Abstract

The goal of this project was to recreate the Planar Mechanism Kinematic Simulator (PMKS), a legacy Silverlight application, as a modern desktop application with additional features. The recreation, named PMKS+Desktop (PMKS+D), contains user interface elements and functionality adapted from PMKS and PMKS+, a previous recreation of PMKS. The team used modern desktop development tools and software to create PMKS+D to ensure the longevity of the application. By conducting evaluations to test the user interface and our new functionality, the team was able to demonstrate that PMKS+D has improved upon both the functionality of PMKS and the user interface experience of PMKS+.
