Emerson CSI 2140 Machinery Health Analyzer Case Study

Combining advanced technology and in-depth user research to develop a next generation portable machinery health analyzer.

Strategy: Conducting numerous interviews with users helped the M3 team gain valuable insight about how features should be prioritized to maximize efficiency. M3 was also able to understand the impact of extended use, and how the accessories to the device work together to create a system.

Concept: Based on feedback from users, M3 was able to develop a simplified interface within a ruggedized and easy to hold housing. Additional attention was paid to strap integration and the design of the strap itself.

Development: Several rounds of prototypes were created to validate the design and ensure that the final concept addressed the initial user feedback and strongly represented the Emerson brand.
