Client: DSTAN / Ministry of Defence (MoD)


Proposal document with prototype website

Impressed with the success of a previous project, the MoD commissioned a scoping study to explore methods of managing and working with defence standards and standardization. The brief was left particularly vague, as the client did not wish to set any boundaries in defining the end solution. The only caveat was that it had to be online. Over a four-week period six workshops of rapid prototyping with a variety of potential users were carried out, defining user journeys and personas in order to establish a set of requirements on which to base a prototype website.

In answering the brief the proposed website provided a platform on which its users could search, create, and manage defence standards; but also more importantly it allowed them to create templates which could be shared across the community. Allowing standards to be created and edited via the website meant wherever those standards were used they would be automatically updated - notifing owners at the same time. This completely removed the existing task of having to manually search for newer standards - a task which usually took a number of weeks.
