2011 (English)In: 7th annual Student Interaction Design Research Conference (SIDeR) on Engaging Interaction in Design, Lyngby, Denmark, April 14-15, 2011., 2011, 4- p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents a touch screen GUI (Graphical User Interface) redesign and palm-sized assistive mobile device as a tool for shaft alignment procedures, in heavy industry. It is suggested that by utilizing these tools, the connection between the user and the physical environment enables increased efficiency in the overall alignment workflow.Prototypes, contextual inquiry, and interviews were used as evaluation tools in a typical industrial environment. The results demonstrated in this paper propose that these solutions provide the user with real time adjustment feedback. It contributes further insights that by adopting these solutions, multiple users could work together in complex scenarios, allowing for increased productivity and decreased downtime in production.
