This paper discusses and illustrates work in progress on the MeMo workbench for early model-based usability evaluation of interface designs. Characteristic features of the workbench include (a) the prediction of errors via rules that refer to user attributes; and (b) the automatic generation of methods for performing specific tasks and for recovering from errors.
