Excellent UX for sustainable
Particle Foam Production
E.HMI Connect / Erlenbach GmbH
Challenge and Use
Erlenbach GmbH is an international manufacturer of processing equipment for particle foam materials. Particle foam parts find their main applications in packaging, technical parts in the automotive sector, and thermal insulation. The project's challenge was to develop a modular and scalable interface that could be adapted to the customer's entire portfolio of machines while meeting the diverse needs of all users.
Clear and Smart
For E.HMI Connect, we developed a comprehensive and flexible design system. Visualizations of the most important key figures keep users informed of the machines' status and production progress. Interactive illustrations make complex processes understandable and tangible. Machine learning and AI-supported features assist employees with analysis and production optimization.
Focus on Users
From the outset, we identified all requirements by surveying user groups and repeatedly validated them throughout the project using prototypes and user tests. The result is a user-centered interface that reduces complexity and enables users to quickly familiarize themselves with the software. Shorter training times lead to fewer operating errors and downtimes. Additionally, operators don't need to make unnecessary trips around the machine hall, as the software is responsive on different panel sizes and smart devices.
