Defining usability in the development process

Hey there,

I'm just starting a new gig as Usability Engineer. I've been asked to
present a overall development process that includes usability (yay!). For
example, this is where I come in, this is what I do, this is when the html
guy is in, here is where coding starts, etc etc. I have definite ideas about
this myself, but I would also love to see some thoughts as well. If anyone
has a document to share that I could use in brainstorming, that would be
really helpful. Please CC me at pixelmech at gee mail dot com.
