Description & Coverage
Description:

Industrial informatics as a field is currently expanding beyond improving the manufacture of goods to facilitating every aspect of the process, from after-market sales, to service production, sourcing, and e-maintenance, demonstrating the profound impact of informatics in modern society.

Industrial Informatics Design, Use and Innovation: Perspectives and Services establishes not only a sound grounding in industrial informatics but it also provides a broad state-of-the-art review and showing connections and gaps in the current knowledge for researchers working in the field today. This compilation also represents guidance to those who design and use information technologies in industrial settings, and making it easier to create an informed basis for decisions.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Heterogeneous systems
  • Human agency in industrial informatics
  • Infrastructure evolution in the process industry
  • Interactive architectures
  • Organizational and geographical borders
  • Outsourcing partnerships
  • Streamlining production
  • The ecology of innovation
  • Ubiquitous services in practice
  • Warehouse digitalization

Editor/Author Biographies
Jonny Holmström is a professor of Informatics at Umeå University, Sweden. Professor Holmström’s larger research program has examined how organizations innovate with IT, in particular how they adapt to using technological innovations such as decision support systems, knowledge management tools, and groupware applications. He is currently investigating how organizations in the process industry sector can develop sustainable competitive advantages through mindful use of IT. He has published his research in journals such as Information and Organization, Information Systems Journal, Information Resources Management Journal, Information Technology and People, Journal of the AIS, Journal of Global Information Technology Management, Journal of Information Technology Management, and Scandinavian Journal of Information Systems.
Mikael Wiberg, PhD is an associate professor at the department of Informatics at Umeå university in Sweden. From this position he teaches, supervises PhD students, and leads and conducts interaction research in several of his research projects in collaboration with industry partners including e.g. Google, Ericsson, Philips and ICEHOTEL. At the department of Informatics Wiberg is also program director for the Masters programme in Human Computer Interaction. Since 2008 Wiberg is also the Research Director at UID - Umeå Institute of Design (swe: “Designhögskolan”) at Umeå University and manager for Umeå Design Research Group at UID. Wiberg has served as the main supervisor for several PhD students, and in his own research, mostly focused on mobile interaction, the emerging interaction society, interaction design and interactive architecture, he has published his work in a number of international journals, including ToCHI, HCI, BIT, IJACI, IEEE Network, HumanIT, etc. and he has also published his work in books (including his role as editor for the book “The Interaction Society”, and author of the forthcoming book “Interactive Textures for Architecture and Landscaping: Digital elements and technologies”). He has also published his work in encyclopedias, as book chapters, and in international conference proceedings with peer review systems. Wiberg has served as chair, reviewer, organizer, associate editor, and session chair for a number of international conferences (e.g. full paper session chair at CHI´04). Last year, 3-5 Dec ´08 Wiberg served as general conference chair for MUM´08 – 7th international conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia in cooperation with ACM SigMobile (this year, MUM´09 is organized by Microsoft research, Nokia research and University of Cambridge, UK). Wiberg is also associate editor for ISJ - Information Systems Journal.
Andreas Lund received his Doctoral degree in Informatics in 2003 at Umeå University. He holds a position as lecturer, teaching on a broad range of topics including human-computer interaction, programming, open source and 3D computer graphics for post-production. Currently, Andreas is involved as a researcher in Umeå Center for Open Source Solutions (UCOSS, http://www.ucoss.se/). UCOSS aims at developing collaboration around open source in the Bothnia region. Andreas main interest in open source is as a venue for exploring the notion of craftmanship, quality and making in the context of information technology.
