Abstract [en]

SINTEF Energy (hereafter called SINTEF) develops complex compu- tational models for energy production in Norway. These models are controlled by command line interfaces when used for testing, in meetings, or in other contexts. They may, to some extent, be visualized with Python or MATLAB scripts, but lacks a good graphical user interface, as well as including the users in an interactive manner. SINTEF desires to look at the capabilities of moving some of today’s CLI-based workflow to a mobile environment, with an interactive user interface. They want to expand their view, exploring new ways of working. They also want to know if their current information models are able to handle these new environments. We will develop a front-end application for an Android tablet. With an agile prototyping methodology, we identify requirements to make such an application both user-friendly and useful to the end users. The application is primarily a proof-of-concept to illustrate the potential of making a new interface to SINTEFs existing computational models. The development process is also used to see if SINTEFs existing information models are extensive enough to match with the new mobile environments. The application will first and foremost be evaluated by its potential to present a prototype GUI, but also by a set of design principles regarding mobile design, and its strengths and weaknesses. Our concept illustrates the potential of visualizing parts of SINTEFs existing applications to a mobile device in an interactive manner. The users saw a potential in saving time by using such an application. The application is also used to suggest an extension to SINTEFs existing information model. This proposed CIM extension has been implemented in our application, and is generally viable for other software applications utilizing information model.
