Analysis of similar UI
After analyzing the system requirements , a clear similarity can be drawn between the APM and other automated service machines in other industries . Such similarity can be seen in the Prompt Base operation of the user interfaces ,loading in between input actions and their linear form of operations . So with such similarities noted , an analysis was carried out on Automated Bank Teller Interfaces . The main goal is to identify functionalities that are worth adopting .

User flow
With my persona and system requirements at the forefront of my mind, I developed a user flow for 6 key tasks. These included, Connecting USB ,Choosing file or folder and Choosing print configuration
Below is a flow for what seemed like the most important feature for our users, based on insight gained from the system requirements . Printing a Document on APM.
