Abstract:The fast-increasing amount and complexity of data in sewer management exert pressure on outdated client-side software programs, leading to operational difficulties and user complaints. This highlights the urgent need for a user-friendly web-based sewer management application capable of effectively managing complex data, whose research has been overlooked. Hence, to bridge the gap, this research endeavors to develop a user interface for sewer management web application incorporating web design principles and data visualization techniques to ensure optimized usefulness, usability, aesthetics, interactivity, and ease of use. The five-step model of Design Thinking Process from Stanford was followed throughout the whole design process. The literature review and the interviews with domain experts were conducted to understand user needs, based on which the interactive design was developed. A modified technology acceptance model, containing 7-point Likert-Scaled questions, was adopted to evaluate the final design with five domain experts. The evaluation result shows that the majority of participant responses for perceived usefulness and aesthetics are in the range of 5 to 6, 4 to 6 for perceived usability and interactivity, and 4 to 5 for perceived ease of use, indicating that the design effectively addresses the major challenges identified in current software solutions and therefore contributes to bridging the research gap.
