use what you build

a way of evaluating a system by having the designers and programmers actually apply the system in their own work. This is a particularly good approach for finding functional holes and major inefficiencies, and results in great responsiveness to user difficulties. However, it runs the risk of not incorporating the needs of novice users or being blinded to the variable needs of other work environments.
