Interactive Design Techniques

AS3 Clinic Designer

AS3 Medical Clinic Designer

Interactive Multimedia application programmed with Flash using the Action Script 3 (AS3) platform. The project was developed for a medical industry focus group exploring optimal designs for new medical clinics.

Groups of physicians were instructed to create their ideal clinic by selecting rooms, personnel, and equipment from scrolling lists of 3-D images. Once the rooms were selected, equipment and personnel could be placed by dragging and dropping to simulate an optimal medical clinic design.

The data grid on the right keeps track of the items, quantity, and type (Room, Personnel, etc.). The physicians were allowed a limited point system to work within, and the points represented a set budget.


Clinic Designer Instructions

When the game page opens, fill out your name and click two or three check boxes showing the different options. This will launch the game board, and all of the items are in horizontal scrolling lists at the bottom.

First add some rooms by clicking them, and then personnel and equipment is added by clicking a thumbnail and then releasing your mouse button. This will attach the thumbnail to your cursor so you can move it over one of the rooms, and then click again to place the item where you want.

You can also view the output screen in the lower right corner to see all of the data.
