Software development and User Experience (UX)
Elaborated problem description
Chymeia Aps is currently developing an online automated system for the management of chemicals for production companies. The goal of the software is to guide users through the various documentation phases, enabling them to respond to their specific needs. Our current system - which is client-based - comes with a mandatory course. We know from experience that this is key in order to ensure a satisfactory service, however we will not be able to offer this service if we wish to internationalize our product and enter foreign markets. It is therefore pertinent that our software can handle this information gap.
We are based in Trekroner right next to the university so we would love to collaborate with students within the field of IT, who wish to work with us on our business in areas such as:
User experience (UX)
We wish to work with students engaged in user experience (UX), who recognize issues related to the communication of complex messages in a clear form – as well as how to devise layout and workflow solutions.
This project requires students who have worked with SCRUM, UX, C# programming, Microsoft MVC, and are able to understand the structure of a SQL server database.
1. We are currently developing a system to register support tasks, monitoring of progress and releases of software updates. All tasks should be attached to specific users (companies), which is lacking in the current system.
2. We use SCRUM to lead and monitor software development. As there are many parallels between the two projects, we wish to use the system from item 1 (above) for the SCRUM-execution of this project (item 2). We suggest that the students use the system in their execution of the project, in order to gain an insight in the system – and possible errors - as well as methodological problems.
Thoughts on collaboration
We are of course open to discussing other ideas that may be relevant for our development as well as your studies.
It is important that we gain something useful from the project as well as acquire an understanding of the students’ capabilities in programming, project management and complex problem solution. We are therefore going to invest time and resources in the project period and we will also offer our professional assessment of the project work – as supplementary to your academic grade.
Chymeia is a Danish company that develops software for chemical management and authoring of chemical safety documents like multilingual Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and COSHH risk assessments. We wish provide companies with tools and skills to comply with national and international chemical laws. Therefore, we have developed AlphaOmega, an intelligent and uniquely automated software for chemical management. As market leaders in Denmark our next goal is to internationalize our product as well as business plan.
