Abstract:It can be difficult for companies to order the right components or products, especially when it might concern thousands of products at once. Mydatafactory developed a system to helps these companies order the right parts or products. An important part of this system is called `the matching interface'. This matching interface enables the user to check whether the system linked the correct product to an item on the companies `grocery list'. Validating these products can be a long and tedious process, the goal of this project was to improve this process in speed and usability. First the current interface was tested through usability tests, questionnaires and interviews. Based on these results a prototype was developed. This prototype was then tested with the same procedure as the current matching interface in order to conclude if the prototype could indeed improve the matching process. The results showed that the prototype interface did improve the matching process in both speed and usability, but further improvements are still necessary.
