User interface design of a software suite for systems for 3D printing of metal components
The functionality ranges from order management, logistics, production preparation through production monitoring to follow-up work. The software is used in a wide variety of utilization scenarios on multi-touch panels, PCs and mobile devices and has a flexible structure. The modular architecture allows the functional scope to be customized to the tasks and user groups and, if required, extended. The complete production process can be supported by rapid changing of apps, with the status of all system components being monitored at all times. User operation is structured workflow-oriented and can be understood intuitively. The interface has a clear structure and each app is color-coded. Construction process progress and all key figures are presented in a form that is easy to understand. The functionality can be customized user-specifically and extended through widgets.
