IMS develops and produces isotope, X-ray and optical measuring systems for use in the metal industry. The company stands for passionate precision, state-of-the-art technologies and solution-oriented top performance. The following project focused on the development of a human machine interface in consideration of the IMS corporate design and the execution of software usability tests.
The content presented has been shortened and does not include the final solution.
Target groups: Who uses the existing software?
How is the software used in everyday life depending on the user?
How can the workflow be optimized?

USABILITY TESTING & DEVELOPMENT
The pictures show the idea phase only. They do not show the final solution.
The user interface is based on the colors of the corporate design, which primarily consists of a blue and orange tone.
To transfer the colors to the user interface, different combinations of color gradients were tested.
On the example image, the background color is a dark blue, while all elements are highlighted in orange when hovering over them.
The user interface design can be modular thanks to a separate page builder. This way, it can be adapted according to the customer's requirements and industrial plant.
Each individual widget can be positioned and adjusted in size on each page.
An external program is used to adapt the user interface to specific customer requirements and systems. In the example image, a side panel is used to place widgets on one side of the HMI. Afterwards, the properties of the widget can be set.
