Discover and design for a feedback system user interface

Livestock Data Link (LDL) is an online feedback system which is managed by Integrity Systems Company (ISC) that enables the timely sharing of carcase and animal disease information between processors and their producers with the aim of supporting the optimisation of supply chain performance. LDL links carcase data from the National Livestock Identification System (NLIS), Meat Standards Australia (MSA) and the central Animal Health databases with analytical tools, benchmarking reports, and the Solutions to Feedback library.

Recently the LDL platform has undergone a review. The feedback system will now shift from being a single product to a program of services to meet the needs of various users.

The LDL product will be transformed into a minimal viable product to focus on delivering core feedback datasets for producers, whilst enabling demonstrations of other value propositions for commercial products and platforms to adopt.

Previous and current project design and development work should be acknowledged in contributing to the current product, however, to truly meet the needs of our diverse user experiences and needs we require a human centred design approach to overhaul the current product design and capture the core needs of an intuitive feedback system user interface.

Applications must be lodged electronically as a Word document to along with other requirements of this terms of reference.

Applications must be received by 5pm AEDT on Thursday 22 April 2021.
