Application designed to increase efficiency and accuracy at a warehouse packing station
Designed at Manhattan Associates (2015)
Time efficiency is key in the e-commerce world with very competitive ETA’s offered by companies like Amazon. The existing green screen UI's are cumbersome to function with and warehouses are looking at higher process efficiency. Hence, this project came to be!
The most valuable take-away from working on this project was a much deeper understanding of SASS based component styling using Sencha. I used the rule based styles and mixins available with Sencha extjs to develop two themes (light & Dark) for the application. These were integrated by the development team into the source application code, while keeping the SASS document external for easy modification of themes. Collaborating closely with developers helped me fully understand the challenges and possibilities of using the Sencha as a front-end UI framework.
Following are snippets of design documentation I produced to communicate within and across teams.
