DESCRIPTION

I was responsible for crafting the UX and design of Verusen’s duplicate groups interface. Duplicate groups help the customers harmonize their inventory data by identifying the same materials across facilities in their organization.

The UX included determining the customers’ exact workflow and understanding how they identify duplicate materials. The UI needed to accommodate each piece of data to help provide accurate information for the most educated decision upon every material.

STEP ONE:

Wireframes & Prototype

Early stages of design concepts for duplicate groups displayed and highlighted differences within a material description making it easier for the users to identify duplicate materials.

Uncertainty of data display, functionality, and UI design led to the beginning of building out a user research testing plan to answer some major questions around supply chain's duplicate parts.

A basic, clickable prototype was built based off of general feedback from stakeholders, engineers, data scientists, and project managers.

This prototype supported a series of different tasks and goals that was part of a user testing scenario in order to fully understand users' workflows to determine duplicate materials.

STEP TWO:

User Testing & Analysis

Once the prototype was built, I wrote out a testing session scenario with tasks we wanted our users to walk through and complete. These tasks were specific to identifying duplicates which would verify process, UI design, and interaction and functionality.

I facilitated several user testing sessions with our users across different organizations. Each user was guided through each task and they either completed it with the desired result or struggled through figuring it out.

After testing was complete, we analyzed the data across each user test session to best pinpoint problem areas, what worked best, and how to provide the best solution.

STEP THREE:

Process Mapping

In order to nail down workflows and process of duplicates, I mapped out user flows of how they would navigate through the duplicate UI.

STEP FOUR:

Visual Design & Interaction

The final stages were applying the full visual design to the duplicate group UI.

Along with the high fidelity mockups, I incorporated interaction design into the page utilizing UXPin's prototyping capabilities to demonstrate how the UI should work for engineers.
