Task

You are to prepare the project scope and initial requirements and assumptions for a new Interface Design project for the Museum Guided Exhibition as outlined in the Museum Guided Exhibition problem case study.

You are to prepare a Project Brief for this project. The project brief will set the basis for the rest of your assignment work in ITC504.

You should approach this project as a “blue sky” project. That is, you are going to design and develop an interface that is different to those that you have previously worked on. This means that your planning will necessarily be somewhat more diffident as you will be doing research during the planning and design process to achieve your design aims.

Your project brief should include the following sections:OverviewVisionScopeOutcomesKey assumptionsObjectives, Outputs and TargetsSuccess Criteria

The project brief should concentrate on the Overview, Vision, Scope, Outcomes and Key Assumptions at this stage. These sections define your vision for the project and should be reasonably well developed.

The Objectives and Success Criteria may not be well known at this stage, but some effort should be made to determine what they are. These will be added to later in the project.

Your project brief is NOT to exceed 2 pages in length.
Rationale

This assignment covers the following objectives for this subject:be able to explain the relevance of integrating aspects of the human, social and organisational context into the design process;be able to list and explain the importance of the principles of design that are applicable to the design of
an interface;be able to design a user interface to meet a given set of requirements;

Task

Your project brief has been accepted by Senior Management and a design project has been formally commenced. You have been appointed as both Project Manager and Chief Designer for the project.

Your tasks are to:Update your project brief with full details of:Objectives, Outputs and Targets,Success Criteria.Write a Project Design Proposal that covers the following:Design aims;Outline of the proposed design.Proposed evaluation methods;

Your first task updates your initial project document. The update should now reflect the complete user requirements and your objectives, outputs and targets for the project. This update will probably not exceed two (2) pages.

The Project Design Proposal should outline firstly your design aims for the project and how they will meet the user requirements.

You should give a brief outline of your design. This should be mainly written, rather than be drawn, and you should describeHOWyour design will enhance the user experience (UX) of the user while meeting their requirements. You will also need to refer to design principles to support your argument.

Finally, you need to discuss how you will test your design for usability, UX, and the interface’s fit to the requirements. Again you will want to support your argument with reference to principles. You do not need to produce a full test plan at this time.

Your Project Design Proposal should NOT exceed three (3) pages, excluding references. You will need to reference all literature using the APA 6th edition referencing style.Rationale

This assignment covers the following objectives of this subject:be able to explain the relevance of integrating aspects of the human, social and organisational context
into the design process;be able to list and explain the importance of the principles of design that are applicable to the design of
an interface;be able to evaluate the effective usability of an interface and recommend changes to improve its
usability;be able to design a user interface to meet a given set of requirements;be able to design a usability strategy to ensure that an interface meets its usability goals;be able to interpret and evaluate usability testing results to plan interface improvements.

Task

Prepare a detailed design document for the user interface for your project. Your design document should be based on your Project Requirements and Scope document and your Project Design proposal.

Your design document should include the following sections, as a minimum:Design overview;Project scope;Business and User requirements;Key assumptions;Design process to be used;Interface Design, including the following sections with justification for use:All screen layouts;All components identified, with justification for their use;Workflow diagrams for major tasks (if required);Use of colour, frames and sections;Help and user assistance functions;Use of icons;User task navigation;Usability testing and evaluation, including the following sections with justification for use:Evaluation aims;Evaluation methodology;Test audience selection and ethical considerations;Evaluation experiments;Analysis methodology and procedures.

This is the final design for your project so all the sections in the document should be complete in all
