ARCHER: Collaboration for Excellence

ARCHER: Collaboration for Excellence

AF CyberWorx and the Extreme Digital Development Group Enterprise (EDDGE) teamed up to tackle Project ARCHER virtually despite the challenges of COVID-19. The magic of the dream UX team wove together active duty end users and creators of the original tool into a working group for an incredible experience.

This event was a great opportunity to experience what Human Centered Design is all about first-hand! EDDGE first reached out to AF CyberWorx to see how we could collaborate in an event, and they soon responded with an opportunity to empower software-enabled innovators.

The design process we went through really helped us understand the pain points and what part of the tool was making the process frustrating. We went through many exercises that allowed the team of end users, trainers, and developers understand the functionality that the ARCHER team wanted.

Within one week of being assembled as a team, we took off! We were able to power through the design phase with a clear understanding of the requirement. The EDDGE team couldn’t be more excited to work with Captain Chris “Archer” Fry and the CyberWorx team to get this product developed and out to help our people!

We look forward to continuing to provide our experienced software developers to sharp Airmen to come up with products that are USEABLE and maintainable. Virtual or in person, the collaboration with AF CyberWorx for Project ARCHER was a BLAST!
