Visual Designer

Goals:

Our goal was to bring efficiency and agility to the management of hydroelectric plants.

Non-disclosure agreement

Some information such as photos and final prints were not displayed in this project due to the agreement signed between me and the company.

Problem:

Hydroelectric plants were grappling with significant challenges in environmental data monitoring. Manual data collection, conducted with clipboards and paper technical sheets, was a slow, inefficient, and costly process, further complicated by the subsequent need for digitization and report generation.


There was also a problem specifically related to the use of paper: handwriting.


Technicians often use clipboards in inhospitable places, sometimes they need to write while taking measurements on the boat, with all the movement that the river causes.

Therefore, the understanding of what was written was almost always compromised, which further delayed the data collection procedure.

Solution:

The "Inspeções e Medições (Inspections and Measurements)" app was born, an innovation developed to transform and digitize the traditional data collection processes of the hydrology teams at Grupo Construserv. The app not only automated collection and calculations but also facilitated real-time data sharing, raising operational efficiency to new levels and improving decision-making for managers.

My

contribution:

My contribution:

I was deeply involved in every step of this project. I was responsible for conceiving the app’s name and visual identity and was pivotal in the research, user interface design, testing, and delivery. I deepened my involvement by accompanying teams in the field to intrinsically understand the challenges of the manual process and identify opportunities for digital optimization.


I implemented an iterative design process, starting with a basic version of the app to validate functionalities and receptiveness, followed by regular updates based on feedback and field observations. Each update was meticulously planned and executed in collaboration with the development team, ensuring harmony between intuitive design, robust functionality, and compliance with industry standards.

Project

phases:

Project phases:

Research and Planning:

Accompanying field teams to understand existing challenges;

Interviews with employees to gather insights and suggestions.

Development:

Creation of the name and visual identity;

Development of the user interface and integration with the existing web system.

Testing and Iteration::

Launch of an initial version for validation and feedback;

Regular updates to enhance functionalities and usability.

Implementation:

Full roll-out of the digitized app, marking the transformation from manual data collection process to an efficient technology-based system.

Challenge Overcome:
To deeply dive into the teams’ services and activities and translate intricate manual processes into an intuitive, efficient, and reliable digital solution.

Final result:

The Inspeções e Medições is part of a large and complex project. The application encompasses an ecosystem managed by the Global web system (another product with an interface also developed by me), which generates activities and sends them to the applications, receives all information about activities and inspections carried out, processes the results and produces reports that are sent to the National Water and Basic Sanitation Agency (ANA).


After many challenges, it was possible to implement through the application:

Digitization of 7 different inspections with real-time communication.

Agenda of activities for field technicians.

Search for the nearest accommodation registered with the company.

Management of travel expenses to control the inspection campaign cost center.

To provide better management in the development of all products in the Construserv Group ecosystem, I created the company's Design System and was able to deliver more agility, quality and consistency in projects.

It's alive!
