USABILITY

USABILITY

USABILITY

Enhanced Usability with .Net


Usability is a qualitative attribute that assesses how easy
user interfaces are to use


Usability is now recognized industry wide as an
important software quality attribute


Enhanced usability is the product of technology and
intelligent design of the interaction with a software user
interface



.Net on Win Mobile provides a powerful platform to
create ongoing enhancements to usability based on work
flow while meeting QAD transaction requirements

Attributes of Usability


Familiarity:

Do users associate the look and feel
with other designs they have seen?


Learnability:

How easy is it for users to
accomplish basic tasks the first time they
encounter the design?


Efficiency:

Once users have learned the design,
how quickly can they perform tasks?


Memorability:

When users return to the design
after a period of not using it, how easily can they
re establish proficiency?

Increased Efficiency


Intelligent Prompting


e.g.: Lot, serial, data defaults


No manual entry on mobile device


Data access responsiveness


No clicking “Ok” to close windows


Information return only if not “Ok”


Minimize total click count


Navigation + scan count



Work Flow Driven Data Access


Browse QAD data on Mobile Client


Item location, quantities, lots, etc


Scrap reasons


PO lines


Shipping schedules, details


Container content relationships


Work flow driven


User selectable

Adaptive Work Flow Execution


A Mobile Client should use .Net to integrate
manufacturing process requirements with
defined QAD process flows


Mobile work flows are designed to streamline the
collection of data to the minimum number of
scans possible while generating the required
data flow and transaction execution into QAD


Error management is integral to the work flow to
prevent execution errors before they occur


Work flows should be configurable to adapt to
changes in manufacturing processes or QAD
process flows

2D Labeling

2D Labeling


More Than

Just a Mandate

What is 2D?


2D can contain up to 1,000 characters,
depending on format vs. 20 characters in a
1 dimensional barcode


Linear barcodes (or 1D) get longer as more
data is encoded


2D barcode encode data in both the
horizontal and vertical dimensions


1D barcodes typically depend on links to a
larger database


2D contains a sort of mini
-
database itself,
which includes information on the product
and its attributes which can be encrypted

Some 2D Symbologies


PDF417



Data Matrix


Aztec Code


MaxiCode


HCCB




Supporting 2D means more

than just hardware scanning support.


Your DC software must support the migration

Intelligent Labeling

From Automated Labeling



To Intelligent Labeling

Intelligent Labeling


Print predefined labels


Mobile label printing


Document printing


Internet label printing


Printer Management


Define printers, label format & printer hierarchy


Link devices to users, users to printers and
transaction type to label format


Accurate labels, in the right place,



at the right time, in the right quantity!

Nested Container/Inventory Management

License Plate System



“Master, mixed, detail labels on steroids”


Associate multiple data elements with a single
serial/license plate # scan:


Warehouse / Location


Employee ID


Part / Lot / Serial


Quantity / Unit of Measure


Container Serial #


PO / Vendor


Other




A great tool for selective serial numbering, kitting / bagging, etc.
