Since this was for a physical space, we tested our panel designs by placing them in a series of staging areas. The first of these were in our office, with a simulation of the retail space with actual TVs and print outs of the designs over circuit boards. Through continual testing we refined the design and placement of buttons and instructions. The next step was to visit the production facility where the SIS would be built to test with a full size and functional prototype. Here our designs were tested within the real space. Refinements were made for the actual size of the panels after they were manufactured. This lead to a redesign of several multi-tiered audio panel interfaces whose intent was to test out several audio options at one time.
After this testing and some additional quality assurance, the SIS went into full production and our designs are now live in 660 Best Buy stores nationwide.
