The User-centered design (UCD) process outlines the phases throughout a design and development life-cycle all while focusing on gaining a deep understanding of who will be using the product. The international standard 13407  is the basis for many UCD methodologies. It’s important to note that the UCD process does not specify exact methods for each phase.
