Production process visualization

Anastasia Surikova Supervisor: Zdeněk Míkovec Master thesis 2022
People who work in the manufacturing industry have to deal with a large amount of stress daily. Late material delivery, violation of a product deadline, or inevitable human factor could be possible reasons behind this stress. This thesis aims to design a tool that supports the manufacturing process and eliminates workers' stress in the industry using user-centered design techniques and production process visualization. The design process considers an existing optimization algorithm for schedule creation and focuses only on designing the algorithm's output in a user-friendly way. This thesis describes qualitative research with the target field representatives and the creation of the high-fidelity prototype based on research findings. Then, the conducted usability tests of the prototype with the target user group and the subsequent implementation with mocked backend are described.
