Introduction

StockUp is an app designed for the Interaction Design Fundamentals class at Carnegie Mellon University. The project required us to design an original mobile app that helps ambulance drivers/attendants to do their job better.

We demonstrated our ability to sketch a better future based on the technology of today and the near future. A critical part of this assignment was cultivating understanding and empathy toward your users, and discovering a need or opportunity that doesn't exist.

The Problem Statement

To conceive an original mobile service that provides tools and/or information to an ambulance driver/attendant accessing critical information while on the job.

Final Deliverable

These are the final screens of the app which we prototyped in Sketch.

Research

We started with idea generation. We created an affinity mapping of our ideas to find any overlap. From these ideas we picked our ten favorite ones and created a feasibility graph of those to see which idea would solve a genuine problem. We narrowed it down to four ideas which we got validated from an ambulance driver at Pittsburgh Paramedic. The driver gave us valuable insights on their day to day activities and problems they faced which helped us narrow down our scope.

The Selected Idea

Based on all our research we narrowed down and finalised on the following idea - StockUp is an inventory management assistant which keeps track of the ambulance inventory reducing the manual labor to be done by EMTs and saving them time so that they can focus on more important tasks like saving lives.

Time is crucial for EMTs.
EMTs do not have a lot of time for secondary tasks like inventory management, but keeping track of what is and isn't in the ambulance is very important as otherwise they might not have a required medicine during an emergency.

Prototyping

After going through all the data gathered from our research, we decided on the main functions we wanted the app to include. We started designing the screens using paper prototypes. After getting substantial feedback from our peers we went on to create digital prototypes which were refined over time.

Final Design

Here is the final prototype that we made using Sketch and Invision
