Predix Power Plant Maintenance and Diagnostics Concept
Below are sketches from a field research trip I had taken to a power plant just outside Phoenix Arizona. I was tasked with shadowing plant operators as they made their rounds checking for issues with the machines inside the plant and looking for opportunities in mobility solutions. While interviewing them, I captured notes and sketches that I would later use to create concepts for an app (see below) that allows the same operators to quickly identify the roots cause and location of a sensor that has caused an alert helping avoid prolonged downtime.
Mobile Alert Concepts
Placing a solution in the hands of the factory operators would be a extremely useful way to quickly troubleshoot asset issues throughout the plant. Because a lot of the working components of the plant are housed in low lighting conditions, this interface utilizes the Predix UI dark theme.
