Model driven engineering provides solutions to create user interfaces (UI), especially in the case of complex UI such as adaptable UI. However, they suffer from the poor quality of the generated UIs. This paper addresses this drawback by integrating aesthetics and usability study steps in a model driven development process. This proposal is based on an experiment, which shows that aesthetics improves the user’s evaluation only at the mere exposure stage. Further, usability improves the users’ evaluation only after some use experience.
