comment Is there any research on mitigating the effects of using a non-representative user group on measuring perceived usability?
@Matt, I really don't know any other way to find the error margin. I think this is an interesting question and I hope other will contribute with other advices...

comment Better way to implement a dynamic hierarchy
I don't have a concrete suggestion at this moment, but I would like to point out that UX is not only about the final solution, it's about how you get there. Now, this sounds like a complex task - handling tens of thousands of items. My suggestion is that you talk to the users and that you do so with two things on your mind: 1) Figure out how they work, what they think of, what they consider to be their main focus etc. 2) See if anyone has a suggestion to this. You can talk to them one by one or you can invite 3-5 users to a workshop where you try to work out some solution together.

comment Disabled submit button on form vs allow submit then show errors?
As @Marjan says: Visualize the required the fields directly. You can also use a discrete visualization at first (eg. the (*) mark), and then use a clearer visualization (eg. a bold, red border frame) if the user tries to submit an uncompleted form. This should not replace the error message, but be used in addition to the error message.

I think QDF is more like "Usability Engineering" than "User Centered Design". That Take a look at the other article that supports the dev.cut argument: "Usability Engineering Approach to Software Quality", M. W. Scerbo (1991): asq.org/qic/display-item/?item=9732
