We noticed that while designing the interface, sometimes we designed based on assumptions. For example, we assumed that these were the tools and functions the respondents need. We realized that we made assumptions because most of the design decisions were based on the secondary research. We did not have a comprehensive understanding of the industry.
Our design will be stronger if we can actually conduct interviews with people working in the USDA and the food supply chain so that we can have a better understanding of their needs.
Due to the time constraint, we did not design the interface for the food regulatory agencies.
I would like to continue the project by designing the interface
for regulatory agencies. However, before that, I will first do more field research.
In our model, we collect data such as the temperature and humidity of each box through sensors attaching on the container.
We need to consider if the design is feasible, desirable, and viable; specifically, whether the producer is willing to spend the money on the sensor.
