Soldier-centered tech design – meeting their needs in the field
Kirsten Willms (UX, Human Factors & Design Team Member General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada)
Our mission: designing high-tech usable equipment for soldiers who operate in high-workload and harsh environments. How do we understand what our users need so that we can build the best products for them? We involve them in a user-centered design process, right from the start. A case-study of a recent product development will be discussed which highlights the importance of not just user feedback, but a collective and collaborative cross-disciplinary effort of engineering teams.
