OICL field study handbook

The foundation to our approach is the use of field studies as a central part of human-centred design process. Ocean industry leaders acknowledge that designers need an onsite comprehension of complex operations and tasks that ranges across systems and varied conditions. Field studies play a critical role in acquiring contextual, systems-oriented and human-centred knowledge from demanding operations. With the OICL field study handbook, our ambition is to share our experience with planning, performing and analysing field studies.
