Vitality - Innovative PC Application for commissioning of Industrial Flow meters.
The GE Measurement & Control development team, in collaboration with Intersection, has developed Vitality – a new PC Software application for configuration, troubleshooting and commissioning of industrial ultrasonic flow meters. Vitality moved away from traditional multi-screen applications designs with NEXT and BACK buttons, to a simplified and intuitive navigation architecture powered by our two patent pending software wizards.
The new security color-coding scheme allows customers to easily and quickly determine the proper security level required for modification of certain variables, units’ conversion and notification. This helps users quickly select a unit, which the application converts and populates over all screens, while the configurations wizard simplifies the complex configuration process for Safety Integrity Level (SIL) instruments.
Vitality provides an enjoyable customer experience by simplifying complex applications within the software.
- Why this project is worthy of a UX Award:
Industrial application software is traditionally very conservative due to the high risk of failure associated with any instrument operation, especially Safety Integrity Level (SIL) certified meters. By implementing two patent pending software wizards, we have been able to completely redesign the UI with a modern look and feel while simultaneously making it easier to use and more reliable, ultimately leading to an increase in customer satisfaction.
