The project was aimed at defining an interaction model for SDI web portal in order to remotely supervise and control industrial plants and energy networks. BSD team has been involved in various research activities including: field observations, use case analysis, operator task analysis. On the basis of the research phase, the team defined the web portal interaction design, the navigation model, the main interface layouts, the identity components (e.g. widgets, menus, smart cards) and their rules, a coherent visual identity and the responsiveness mechanisms to access the portal from different mobile devices.


The eXPert HMI project, engaged BSD team in specific study and design activities including: context, systems and operator tasks analysis; the development of an interaction and navigation model of the interface; the creation of the main structure and layouts; the design of the individual interface elements and their rules; the creation of a library with simple and complex objects; the definition of the software visual identity consistent with the domain requirements.
