Industrial washing machine interface

Krebe-Tippo produces large industrial washing machines. My task was to design the touch-screen interface UX for such a machine and work with the visual designer to deliver final designs.

I insisted on and conducted user research to better understand users and the product. I then delivered a UX concept including flows, information architecture, a clickable dummy and ultimatively hi-fi wireframes for the machine which is in production today.

Client: Krebe-Tippo

Tasks: UX design, User research

Outputs: Concept prototype, Use flow, Information architecture, Clickable prototype

A/C service machine interfaces

This machine is used by mechanics in repair shops to diagnose and fix a car AC system.

The first step was to conduct user research – interviewing actual users at their place of work. To understand the product better we then conducted a workshop with the salespeople.

All this led me to quickly and efficiently produce the first lo-fi user flows and interaction model.

A clickable prototype then enabled good communication with the client and finally hi-fi wireframes and collaboration with the visual designer made sure the UX was being effectively translated into a product.
