User interface for industrial machines from the manufacturer KraussMaffei Extrusion GmbH, which is part of the KraussMaffei Group, one of the world's leading manufacturers of machinery and systems for extrusion and recycling of plastic and rubber products. The company's portfolio covers all technologies in injection moulding, extrusion and reaction processing.
The aim of the project was to simplify and harmonize the complex and heterogeneous manifestations of the UI. A flexible standard was developed which in future can also be transferred to other business segments. The project was developed in a user-centered manner. Context analyses and user and expert surveys were used to identify the requirements, and the new way of operation was tested with prototypes. The focus is on the depiction of the most important figures and notifications of the system. Interactive illustrations, favorites pages and workflows help the user to manage complex processes. The result is a holistically optimized user experience, combined with a high-quality graphical design. The design is clearly structured and functional. It was developed to be responsive and can be used on various monitor sizes and smart devices. It reflects key aspects of the corporate design and contributes to a consistent brand image.
