HMI Design and Develoment

The project involved taking an internal tool developed informally by engineering teams and re-purposing it to make it user friendly with a view to it being a customer facing tool. Using knowledge elicitation techniques and wire-framing tools, the functionality of the original tool was assessed and reconfigured to provide a tool that is user oriented and much easier to use.

Barry Kirby was embedded in the Software design team at the customer site in South Wales for 6 months. Barry was talked with bringing his experience in rapid HMI development processes to optimise the Scout SV interface. Barry was also responsible for developing specific areas of HMI, with a particular focus on Situational Awareness.
