MIFLEX is a research project of the German Federal Environmental Agency (Umweltbundesamt), conducted by ENDA in collaboration with the Department of Design of the Fachhochschule Potsdam (FHP) and binfort GmbH. The project FKZ 3711 94 237 is entitled "Expanding the usability of the tools and electronic process chains of the European and German PRTR - helping to reduce bureaucracy, by improving information and interaction, reducing complexity in the user management of the DV- Systems and the reduction of redundant data retention and data collection"

Central research tasks

  • Creation of a concept for the reduction of complexity of the user interaction, through the identification and formulation of possible role-based entry points to the reporting portal BUBE-Online with the parts
    • Development of a task-oriented and self-explanatory navigation and interaction concept for BUBE-Online
    • Optimization of the usability of the user interface, e.g. Through role-based entries, complexity gradations, wizards, etc.
    • Creation of a state-of-the-art form design for interactive web and e-government applications
    • Conception of a modern visually-aesthetic screen design for BUBE-Online, taking into account corporate design elements for the online-media of the Umweltbundesamt
  • Modularization of the internal technical data model of the application BUBE using the components identified and described in the project XUBetrieb and development of a concept for the modular extensibility of the data-model BUBE
  • Development of XML schemas to improve data flow during import / export via XML interfaces using the XÖV-certified standard Xdrive
  • Substantive support to the European negotiation process by introducing ideas and visions to standardize data flows and proposals for the design of process chains with the aim of unification / approach / use through the definition of data modules and, where appropriate, participation in meetings at European level
