Everything you need to implement IoT for remote monitoring

Finalize Application Design

Decide the details of the design for your ThingWorx application. As you create a design specifications document, get input from the developers and solution architects who will build it.  

Create design specification document

Earlier in the project, you created wireframes outlining your application design. Now create a complete design that provides more detailed information on how it looks and functions. Keep in mind that styling and customization options are limited within ThingWorx.

A design specification document typically includes:

  • User interaction details: What happens when a user hovers over or taps a button, for example?   
  • Near-final copy: What words will you use for buttons, labels, and navigation elements?
  • Visual design: What color palette, fonts, and other styles will the design employ? 
  • Data needs: What data will flow into your design? Note where specific datasets are needed.

As you design, consult the developers and solution architects on your team to make sure the components of your design work together. They will use these specifications to build the application later.  

Review design specifications

Review your design specifications with project team members and stakeholders. Show how the design satisfies user requirements. Ask for feedback about whether the design fulfills the use case and appears usable. If stakeholders have concerns or questions about the design, address them before you begin development.
