In 2016, as a UX Designer consultant, I helped Adacel redesign the instructor’s application for Air Traffic Controller training. I optimized the workflow from minutes to seconds, to build training scenarios.

To begin, I met with the client and conducted user interviews with the stakeholders and heuristic evaluation on the legacy application. I proposed a modern Material Design approach and designed a couple of wireframes.

The new approach would display template scenarios in a grid layout from the most popular. The instructor can load it under 5-10 seconds. As a second and optional step, the instructor can customize the scenario based on what the training exercise should be. This step would take less then a minute.

As an adjustment, I added a “lock” feature so that the “exams” scenarios would be password protected.
