Control concept and usability


The haptics of a software application always had a major influence on the satisfaction of the user with their work environment. However, two items have significantly changed during the last few years: the freedom of design in the area of the usability has increased significantly due to the current development technologies and the use of the same application across different terminals has not occurred in the same manner in the past. A major success factor of each application is therefore a coherent control concept with a consistent user control. The requirements for a touchscreen of the user interface are different from those of a terminal, PC or mobile terminal. A GUI (Graphic User Interface) is not required at some places because the application must be run completely automatic. These factors must all be considered during development.

The users that interact with the GUIs must be able to use it intuitively. The user must see at a glance what the applications requires it to do and which steps must be performed. An employee who works at a machine has no time to understand the application. For this user, the usage quality and efficiency during the interaction with the system has highest priority. Depending on the task area, only those functions relevant for the employee will be displayed. Avoiding clicks saves time and therefore money.

A strong emphasis on haptics was placed on MES CAT from the start. The user interface of MES CAT can be configured very flexibly and therefore can be adapted to the requirements of the user and the output media.
