Abstract [en]

Relacom Defense suffers from a lack of a uniform IT system. They also have an old ITsystem, called @Tender, which contain unsolved bugs, usability issues and the ITsystem is currently not supporting the users to work in an effective way. This IT system needs to be replaced and integrated with the other IT systems in the department. To find the requirements of this future IT system, a user centered approach was established. Interviews and observations based on the departments own project flow model were done in order to learn the current systems and to learn how the users use the systems on a daily basis. Vision seminars were conducted in order to find more requirements of the future system and to create a vision of how future work in whole could and should look like. A specification of requirements was created and provided a foundation for continued work with creating paper prototypes of the user interface of the future system. The developed paper prototypes were evaluated in cooperation with the end users. When user acceptance was reached, more detailed prototypes were developed and evaluated in cooperation with end users. The specification of requirements and the prototypes of the user interface is a foundation for future development and implementation of the system.
