Representation of complex situations
Decision-makers often discuss alternative solutions and open problems in project meetings or coordination rounds. In such discussions it is important that all participants are able to grasp the complex situation with the different levels of content, the temporally intertwined events and boundary conditions "at a glance".
These meetings require decisions with a major impact on operations and must be made in a short time. In our work, a video wall has proved its worth as a front end for a clear picture of the situation combined with a specialised moderator's workstation.
A high-resolution video display enables all participants to share a view of the current situation. A moderator uses his workstation system to present the prepared alternative solutions and records the desired actions and their prioritisations for all to see.
