1 00:00:00,420 --> 00:00:02,420 So, what was the solution that you went with? 2 00:00:03,020 --> 00:00:06,940 Well, let's go through some of the options and we'll figure out which one is the best. 3 00:00:07,670 --> 00:00:09,930 We could put up a sign next to the badge reader. 4 00:00:10,510 --> 00:00:12,610 The sign would be descriptive. 5 00:00:12,880 --> 00:00:16,180 It could be a nice laminated sign or even a sticky note 6 00:00:16,180 --> 00:00:19,500 that tells people to use this badge reader to open the door over there. 7 00:00:20,860 --> 00:00:23,170 But that's doesn't help the people who come to the door 8 00:00:23,630 --> 00:00:25,790 and don't see the sign or the badge reader. 9 00:00:26,760 --> 00:00:30,620 There's still a miscommunication here and it's still not usable. 10 00:00:31,620 --> 00:00:33,620 Now, we could put the sign next to the door 11 00:00:33,900 --> 00:00:36,540 that tells people to use the badge reader across the hall; 12 00:00:37,490 --> 00:00:39,520 however, the sign could be lost. 13 00:00:39,570 --> 00:00:41,970 People could have trouble finding the badge reader. 14 00:00:42,650 --> 00:00:44,800 Still, it's not the best solution 15 00:00:45,210 --> 00:00:49,480 and clearly, doing nothing is not going to help this confusing situation. 16 00:00:50,090 --> 00:00:53,410 In this case, the ideal option is to move the badge reader 17 00:00:53,690 --> 00:00:55,930 and put it next to the door that it controls. 18 00:00:56,760 --> 00:01:00,700 The idea here is that the proximity of the 2 objects 19 00:01:01,400 --> 00:01:04,110 will create an association that people will easily understand. 20 00:01:04,629 --> 00:01:06,900 They'll know that one thing controls the other. 21 00:01:07,700 --> 00:01:12,130 So, in this case, that's the solution we want to go with to improve usability.
