👨🏼‍💻 Personal Contribution

Because the project was completed to receive my bachelor’s degree, I have no direct teammates. However, I have organized some support for bigger tasks such as the heuristic evaluation, interviews, contextual inquiries, the persona creation or journey mapping.

Evaluation Process

Regarding my process I have combined the Design Thinking method with the double diamond process introduced by the British design council and the Airbus internal triple diamond UX process. 

I have worked close to common standards like ISO 9126, 9241, 9355, 11581, 14915, 25010, 25066, and Nielsen’s heuristics or Tidwell et al.’s design patterns. After the study phase I did user research via, interviews, contextual inquires, a stakeholder analysis, and the heuristic evaluation with my own developed extended heuristic list. In the next step, I defined personas, scenarios and user journey maps. Finally, I have come up with a criteria list which I will present in front of the stakeholders, in this presentation there will be given some examples in a UI prototype as well.
