consistency inspection

a quality control technique for evaluating and improving a user interface. The interface is methodically reviewed for consistency in design, both within a screen and between screens, in graphics (color, typography, layout, icons), text (tone, style, spelling), and interaction (consistency of task steps and command names). Of course, consistency shouldn’t be carried too far: things that need to be distinguished should be distinct.
