Chapter 9. Interface Design Standards > The Value of Design Standards

The Value of Design Standards

Design standards save development time. For example, instead of developers spending hours reinventing design decisions, like whether to call a button Enter or OK and where to place this button, they can just refer to the design standards. This also ensures that a team of developers follows the same guidelines and makes the application or Web pages consistent.

A design standard also saves development time by supporting the creation of reusable code. For example, if you define a single way for a search and list page to work, you can create reusable code to support that design. The application of that page type then simply requires making changes to the base code. This also reduces the need for quality assurance because the reusable code has already been debugged.
