Usability studies

Risk assessment

Why we do this:

A risk assessment is critical to identify potential hazards, enhance safety, improve usability, comply with regulations, and minimise liability. By conducting a thorough risk assessment, the design team can develop a safer and more effective product, leading to a better user experience and a more successful product launch.

Usability test plan

How we achieve this:

A usability test plan can help verify the effectiveness of safety measures implemented to mitigate potential hazards identified in the risk assessment. By conducting usability testing, the design team can ensure that safety measures are effective and that the product meets safety standards.

Conducting studies

How we achieve this:

This stage involves collecting data on how users interact with the system and their feedback on its usability. The researcher should be prepared to adapt to unforeseen circumstances during this stage, such as technical difficulties or unexpected user behaviour. 

Analysis and reporting

Why we do this

This stage involves analysing both quantitative data, such as task completion time and error rates, and qualitative data, such as user feedback and observations. The researcher should also identify patterns and trends in the data to identify potential usability issues. We then summarise the results of the usability study, including the usability issues identified and recommendations for improvement.

Industrial design

Industrial design involves the creation of products for mass production, typically in commercial or industrial settings. The process of industrial design includes designing the form, function, and features of a product, as well as its aesthetics, usability, and user experience.

In the ideation stage, our designers come up with ideas and concepts for the product, often using sketches or computer-aided design (CAD) software.
