Interface Design, Augmented Reality, Industry 4.0


The constant technological advance collaborates so that different sectors of the industry can change and update themselves in the face of new market demands. Industry 4.0 has been bringing new paradigms that define how the industry should behave in this new scenario. Augmented Reality (AR) technology, as one of the pillars of the 4.0 concept, enables new ways of establishing information technology and promoting this update. Despite the great potential, there is a lack of specific studies regarding the construction of simple and effective AR interfaces. Thus, the objective of this article is to present an AR interface prototype to simplify the management of JIT (Just in Time) docks in a plant which produces televisions. For the execution of this work, the Double Diamond method was applied to understand the current state of studies on UX and UI with AR and to promote innovation in the construction of the AR interface directed to use in the industry. The results demonstrate product acceptance and simplified implementation in the management process.
