To determine the usability of porkCAD, we tested it with personnel from the pork industry, using two different controller interfaces, one being a traditional mouse and keyboard input, and the other a six degrees of freedom haptic feedback device. The accurate depiction of pig anatomy guided trained professionals to re-create standardized pig products using porkCAD. The quantitative results of the usability test with sales personnel did not lean significantly in favor of either interface.
Since one interface was extremely well known and the other highly unfamiliar, the fact that users did not express a clear preference for the known input modality is deemed important. We report on the observed user experience regarding the two interfaces.
