A mobile companion app for Systems Engineering serves as a tool that aids conversations around the systems being designed. It’s not the main Systems Engineering solution — the mobile app rather allows to quickly pull up key information from it, like details about the elements that underpin a system’s design, thus anchoring the communication on concrete aspects.
To rework the mobile companion app, Systems Engineering decided to side with Monterail to keep the communication at the highest level, since we were already engaged in developing the main web service.
Key challenges of the project included:
- Integrating the mobile app with the new API
- Reworking the mobile app’s interface for improved UX
- Future-proofing the mobile app (technology-wise)
