At SAP I worked as a member of the central design team. Our responsibility was to support and trigger design change inside the company. At the heart of this work was a design framework built to redefine old SAP software.
I worked extensively on two topics: Supply Chain Management and Recipe Management.
In Supply Chain Management the main challenge was how to visualize the network of the supply chain in an interactive way so that the user can understand what is happening with the goods, where problems are occuring, who could solve them and how. Furthermore we wanted them to understand how their process could be optimized through their networks.
In Recipe Management my task was to understand universal properties of the complex hierarchical system of recipes at different companies and create a UI that helps the user to understand their system and manage the recipes easily with the minimum amount of work.
