Abstract [en]

This master´s thesis consists of two parts. The first part is a study where the possibility to use existing tools from the market is assessed. The second part describes the design, development and usability test of a web based hardware configuration tool. The usability test made in the design process, was made in order to remove common usability problems and to assess whether or not the design decisions made during the thesis were good. The usability test that was performed followed the think aloud method and gave me very useful information that helped me improve the tool.

The study that was made in the beginning of the thesis was done in order to see if there were any programs on the market which already did the required tasks or could be adjusted to do them. I could not find a satisfying alternative amongst the five alternatives investigated. This lead to the decision to design a new tool. The main functions are the ability to save the current state the hardware is in, and at a later stage load this configuration back.

The tool was designed for the PRAN unit at Ericsson AB, in Linköping, Sweden.
