The era of Smart TVs have arrived. They’re no longer strictly used for watching TV. Instead, they offer various other entertainment purposes, with built-in browser, applications made specifically for TVs, connectivity with cameras and computers. Also they can be controlled with new ways other than the usual remote control, which includes speech-, gesture recognition, and smart phone remote applications.

In my thesis, I decided to look at the whole Smart TV world in a different point of view. Instead of looking at it’s entertainment features, I try to discover it’s usability in the industrial environment.

Having a Smart TV makes it unnecessary to own a computer for running applications. As a result, an application made for Smart TVs could be a cost efficient alternative in an industrial environment, where it’s necessary to have hundreds of workstations, because only the display is needed.

My work for this semester consists of a production support system, which involves a content management system to manage the workflows of products, and a Samsung Smart TV application that can view these information for the assigned workers.
