|The application is a secondary tool and will always be open alongside other primary applications. Its main window should be open all the time without interfering with the primary application.|
|The system does not serve an essential task of the user, and may be totally ignored. Ease and efficiency of use is critical for the acceptance of the product.|
|The Analysis of the users’ workflows has shown that the information and functionality of the application could be organized in a much simpler structure.|
The application contains two windows: The Main window is a small screen that remains open all the time. It only contains the logo, two buttons and a status line. The “Card” window is a dialog which contains all the car data, divided into four tabs.
The Common workflow for a user will be: The user puts a card in the Card reader, and presses “New Card” or “Open Card” >> In the Card window the user reads or updates data >> When finished he presses “Write and Close”.
|Only two windows, instead of six!|
|The main window is in Toolbar style - thus saving screen area and enabling the application to be open in conjunction with the primary application.|
|A very simple and self explanatory workflow.|
