User Experience

Laster cutting with intuitive user interface

The new user interface on the ByVention laser cutting system is easy to operate for anyone. Zühlke developed software for this interface.

Customer Benefits

  • Transfer of expertise in embedded systems and Windows CE.
  • Product was launched on schedule.
  • Optimum cost-benefit ratio thanks to Rational Unified Process.

Task

Bystronic was developing a new generation of laser cutting systems called ByVention and hoped to appeal to additional customer segments with this line’s new machining design. The laser cutting system was to be used for cutting standard sizes of sheet metal. A crucial part of the design was an intuitive user-centred interface. Bystronic also wished to enlarge its in-house development capacity and commissioned Zühlke to handle usability, requirements engineering and software development for the user interface.

Solution

In an architectural review, Zühlke pointed out aspects of the present software which could be optimised in terms of architecture and process development. Together with Bystronic’s domain experts, Zühlke software developers and usability specialists designed the masks and operating sequences in usability workshops. Based on the specified requirements, the project team then developed the software on schedule and within the budget. In parallel with this project, the customer phased in a software development process called RUP (Rational Unified Process). As a result, Bystronic was able to benefit from the Zühlke experts’ RUP experience even while the project work was going on.
