This paper deals with experience and problems about research, project development with industry for IT solution design development. It is well known that design plays an increasingly important role in our daily lives. The University of Latvia and Joint Stock Company “Latvia’s State Forests” within the framework of an effective collaboration projects program are developing joint research project. Partner was interested in development of an automatic volume measurement of logs and wood chip loads on trucks. To solve this problem, a methodology and a technological solution are needed to allow remotely perform volumetric surveys and monitoring. It is significant with the intense development of forest and logging industry. The system consists of measurement arch with video cameras and IT solution - video processing and analysis software, a graphical user interface, data communication channels and storage systems. When designing the timber assortment measurement line in field conditions, the specifics of its operation and high-performance requirements should be considered. Therefore, a laboratory prototype was made to evaluate arch size and size of its field of operation, the best cameras and light layouts. Was studied human experience in timber assortment manual measuring for better understanding IT solution design development. Graphical user interface design is developed taking into account the specific requirements of the partner - the integration of the indicators for the determination of the quality, as well as the easy to operate functionality in the geometric measurement process.
