#radAF

AF CyberWorx has released the #radAF tag to show its focus on accelerating human-centered solutions which best resolve Air Force problems. When warfighters have problems fulfilling their duty, the Air Force mission is in trouble. To mitigate this, AF CyberWorx puts the warfighter first as the ultimate user of each solution to Air Force problems. RAD reflects how to best meet and exceed the needs of the user:

Resolve – Each problem can be stated in terms of the basic needs of the user. The user needs must be resolved.

Accelerate – Once the right problem is identified, a rapid solution is needed. AF CyberWorx accelerates the process to a rapid solution concept.

Deliver – Developing the concept is only one piece of the puzzle. Potential challenges and necessary policy and procedure changes are identified to outline a path to solution delivery.

About Those TPS Reports!

Anyone familiar with the cult classic Office Space will immediately recognize the TPS report. In the movie, the TPS report represented a comedic nod to the ubiquitous report generator common to pretty much every office software system. But while they are common, report generators are one of the most poorly designed tools in the UX domain.

A recurring sprinkler control problem for large spaces (parks, ball fields, etc.) involves adjusting the sprinkler schedule to accommodate special events. A 3-day baseball tournament requires more than just shutting off the water for 3 days. Watering at night makes the field soft and susceptible to damage, so that’s not an option, either.
