Investing in Requirements Analysis

In TaskZ Viewpointz, an article by Deborah J. Mayhew about investing time and money on requirements analysis as part of the usability life cycle.

Even if you have all the right functionality and data, an interface that does not directly support the unique requirements of the application is not usable. Finding out prior to design what the unique requirements are, and designing to support them, is much more cost-effective in the long run than finding out after launch that your design does not meet requirements.
