Abstract:


This study is aimed for developing a survey-based mathematical model specifically for measuring the timeliness of handheld applications usage. This study is designed to achieve five major objectives: identifying the elements for measuring timeliness, analyzing contributed factors of timeliness measures, developing a model for measuring timeliness, constructing formulas for measuring timeliness as well as prioritizing the overall timeliness of handheld application usage. As a result, a mathematical model namely Timeliness Measurement Model (TMM) is developed in which outlined thirteen timeliness measures in three different hierarchy levels of metrics, attributes and criterions. This model can be used for analyzing the timeliness of handheld application usage.
