Assignment 2 – Project Design Proposal Value: 15\% Project Design Proposal 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. Write a Project Design Proposal that covers the following:Design AimsWhat are your aims as the Interface Designer?What are your aims as a Project Manager?Outline of the proposed DesignUse Case DiagramBrief Use Case DescriptionDesign Summaries (Example: Screen1: Home Page/ Dashboard contents: menu of user tasks, flower search, help?) Write design summaries for each screen? Add your own ideas/features Write textual descriptions like this for as many screen/tasks you expect to include in book app. Ex: if your design has 10/15 screens you may have to write 10/15 screen descriptions.)Evaluation Method Select 2/3 evaluation method and give description how it will help with this case study such as 1. Expert Review 2. Survey (Questionnaire) 3. Usability Tests 4. Acceptance Tests 5. Evaluation During Active Use 6. Controlled Psychologically Oriented Experiments The Project Design Proposal should outline firstly your design aims for the project and how they will meet the user requirements. Your design aims may be to improve the following: Time to learn > How long does it take for typical members of the community to learn relevant task? > Speed of performance > How long does it take to perform relevant benchmarks? > Rate of errors by users > How many and what kinds of errors are made during benchmark tasks? > Retention over time > Frequency of use and ease of learning help make for better user retention > Subjective satisfaction > Allow for user feedback via interviews, free-form comments and satisfaction scales You should then give a brief outline of your design. This should be mainly written, rather than be drawn, and you should describe and discuss HOW your design will enhance the user experience (UX) of the user while meeting their requirements, You may also want to refer to design principles to support your argument. Finally, you need to discuss how you will test your design for usability, UX, and its 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. Rationale The rationale of this assignment is to test students’ ability to capture, develop and understand user requirements for an interface design project and develop those requirements into Objectives, Outputs and Targets. From the requirements, the student should also be able to develop the Success Criteria for the design. The assignment will also test the ability of students to plan and develop a design that meets the user requirements and enhances the user experience.

A local shop keeper who deals with selling books to the local community wants to automate
some functions of his shop. The customers currently pay at the counter that is operated by a
teller operator. The shop keeper expects you to design a mobile app. The mobile app should
allow the customers to view book categories and the selected books to purchase. The book
shop app also offers discounts for regular customers, discounts for bulk purchases and much
more. You have been commissioned to design this mobile app and search facility for the new
online presence of the book shop. Initially the system will be run on few Android phones that
are placed at the entrance of the book shop. That is, they wish to pilot this aspect first and
have it in the controlled environment of their current, physical store. If that works effectively,
then they will expand that service to a full web-based service and also add other functionality
that is currently outside the scope of this pilot system, such as online sales.
You can make up a selection of your choice with a variety of books. The customer is
expected to make his/her choices and find where in the book shop the book can be found, or
if not available, how long it will take to order it in. The system is linked directly to the
customer database, so that if the customer enters their ID, whatever discounts they are
entitled to will automatically be taken into account in the price displayed. Although payments
is outside the scope of the pilot, correct pricing information does need to be displayed, but
payments have to be made at the counter in the store.
Your design focus is on providing the application screen design and layout function for the
purchaser. You do not have to worry about the accounting system for the book shop. There
will be no human assistance available at the kiosk when it is fully deployed.
Your task is to design an application to run on an automated mobile app that allows
customers to search for and order book items as quickly as possible. You may assume that the
Android phone will consist primarily of a screen that users will interact with. You may
assume that the book shop has capacity for up to 250 customers on three floors of the same
building and therefore several Android phones will be operated simultaneously.
You may make any other assumptions not stated here but you must state them in Section B of
your assignment. You will need to provide drawings of the interface design for your system.
Drawings can be rough sketches, but must clearly show all components of your design. Do
not use any existing book shop name, trademarks or pictures. In addition to the drawings
which provide one interface to the system you may recommend other input and output
devices. For example will you use voice input/output, a touch screen etc.? Think carefully
about the system, the tasks, what they do and how your customers might interact. Who are
the clients/users? What do you feel should be the usability goals? How can you develop an
interface that meets these usability goals for these customers? Are there any constraints to the
development of the interface?
The following aspects are out of scope for this assignment:
Electrical, network and other technical specifications of the kiosk;
