Background

Our brief asked us to explore the potential applications of blockchain technology to the field of inventory management. We were given 8 weeks to design and deliver “looks like” and “ works like” prototypes. I led the design aspects below with assistance from my partner Kaan, who led the back-end software development.


Phase I: Discovery

Our Discovery phase consisted of conducting stakeholder interviews and sourcing quantitative research around our topic. I then produced a series of systems maps to help us understand the space we would be intervening in.

Phase II: Concepting

Having discovered the main pain points in the inventory management space, we ideated on several potential solutions based on our earlier research. To help define which concept might be most useful, I drew out various diagrams to help define ideas, use cases, and competition.
