Software quality is more than code, it expands beyond the code, the noticeable aspects for the user must be considered. In order to capture these aspects one can look towards the area of Interaction Design, which is studied within the discipline of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). To apply the concepts of this discipline, procedures must be respected, thus forming a process. When considering software quality, one must consider processes it is the use of metrics. In this context, this paper explores a process of design interaction oriented by metrics. Supported by a literature review and methodology, the process is defined supporting this underlying argument. A questionnaire targeted with knowing in the field will reveal results aimed at validating and improving the proposed process.
