Prototype design, research, and MVP strategy contributions to IBM PMQ.
IBM Predictive Maintenance & Quality is a software solution that predicts asset failure or quality issues so an organization can avoid costly downtime and reduce maintenance costs. The primary goal of the project was to re-engineer legacy PMQ as a SaaS offering.
Proof of Concept Prototype
My role was to design the visual interaction spec for PMQ SaaS proof of concept prototype.
Collected information about users, and industry from subject matter experts. This information fed directly into the wireframes and mockups.
Met bi-weekly with development and product management to quickly gather review data on mockup iterations.
Defined all agreements in a visual design spec for development. Worked alongside development to ensure accurate implementation of design, and to quickly fix any issues. The POC contributed to getting executive sign-on for the project, and allowed us to move to the MVP phase.
Contributed to the design of the MVP strategy.
Participated in design thinking sessions focused on gathering user assumptions, creating empathy maps, and experience maps. Collaborated on scenarios, storyboards and user research.
Worked directly with the product manager and lead developer to define the feature requirements for Test View. Designed lo-fidelity mockups to gather feedback on architecture and interaction. Design was then passed on to visual designer to align with IBM visual guidelines.
Result was a solid MVP offering well received by sponsor users.
