User Experience and Team System

User Experience and Team System

Visual Studio 2005

The user education specialist is typically a technical writer who advocates for the user experience constituency in the MSF Team Model. The user education specialist focuses on consumer-focused technical writing which reinforces or enhances product value and helps to realize the product vision. A user education specialist may work on product manuals, on-line Help, operations manuals, maintenance manuals, training manuals, and any other documentation which can be used to enhance the usage and value delivered with the product. User experience architects typically work closely with user education specialists. A good user experience and product design typically leads to a lower workload for the technical writing team. Excessive documentation may be an indicator that the user experience is poor and the writing is compensating for poor overall product design.

The user experience workflow is as follows:

  • Analysis

  • Develop Documentation

  • Establish Project Process

  • Release a Product

Also listed here are links to help the user education specialist adopt the workflow for the MSF Team Model using Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team System.
