UI / UX Case Study

New UI and UX boosts RAF training efficiency

Background

Our experienced team are responsible for the UI / UX for the UK’s leading military Learning Management System (LMS). This on-premise software has been rolled out to the Ministry of Defense, the RAF and a range of other government agencies.

There is an enormous amount data involved with training the armed forces – from pilots to engineers, training schedules run for years and are incredibly detailed. Effective training can literally be the difference between life and death.

The problem

The right data at the right time

A key, ongoing project is to ensure that military personnel can quickly expose data which is not only relevant, but timely and extremely focused – right down to an individual student’s progress.

This took the form of a new reporting system, smart dashboards and a simpler approach to creating a training schedule.

An extension of this work was to plan and design an automated reporting system that makes it easy for key stakeholders to receive up-to-date information via e-mail on a recurring basis.

The solution

New dashboards

A key part of our work on the LMS was to ensure that military personnel could quickly expose data which is not only relevant, but timely and extremely focused – right down to an individual student’s progress.

An intuitive report builder

We planned and designed an analytics platform which gives unrivaled flexibility. Pulling in data from multiple sources, combining it into beautiful visuals and filtering based on individual needs was now possible through a simple, intuitive interface.

The result

Problems exposed (and solved) quickly

The analytics builder allowed people to move out of spreadsheets and into an intuitive, collaborative environment for better resource sharing and efficiency.

Automated reporting meant that people could quickly see if a problem was developing in training, such as a student falling behind or targets being missed. Removing the snowball effect of compounded issues had a significant boost in efficiency.

Dashboards ensured all stakeholders could quickly and easily gain the ‘big picture’ without having to drill down into the minutia.
