The ease of use becomes one of the most important factors that are seen with great interest from industrial organizations, designers, and takes a great deal of research and studies. It has become one of the basic pillars upon which to build the design and development policies, so as to reach the distinct relationship between the user and the product. This interest has increased as a result of the enormous technological development, the variety of industrial products and strong competition between companies to get a larger percentage of sales in the international markets, especially as we are in the era of globalization and open markets, which leads to increase the number of users, and therefore the need for product can be used easily to match different cognitive, cultural, social, and educational.... users' levels worldwide.
