Usability is the extent to which users can access the functionality of a system with effectiveness, efficiency, and satisfaction to achieve specific goals. Employing user-centered design processes helps ensure that products or systems are highly usable and meet users' needs.
Usability focuses on designing a product that is effective, efficient, and satisfies the users needs, achieving specified goals in a particular environment. Usability usually refers to software but is relevant to any product.
