Utveckling av ett användbart Människa-Maskin-Gränssnitt (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

When developing a Human-Machine-Interface (HMI) it is important to make sure that it is easy to learn and use, to have high usability. If it does not, the operator of the machine suffers unnecessarily and it also becomes harder to sell for the producer of the machine. The effectiveness and efficiency of the machine drops down when it is hard to operate. To make it easier for future developers to reach a high usability factor when developing a HMI, this thesis aimed to find a carefully prepared process to follow when doing so. The result was a process that was tested out with a HMI prototype for waterjet cutting machines. This prototype was then tested in different use cases by both experienced operators as well as beginners. The testing produced positive feedback on the prototype, proving that the process that had been followed was being successful.

Abstract [sv]

När man utvecklar ett Människa-Maskin-Gränssnitt (HMI) så är det viktigt att se till att det är lätt att lära sig och använda, att det har hög användbarhet. Ifall den inte har det så försämrar det operatörers situation i onödan och gör det svårare för producenter att sälja produkten. Produktionseffektiviteten minskar ifall maskinen är svår att hantera. För att göra det lättare för framtida utvecklare att nå en hög användbarhet när de utvecklar ett HMI så siktade detta examensarbete på att hitta en genomtänkt process att följa vid ett sådant tillfälle. Resultatet blev en process som testades via en HMI prototyp för vattenskärnings maskiner. Denna prototyp blev sedan testad i olika användarfall av både erfarna operatörer och nybörjare. Testerna visade sig ge positiv återkoppling, vilket bevisade att processen som följts upp till den punkten fungerade.
