Human-centered design (HCD) is one possible approach to enhancing usability, and it is important to take the HCD method to the development process. However, there is a realistic problem with insufficient resource such as manpower and time for the HCD method. Then, in order to practice HCD and to use know-how concerning the usability available more easily, the template defined of nine basic screens based on current findings was made. As a result, system engineers and developers came to be able to develop systems with a certain level of usability by using the templates, and that leads to the efficiency of the systems development and the improvement of the design quality.
