Design process helps to build up the elements of great user experience and solve the problems. It guides the team to make intentional design decisions by exploring various options, while validating the stronger ones and uprooting the weaker ones.

Analyze

The requirement shared, primarily to validate the statement

Identify

The use-cases relevant to real time scenarios and map crucial events in the flow

Create

Multiple concepts using low fidelity wire frames

Validate

The chosen concept with cross -functional team using high fidelity wire frames

Deliver

UI mockups with respect to the user flow and events

Planning & Tracking Tasks

Azure Devops

We use Azure DevOps to track and collaborate on tasks, also to maintain the to-do lists.

Design System

Plexos Design System

Design systems help product teams to approach design with a system in mind. It reduces inconsistencies and improves efficiency at a scale. This helps teams to move quickly. In Energy Exemplar to introduce the design system for Plexos we started with an audit.

Explored existing interactions, and collected all of the UI elements in the product. Developed a simple and useful system.

The design system encouraged people to look beyond the building blocks of and to think of their purpose of their design
