The purpose of this study is to develop the usability evaluation contents based on the needs of different stakeholder's related to the usability of the product, and to derive the design direction and apply it as the evaluation standard by applying the product design based on the results. I created a stakeholder map for a fire detector product and identified stakeholders related to usability. Based on 3 factors(Physical, cognitive, emotional) of the usability evaluation, I conducted survey on the building users and the building managers who have different requirements. There are 12 directions (ease of installation, durability, maintainability, additional functionality, effectiveness, attractiveness, visibility, consistency of information, environmental harmony, consistency, Image suitability, reliability). Through weighted analysis of three usability evaluation factors, I found factors were ranked in the same order of importance, but they were different in importance figure. Based on the results of the survey, overall product usability aspects were improved but effectiveness and environmental coordination aspects needed to be improved.
