  1. 1. User-Centred Systems Design Designing Usable Interactive Systems in Practice

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Bengt Göransson; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; user-centred systems design; usability; human-computer interaction; system development; user involvement; usability design; SOCIAL SCIENCES Statistics; computer and systems science Informatics; computer and systems science Information technology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Statistik; data- och systemvetenskap Informatik; data- och systemvetenskap Informationsteknologi;

    Abstract : Have you ever been frustrated with that IT system at work that does not behave the way you expect it to? Or had problems with using the features on your new mobile phone? When systems and appliances do not support us in what we are doing, and do not behave the way we expect them to, then usability is neglected. Poor usability may be frustrating and irritating when trying out your mobile phone, but in a critical work situation poor usability may be disastrous. READ MORE

  2. 2. Situated Reflexive Change User-Centred Design in(to) Practice

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Elina Eriksson; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; user-centred design; user-centred systems design; organizational change; sensemaking; reflexivity; practice;

    Abstract : Technology used in the Swedish workplace is perceived to be controlling, gener- ally still difficult to use, and with a low degree of usability. Even though the field of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) has been concerned with researching different ways of developing usable systems for at least half a century, there seem to be problems with the diffusion of the results into practice.

  3. 3. Human Centred Design for Maritime Safety: A User Perspective on the Benefits and Success Factors of User Participation in the Design of Ships and Ship Systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Nicole Almeida Costa; [2016]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; domain knowledge; co-design; design decisions; participatory design; maritime safety.; sociotechnical systems; integration; participatory ergonomics; user centred design;

    Abstract : For over six decades, Human Centred Design (HCD) has been considered a desired design approach for the implementation of Human Factors/Ergonomics (HF/E) knowledge and methods for understanding the needs of the end-users. Although other comparable frameworks exist, they can be seen as subcategories or as tools for HCD, as HCD is considered by some as an overarching approach. READ MORE

  4. 4. Distributed Participatory Design in Multidisciplinary Engineering Projects: Investigating a Sustainable Approach for Ship Design & Construction

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Steven Mallam; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; User-Centred Design; Naval Architecture; Ergonomics; Built Environment; Maritime; Industrial Design; Knowledge Transfer; Technology Acceptance;

    Abstract : Naval architecture design procedures focus primarily on the technical aspects of engineering specifications, mission requirements and overall survivability of ships and marine structures. In contrast, often little attention or importance is placed on the operational demands of onboard crew and the detailed design characteristics of a ship’s work environment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Anthropometric diversity and consideration of human capabilities Methods for virtual product and production development

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Erik Brolin; Högskolan i Skövde.; Högskolan i Skövde.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Technology; Teknik; User Centred Product Design; Användarcentrerad produktdesign; Ergonomics; Human Factors; Anthropometry; Multi-Dimensional; Diversity; Digital Human Modelling; Simulation; Visualisation; Workplace Design; Product Design; Accommodation;

    Abstract : Contemporary product and production development is typically carried out with the support of computer tools where the design of products and workstations are originated and evaluated within virtual environments. Ergonomics addresses factors important to consider in the product and production development process to ensure a good fit between humans and the items being designed. READ MORE
