It specifically involves a set of expert evaluators examining a user interface to find Usability Problems within an interface design and judge its compliance with recognized usability principles, known as the “Heuristics.”

Heuristic Evaluation is also a good choice to use as Usability Evaluation Method to use a a pre-cursor to a Usability Testing Study as it is a widely used methodology for finding Usability Problems within an interface design.
