I'm starting this thread with a somewhat unusual request. I'm a part-time university following a course called Communication & Multimedia Design. It's about designing and developing user friendly webpages and interfaces, based on proper research. I'm working on my graduation project at this very moment, which centers around interfaces used in yacht engine rooms.
To be able to come up with some good designs, I need to have an insight in the actual users of these interfaces and their work. And this is where you, as visitor of workonaboat.com, come in. I would be very honoured if you could help me with this part. It would involve answering some questions about your work, your experience and your wishes. To make things perfectly clear: I will *not* ask you any details regarding your current vessel or previous ones. I'm only interested in general experiences. Any sensitive information regarding you or the vessel you work on will not be asked for, nor will they published (since I know some information already, of course). Your response, identity and situation will remain completely anonymous.
The survey is geared towards yacht engineers, as it is their job I wish to make easier through this project. I've made a form on Google Docs, which can be filled in by just visiting the webpage I linked to below.
Thanks for your time, Max Steenbergen https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dGVHVmVZTk1wTUdXWnZMY252TkRTZ0E6MQ#gid=0
