Abstract [en]

This thesis project aims to study the design of an Augmented Reality solution for the industry that benefits the user. Three industry-related roles are studied individually, the shop floor worker role, the line manager role, and the maintenance worker role.

In order to do this, two different information display approaches; having access to a personal source of information, and having distributed sources of information linked to the working space, are implemented, analyzed, and compared, from acognitive ergonomics perspective. Insight on how the different design decisions can affect the outcome of the Augmented Reality system in each case, is extracted from performance, usability, perceived workload, and user experience evaluations of each of the approaches for each of the roles.

The design and creation methodology for information system and computing research is followed for this project. A literature review is performed in order to define and understand the addressed problem, solutions are proposed in an iterative process, culminating in the implementation of the final idea, which is then evaluated by a group of test subjects. These evaluations target cognitive ergonomics assessments of the different design approaches and their results are collected and analyzed in order to draw conclusions and present the project’s findings.

The obtained results point to a set of different strengths and weaknesses for each of the Augmented Reality approaches implemented for each of the industry roles considered. For the shop floor and maintenance workers, distributed approaches for information display can be more exciting and engaging, but they can also increase task completion time, in comparison to information displayed in personal panels. However, the results point to line managers can possibly benefit more from the use of personal panels.
