At craftworks, we develop customized and reliable solutions for companies using open source and state of the art technologies. Over the last years, there is an increasing amount of data that organizations collect, produce and distribute for decision-making purposes. We understand the associated requirements and at the same time also focus on the usability of software solutions.
VERBUND is Austria's leading electricity company and one of the largest producers of electricity from hydropower in Europe. In order to increase the efficiency of hydropower plants, information-based planning and control of the capacity and storage management is essential. VERBUND is looking for an intuitive software solution that improves the current workflow.
The Kick-off meeting between the project team from VERBUND and craftworks had two main goals: On the one side to get a better understanding of the domain, the different data sources, the current set-ups and the full project scope. On the other hand, a project plan was created including milestones. The project was developed in an agile and iterative development process according to SCRUM with 2 week sprints, which were defined in joint planning meetings following the milestone plan. In order to develop a user-friendly tool that meets the requirements of the user’s needs, we have conducted a contextual inquiry directly with the users and incorporated the feedback along the development process.
