  • KomInDu A Small Project about Big Issues
  • 2004
  • Konferensbidrag (refereegranskat)abstract
    • In this short paper, we present glimpses from an interdisciplinary research and development project aimed at enhancing local democracy by developing ICT support for the consultation process around the comprehensive plan of a municipality. For the participating researchers, the project offered the opportunity of combining and comparing approaches and methods from two different design traditions that share democratic ideals and ambitions of nurturing citizen/user participation in design processes. This proved to be more challenging than we had originally anticipated. Differences in perspective gave different interpretations of the design context as well as of how participatory the processes actually were.

  • Educational programs in e-government - An active, practice- and design-oriented network?
  • 2004
  • Ingår i: 3rd International Conference on Electronic Government (EGOV 2004) : Conference Proceedings. - Berlin : Springer Berlin/Heidelberg. - 3-540-22916-7 ; s. 457-459
  • Konferensbidrag (refereegranskat)abstract
    • In the autumn of 2004, two higher educational programs in e-government will be starting up at Blekinge Institute of Technology in Southern Sweden. One of these is a Master’s level program, while the other is a more basic, two-year vocational education. Each will be the first of its kind in Scandinavia, and both will be offered as net-based distance education. The interdisciplinary group of researchers/teachers now developing the courses for these educational programs, in co-operation with several other research groups in Scandinavia, see this co-construction of distance education as the beginning of an active Scandinavian network of competence around higher education and ongoing research and development in the e-government area. We are currently exploring the possibilities of using distance education in this area as a way of networking around on-going e-government research and competence enhancement in Scandinavia. The Scandinavian tradition of Participatory Design, as well as ideas about e-government as constantly ongoing co-construction, have inspired us in our work with developing the new educational programs. A reference group consisting of representatives from a number of municipalities and various government agencies plays an important role in this work.

  • What Have We Learned from the TANGO Arena for Regional Cooperation Around e-Government in Southern Sweden?
  • 2004
  • Ingår i: Electronic Government : Third International Conference, EGOV 2004, Zaragoza, Spain, August 30-September 3, 2004. Proceedings. - Springer : Springer. - 978-3-540-22916-2 ; s. 156-163
  • Konferensbidrag (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The TANGO e-government arena is a project in Southern Sweden, funded by the Innovative Actions of the European Regional Development Fund. The project is now nearing its end, and we are thus at the stage of reflectively reviewing what has actually been accomplished and how this relates to the original goals of the project. In July 2002, when the project began, the aim was to establish cooperation between the public sector, private enterprise and university-based research in designing public e-services. In cooperating around development of new, integrated services, catering to various categories of users as well as to a growing diversity of mobile technologies, we have aimed towards establishing feedback channels between practice and theory, between use and design, and between different academic disciplines where we see a need to synchronize the models and methods we work with. Our research questions have focused on exploring and managing multi-perspectivity as a resource for design. In this paper we look at how we organized our cooperation around these goals, and attempt to address those basic summing-up-the-project questions; How well have we succeeded? What have we learned in the process?

  • Developing Quality through Measuring Usability--The UTUM Test Package
  • 2007
  • Konferensbidrag (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Artikeln presenterar ett sätt att bygga in användningskvalité i mjukvara och mjukvaruprocesser, genom att använda ett testpaket för mobiltelefoner. Testpaketet är ett resultat av ett långt samarbete mellan industrin och akademin. Den påvisar användbarhet med hjälp av mätningar av användarhetsaspekter, som kompletteras med testledarens subjektiva bedömning. Artikeln är baserad på tester som har utförts parallelt i två länder. Vi har funnit att testet har fungerat i en komplicerad industriell miljö med komplicerade förhållanden mellan kunder, partners och slutanvändare. Användbarhet, mätningar, kvalité, UTUM

  • Examining Correlations in Usability Data to Effectivize Usability Testing
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: e-Informatica Software Engineering Journal. - Wroclaw University of Technology Press. - 1897-7979. ; 5:1, s. 25-37
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Based on a case study performed in industry, this work deals with a statistical analysis of data collected during usability testing. The data is from tests performed by usability testers from two companies in two different countries. One problem in the industrial situation is the scarcity of testing resources, and a need to use these resources in the most efficient way. Therefore, the data from the testing is analysed to see whether it is possible to measure usability on the basis of one single metric, and whether it is possible to judge usability problems on the basis of the distribution of use case completion times. This would allow test leaders to concentrate on situations where there are obvious problems. We find that it is not possible to measure usability through the use of one metric, but that it may be possible to gain indications of usability problems on the basis of an analysis of time taken to perform use cases. This knowledge would allow the collection of usability data from distributed user groups, and a more efficient use of scarce testing resources.

  • Identifying organizational barriers-A case study of usability work when developing software in the automation industry
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: Journal of Systems and Software. - Elsevier. - 0164-1212. ; 88:February, s. 54-73
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This study investigates connections between usability efforts and organizational factors. This is an important field of research which so far appears to be insufficiently studied and discussed. It illustrates problems when working with software engineering tasks and usability requirements. It deals with a large company that manufactures industrial robots with an advanced user interface, which wanted to introduce usability KPIs, to improve product quality. The situation in the company makes this difficult, due to a combination of organizational and behavioural factors that led to a "wicked problem" that caused conflicts, breakdowns and barriers. Addressing these problems requires a holistic view that places context in the foreground and technological solutions in the background. Developing the right product requires communication and collaboration between multiple stakeholders. The inclusion of end users, who fully understand their own work context, is vital. Achieving this is dependent on organizational change, and management commitment. One step to beginning this change process may be through studying ways to introduce user-centred design processes.

  • Law, knowledge and mobility in local planning
  • 2004
  • Konferensbidrag (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Interpretation of the law is important in the administrative decision-making process in local municipal planning, which is a co-operative process. Local mobility also plays an important role. A study of work practice highlights the need to take this into account when designing support for decision-making processes.

  • Meeting organisational needs and quality assurance through balancing agile and formal usability testing results
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: Lecture Notes in Computer Science. - Springer. ; s. 275-289
  • Konferensbidrag (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This paper deals with a case study of testing with a usability testing package (UTUM), which is also a tool for quality assurance, developed in cooperation between industry and research. It shows that within the studied company, there is a need to balance agility and formalism when producing and presenting results of usability testing to groups who we have called Designers and Product Owners. We have found that these groups have different needs, which can be placed on opposite sides of a scale, based on the agile manifesto. This becomes a Designer and a Product Owner Manifesto. The test package is seen as a successful hybrid method combining agility with formalism, satisfying organisational needs, and fulfilling the desire to create a closer relation between industry and research.
