing users’ needs. Among the available product design approaches, User-Centred Design (UCD) is the prevailing one, as it focuses on optimising the product around the users' abilities, requirements and preferences, rather than requiring them to change their behaviour to accommodate it. By design UCS is an iterative process, thus designers often struggle to deal with the continuous management and usability testing of the designed mockups. After each iteration, designers need not only to revise their mockups based on the findings and insights emerging from user testing, but also to centrally organise them so as to manage new series of usability tests that will assess the new designs. This is a resource-consuming process for design teams and project managers. This thesis presents Uspector, a web platform that aims to accommodate the needs of designers, practitioners and evaluators during the iterative user-interface design process of a product. In particular, through Uspector: (i) designers can organise their creative content in projects of screens, with every screen consisting of a set of variations, and they can keep track of their evolution over time; (ii) practitioners can efficiently organise and conduct usability experiments using the Heuristic Evaluation methodology in order to uncover possible usability issues of designs; and (iii) evaluators can be supported while inspecting designs for errors. Uspector has been tested in a case study of iterative design. The case study has confirmed that the platform could eventually assist designers to centralise and organise their creative content, uncover possible usability issues by conducting multiple low-cost and rapid usability tests, as well as inspect the evolution of their work through Uspector's version control system.
