)-- Louise Dickmeyer, President of People Driven Performance Solutions discussed in the company blog, “The plant floor workers need user interface ease, simplicity to be engaged, involved, and retained. Too often without this shop floor personnel connection, a dollar an hour more per hour down the street has the workforce exiting in droves.” The last decade has seen somewhat of a technological revolution with consumer user experience (UX) pushing boundaries and exceeding expectations of what is possible. At the turn of the century, the idea of using a mobile phone app to make coffee, plot the precise locations of flu epidemics using social media reports, or track the journeys of trains, planes and automobiles, would have been dismissed as sci-fi. We now take such concepts for granted.
In the issue of Global Manufacturing, Phil Lewis explained why manufacturers need to embrace a new era of business software. Lewis continues that sadly this revolution failed to get past the door of the business UX, where users have instead been forced to adapt to their respective enterprise software solution, tolerating its clunky features and cumbersome layout, largely because there was little by way of an alternative. However a new generation of users, or millennials as they have become known, has challenged the status quo in recent years, disrupting what has been considered the norm for manufacturers.
