Touch-optimized user interface design for textile machines.

User interface design for textile machines in the field of warp knitting machines, technical textiles and warp preparation. The intuitive and user-oriented operating concept with its modular structure uses a uniform interface for the wide range of machine types. The contents of the production side can be customized to the requirements of user roles or machine properties. The main navigation has a process-oriented structure. The operators are guided through their daily tasks. Functional animations support the interaction. Feature extensions on mobile devices round off the project.
