First of al the original inspiration for these “Golden Rules” Series are based on the “20 GOLDEN RULES FOR REPOSITORY DESIGN” from the people at Peak Indicators. Kudos to them. I just added my own observations.
The series contains:
- RPD-Physical Layer
- RPD-Business Model Layer
- RPD-Presentation Layer
- Report Building
- Dashboard Building
- Catalog management
The “rules” is this article are somewhat in random order
This is really a work in progress, will be updated soon! (Bit pressed for Time )
- Don’t crowd the dashboard
Divide your report over several pages! Check why a user really needs 25 pages…..
- Avoid scrolling
Remember that your developers screen is often bigger then the user screen
- Check for screen size
If the user has only a 1024 * 768, then make your own resolution the same!
- Check for mobile
Before you start using non standard colours have a look a some colour theory: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color, not every colour combination does well…..
This is always a “work in progress” and please feel free to make any suggestions!
Till Next Time!
