@Jim Yes, I think ergonomic is close to what I'm looking for! Now that you mention it, my "specification" sounds too limited - I think I'm trying to find a word that also suggests efficiency and focus on the task / purpose!

@Jim Yes; I'm looking for a word that would apply to those cases where ease of use is achieved by removing extra cruft - which in turn means the tool is only fit for its specific purpose.

@Jim Thanks for your suggestion! I would, and purpose-built is an interesting choice. However, I think I'm looking for a word that would suggest the ease-of-use aspect. (Purpose built would be great for the space shuttle! ;) )

@Jim Indeed, the word I'm looking for - if it exists - wouldn't be appropriate to describe the space shuttle.
