The project

Aspen Technology is a chemical engineering software company, the scope of this project is to merge aspen's two dated web apps into a new app with more modern UI and robust functionalities.  

The challenges

It is a very complex application with a lot of functionalities, and it is very technical. Not only was I the UX designer, I also had to understand chemical engineering to a certain extend to be able to design the application. 

The Process

Working closely with another designer on the team, when we get use cases, the two of us had to do a lot of brainstorming sessions on whiteboards to come up with potential solutions to each use case.
