RAN - RFID-based Automotive Network
Complex process visualization based on a research workshop
In this project we visualized the results of a 3 years longterm research, conducted by several research institutes but also private economy, mainly automotive industry and its suppliers. Our task was to find a pleasant way to present their multilayer results: The communication of an "Infobrooker Network" within global production processes, not just within companies but - and this was one of the main achievements of the research project - also between many different suppliers.
When we met the very first time with the RAN-team they showed us some of their attempts to visualize the Infobroker with Infographic design. Based on their idea to organize the information, the project was built up of three layers : information for management, practitioners and technicans. The sketch, we developed during the meeting, is based on the idea of a folder. Each time you unfold the paper, you get deeper in your understanding of the whole network.
Now you can follow us developing this folder from the very first sketches, to workshops where we discussed the special content with all clientside team members, to the final result:
