Best practices in retail inventory availability

Greetings -

I'm on a quest for competitive/best practice research on making physical
store inventory visible on retail sites. Any pointers or opinions on
sites that are doing this particularly well?

RE: Usabililty In The Home

Wow! Thanks everyone! I was also able to find a lot of references to
past research, especially related to designing for people with
disabilities. (...and I've added Kitchen Stories to my Netflix queue)
:)

I think I may have misrepresented myself a little in my initial post.
What I really want to know is if their are any professionals on this
list or that any of you know, that do this sort of consulting? I would
expect Interaction Designers to work with contractors, builders and
architects to design more useful home environments.

Usability in the home

Is anyone out there working on usability in the home? I'm especially
interested in usable kitchens. I have yet to encounter one. I seem to
find a lot of work surrounding 2 dimensional interaction...what about 3
dimensional interaction with the environment? There is a lot of support
for office workspace ergonomics but what about domestic workspace
environments?

Re: Agile User-Centered Design

First let may say that this whole discussion sparked by the Beck/Cooper
debate has been *really* fascinating.

What I thought was ironic about the discussion was that in some ways, Kent
came off more as thinking like a designer than Cooper did. Specifically,
central to XP is that it's an iterative process. This is a large part of
what I learned in Architecture school; develop a design by evolving it in
iterative passes.

Agile User-Centered Design

Using [ID Discuss] Cooper Vs. Beck, as a springboard...

I'm in a development environment where an agile methodology is
being practiced. There is considerable interest in the
methodology; both in terms of how it differs from what was done
in the past, and can it be successful moving forward. The
company has relied in the past on outside agencies to provide a
user-centered design methodology.

The current project is kind of a blend of the two, agile and
ucd. However, the outside agency, the ucd practitioners are no
longer on the project and we've really just begun the pilot
development.

Cooper Vs. Beck

I'm not sure if this article has been discussed here before, but I would
very much like to hear your opinions on
http://www.fawcette.com/interviews/beck_cooper/ (see also
http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?CooperVsBeck).

I'm studying interaction design with a focus on IA, while my husband is an
outspoken proponent of agile software development methods.

FW: ADMIN: Topics (was RE: Issues raised at London meet)

hey there folks,

sorry I didn't jump on this earlier today. I should have. The topics that
david raised are all good ones.
If the topics were meant to be specific to the londoners I suggest that the
people who led the london discussion have another less formal face 2 face as
follow up for IxDers who are interested in meeting again in London to talk
about those issues.

If the topic was meant for a wider international discussion, this list is
not the appropriate place for this discussion.
