This would require some testing to verify how effective it might be. Have the rolls dispense paper in opposite directions. I.e. one roll dispenses paper from the bottom, one roll dispenses paper from the top. There may be a bias in people's use of the two different configurations that would meet the requirement sufficiently. If the test proved that there was ...

The English example above isn't a "menu" - it's a numbered list of arbitrary foods arranged alphabetically. It wouldn't make sense as a "menu" in a restaurant even in English. A customer who wants a sandwich would likely be confused/frustrated trying to find all the various sandwich options scattered alphabetically across the page. Since people don't tend ...

Since it is a menu, you can group the dishes by the way they are cooked. If you have different menu for breakfast/lunch/dinner, you can order the the menu by the types first and then the way they are cooked. It may be better to keep the popular ones at the top, and mark them as popular, so more customers will order them. In my opinion, you don't necessary ...

I think it depends on the type of restaurant, the type of customers and the variety of dishes that you have. Some of the reasons why these are important considerations are: You can order by the cost if people are price conscious/sensitive You can group and order by the type of dishes (e.g. breakfast, lunch, dinner, all-day, entree, dessert items) if the ...

As I saw your english menu I don't see a point of sorting in Chinese word. So you could simply put the words in ordering of their meaning in english. One more thing if their was a category too then you could have arranged your food item category wise similarly Chinese words would be categorised in that way. Rest your phonetic order sounds good.

ATM software is generally written by the bank, whereas ATM hardware comes from a very limited set of manufacturers like NCR. As ATM hardware improves, the same software is deployed on many different device form factors often at once; some are old-school (like the ones you refer to in the question) with the buttons running down each side of the screen, and ...

A couple of ideas you could implement without remodelling the dispenser: 1.1 - A paper "seal" around the new roll I've seen this in many hotels: new rolls are "sealed" with a paper stripe around them: I guess hotels do that for at least a couple of reasons: show the guest rolls are new; (maybe?) at the same time reduce the amount of only partly used ...

Buttons down the edge are old technology and I suspect they'll all be replaced by touch screens before too long and this problem will go away.

CWS offers a system where you can only access the second roll if the first roll is completely used. It has a plastic slider system that covers the new roll. If the oldest roll is completely used the empty roll fits in the slider, therefor the "user" can move the slider over the oldest roll, thus uncovering the new roll. The custodian can open de system and ...

Place a small easy to remove sticker over loose end of one roll [and onto dispenser to fit] that says Please use other roll first Success rate will depend on how anti-social your average user is. A/B test against a large plain hard to remove sticker that also blocks removal easy removal of one roll.

2 simple solutions from my perspective: Without remodelling the dispenser Are the 2 rolls fixed next to each other? If yes, then make sure they are at separate places. Eg: If both the rolls are fixed at left or right of the toilet, then it's natural tendency that the user will go for the one with more paper. Now imagine, we have one fixed on the left ...
