Objectives and Approach

The QLIS project directly addresses quality-of-life issues that must be taken into account if the European IT industry is to successfully meet the competitive requirements of the 1990s.

The QLIS project will concentrate on:

The main project objectives are to:

The software scenario support tool will provide the European IT industry with a means for forecasting the quality-of-life implications of their IT products prior to the actual diffusion of these in the marketplace. The results of such scenarios will be integrated into the IT product design and development cycle.

The results of the QLIS project will help to ensure that the development and application of advanced IT is used to enhance the quality of life of individuals in the areas mentioned above. This will be useful for the variety of decision-makers concerned with the long-term implications of IT, and especially useful for agents responsible for designing and diffusing new IT products and for users and specialists responsible for designing and managing new IT-in-use systems. The QLIS project will therefore directly support the major industrial partners in their development of new products.
