In this deliverable, we present the outcomes of the follow-up activities of the trials concerning the collection of new requirements. We particularly highlight emerged demands in the areas of usability and analytics. The results are prioritized using the Requirements Bazaar methodology and tool. They are currently fed into the development process by WP2. WP6 is using the outcomes of this deliverables to improve the execution of the next planned trials. The final iteration of this report will be released in the last month of the project.
The document reports on the status of the WEKIT framework. Building up on the methodologies described in D1.3 “WEKIT Framework & Training Methodology – First version”, it outlines the work done and progress made so far in the Task 1.3. The WEKIT framework was drafted to guide and support the development and implementation of the project. It aims to support the transition of the trainers from the traditional training platform to the WEKIT approach.
The purpose of this document is to describe the first trial of the WEKIT prototype for the Space Industrial Case. The selected use case for the test was a procedure from the astronaut training scenario. The users had to execute the steps of the procedure using the WEKIT Player application while the creation of the steps was guided by the trainers and by using the WEKIT Recorder.
The purpose of this document is to describe the first trial of the WEKIT prototype for the Engineering Industrial Case. The selected use case for the test was a procedure to teach a medical student how to perform a selected ultrasound examination.
The objective of the Aeronautical pilot case was to test the WEKIT prototype on a real procedure used for the maintenance training in Aviation, as defined in D6.1 – Training Scenario and Evaluation Plan for Aeronautics.
The WEKIT Deliverable 2.4 assesses the completion of the first prototype of the WEKIT platform, including the results of technical testing in cycle 1 of development. D2.4 follows the development pattern “MVP” (minimum viable product), also called “DEM: Demonstrator, pilot, prototype”. The main design goals concerned both hard- and software aspects of the MVP-prototype. This report describes how those goals were met and then evaluated in trials. The integrated prototype described in the deliverable contains input from WP2, WP3, WP4, and WP5.
The objective the this Deliverable relates to design areas of Visualization Design Solutions and more generally the following challenges:
- To define a design methodology for wearability and for ergonomics in workplaces.
- To define design recommendations for wearable experience capturing and re-enactment.
- To perform user testing of hardware and software design solutions.
- To generate an interactive toolkit.
- To create an interactive repository of captured experience content.
Use in the workplace of the wearable technology that is a deliverable for the WEKIT project can only be initiated if prior preparation has taken place for it to be integrated into the three scenario’s existing workplace environments, processes and systems.
Workplace Integration preparation involves many aspects but amongst the key perspectives that need to be considered are challenges with the Workplace Integration Factors.
The Wearable Design Solutions task will integrate the WEKIT experience capturing prototype into a fashionable, wearable garment. The integration process involved three iterations of the prototype, each prototype was modified based on the evolving requirements and prototype 3 is the latest model for the first wave.
The authors conducted an extensive literature survey from desk-based research and looked at existing practices for designing methodologies for a system of devices to be optimised for Wearability. The authors then evaluated the literature to identify case studies and emerging toolkits going on to document factors related to Ergonomics (Human Factors) for usability and their role in practice-based design methods. From this research, the authors defined a methodology for implementation. At this stage the current draft has revealed lacunae and areas for further study in the wider field of research into Wearables. For the moment these are presented as they stand but a future edition of this report is envisaged that would lead to a WEKIT-directed synthesis of the present broad review.
