InContext

This tool is the culmination of research, design, and assessment spanning two semesters. Four graduate Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) students from Carnegie Mellon University, in partnership with University of Madeira, formed a team to carry out an end-to-end HCI final project. Their client was Logica, a global technical consulting firm, which assigned them to investigate the domain of power management and control at Portugal's energy utility, EDP. The video at left shows the process that led to the design of a new tool to meet the needs of EDP personnel, and below is a summary of the antecedents and benefits of that solution.
