  1. 1. Devloping a collaborative planning tool for construction - A Building Information Model-enhanced planning and scheduling tool for production

    Author : Mikael Viklund Tallgren; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Design Science; Information Technology in construction; BIM; Collaborative planning process; Construction Informatics;

    Abstract : Construction projects are becoming increasingly complex with a higher degree of specialization, resulting in more sub-contractors as well as in more information needed in the project. This results in a bigger project organization with an increased need for information exchange, an area where construction has been criticized by academics. READ MORE

  2. 2. Co-constructing Expertise : Competence Development through Work-Integrated e-Learning in joint Industry-University Collaboration

    Author : Monika Hattinger; Lars Svensson; Maria Spante; Lennart Malmsköld; Kristina M. Eriksson; Linn Gustavsson Christiernin; Anita Mirijamdotter; Högskolan Väst; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Competence Development; e-Learning design; Learning activities; Co-construction; Manufacturing industry; Expert knowledge; Knotworking; Expansive Transformation; Boundary crossing; Arbetsintegrerat lärande; Work Integrated Learning; Informatik; Informatics;

    Abstract : This thesis is inter-disciplinary and proceed from the ongoing challenges of the increased digitalization, automation and robotization that impact the manufacturing industry's emergent need of high-qualified practitioners. Digitalization also challenges universities to open up to external collaboration and to design blended e-learning targeting industry knowledge needs. READ MORE

  3. 3. Collaborative production planning with BIM – Design, development and evaluation of a Virtual Production Planning system

    Author : Mikael Viklund Tallgren; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Scheduling; Construction Informatics; Construction IT; Collaborative Production Planning; BIM;

    Abstract : Construction projects have for a long time been characterized by increased specialization, low productivity, and a fragmented information exchange culture, resulting in inefficient work processes, with time delays and budget overruns. Research within the context of construction planning and scheduling and IT points to improving communication, collaboration, and cooperation to address these problems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Knowing and the Art of IT Management. An inquiry into work practices in one-stop shops

    Author : Sara Eriksén; Institutionen för informatik; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; systems theory; Informatics; IT management; one-stop shops; public service; Knowing; work practice; Informatik; systemteori;

    Abstract : New information technology is developing faster than the models, metaphors and methods in use for conceptualizing the sharing and managing of information in organizations, in communities and in society in general. The way we utilize information technology today does not seem to succeed in supporting the everyday work practices through which organizations accomplish their work. READ MORE

  5. 5. Prometheus at the wheel : Representations of road transport informatics

    Author : Oskar Juhlin; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Ethnography; engineering; representational practice; testing; technical demonstration; constructivism; road transport informatics; intelligent transportation systems; situated practice; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN;

    Abstract : The dissertation deals with the challenge of developing information technology for road transport, a field often referred to as Road Transport Informatics. Oskar Juhlin studies in particular how engineers cope with the contingent and social aspects of the design process and of road use. READ MORE
