Usability is important for the adoption of any system, especially for web-based platforms. RAMP is meant to be easily used online by Manufacturing SMEs and Providers in the automation value chain (i.e., System integration, Automation Systems, Robotics developers, Consultants, etc.), and, as such, usability should be considerably taken into account.
Although currently in a stage of experimentation and testing, RAMP aims to become a commercially viable solution, hence usability improvements should be planned and implemented already at this development stage. The usability aspects of RAMP are discussed in this document, in terms of both UI (User Interface, i.e., graphical elements, layout, etc.) and UX (User Experience, i.e., using the different functionalities, steps, user feelings, etc.).
