In this paper we describe a methodology for specifying a user interface application for mobile handset interfaces. This was derived from a design project in which Human Factors International worked together with one of the world’s largest handset manufacturers on supporting the development and documentation of the user interface for one of the major US carriers. The methodology arose as a result of the challenges that the design team faced during the course of the project. Key goals of the resulting tool and process were to be as lightweight as possible, to cater for the different information needs of the various Stakeholders, and to be easy to create and update. The resulting tool was PowerPoint based and divided documentation into high and low level descriptions to meet the needs of both product management stakeholders and the development stakeholders. Overall, the improved documentation creation process and the clearer documentation which results have the ability to significantly accelerate the development process.
