Task

 

Your project brief has been accepted by Senior Management and a design project has been formally commenced. You have been appointed as both Project Manager and Chief Designer for the project.

 

Your tasks are to:

 

  1. Update your project brief with full details of
    1. Objectives, Outputs and Targets,
    2. Success Criteria.

 

  1. Write a Project Design Proposal that covers the following:
    1. Design aims;
    2. Outline of the proposed design;
    3. Outline of the main Use Cases;
    4. Proposed evaluation methods.

 

Your first task updates your initial project document. The update should now reflect the complete user requirements and your objectives, outputs and targets for the project. This update will probably not exceed two (2) pages.

 

The Project Design Proposal should outline firstly your design aims for the project and how they will meet the user requirements.

 

You should give a brief outline of your design. This should be mainly written, rather than be drawn, and you should describe HOW your design will enhance the user experience (UX) of the user while meeting their requirements. You will also need to refer to design principles to support your argument.

 

Finally, you need to discuss how you will test your design for usability, UX, and the interface’s fit to the requirements. Again you will want to support your argument with reference to principles. You do not need to produce a full test plan at this time.

 

Your Project Design Proposal should NOT exceed three (3) pages, excluding references. You will need to reference all literature using the APA 6th edition referencing style.
