Managing ship arrivals in a port: The Design Process of Interactive Application Software Using Metaphors and User Participation
University of Hamburg, Germany
The lecture describes the path from the task-oriented analysis of ship traffic management in the Port of Hamburg to the design and realisation of a touch table application “Sounding Table”. The focus is on supporting the arrival and departure of large ships in the Port of Hamburg. This example shows how we narrowed the classical gap between the domain-oriented analysis of the application area and the design of the user model. We will outline how design metaphors and user participation have a direct influence both on the usability and on the architecture of the software.
