Schenck Process wins red dot design award 2019
Published by Lucy Stewardson,
CONiQ, the new weighing control unit from Schenck Process for industrial weighing applications, is engineered to be fit for different environments and tasks. It was launched in 2019 and has already been awarded the Red Dot design award 2019 for interface design.
CONiQ was developed in an iterative human-centered design process together with Customer Interaction.
Starting with field observations, detailed data about current usage with the predecessor weighing device, as well as user needs, was collected. The analysis of the information was transformed into first drafts of the CONiQ user interface. User feedback from early UX-tests and interviews was what developed those first drafts into first wireframes and later clickdummys. In every iteration user feedback was gathered and integrated in the next version of the user interface. The visual design was developed and integrated into the user interface in parallel. The result is an easy-to-understand, easy-to-operate, and like-to-have interface design.
The first user feedback confirms the consistent implementation of a user centric development and attests a “quantum jump” in the development.
The company has stated that it is proud that both the first users of the interface, as well as the international jury of the red dot design award 2019 are content with its design and usability. Over a period of several days, the experts have reviewed, discussed, and evaluated a total of 8697 international award contributions in order to ultimately reward the best.
“This is really a breakthrough for Schenck Process to be recognised as a company having significant capabilities in designing excellent user interfaces,” said Peter Groll, Chief Technology Officer, Schenck Process Group.
“For around 65 years, the Red Dot Award, as one of the world’s largest design competitions, has been providing a platform for designers, agencies, and companies to evaluate good design,” said Prof. Peter Zec, Founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award. “I want to congratulate the laureates sincerely on their distinction, which both bears testimony to their convincing performance and highlights their quality and design leadership. Anyone who succeeds in such a strong and international bunch of competitors deserves to be proud of themselves and their achievements.”
