Abstract: This paper describes and discusses a knowledge-based user interface evaluation tool, based on the critiquing paradigm. The tool uses knowledge acquired from experts and from collections of guidelines to evaluate a formal description of a user interface design, generating comments as well as suggesting improvements. After describing the system architecture and reporting some experiences, the paper focuses on the possibility of incorporating a knowledge-based design tool in a User Interface Management System (UIMS), making it possible to give constructive advice to the designer as well as comments. We report some preliminary results from a project aimed at this integration.
