Applying visual analytics to effect real-time decision making in manufacturing environments

Along with industry partners, including NGrain, Convergent Manufacturing and Boeing, we are proposing to develop state-of-the-art visualization and interactive techniques for exploring sensor and manufacturing component data, in-situ. Through a combination of user research and user-centered design techniques, this project proposes the development of a technical demonstrator of a mobile manufacturing job aid as the foundation for evaluating the usability and effectiveness of novel 2D and 3D visual analytics techniques that could be suitable for use as a decision-support aid in a real-world manufacturing environment with end users who constitute a broad range of roles and skill sets. The expected outcome involves the design of novel interactive visualizations for temporal sensor datasets generated by Convergent for objects manufactured by Boeing.
