    Sammanfattning : Design practices are to a large degree conceptually and methodologically based in ways of designing rooted in the 20th century. Some of the challenges that arise in contemporary design stem from an unawareness of design’s historicity, and the discrepancies between what design methods and concepts once were made to handle, and what we presently try to apply them to.

  2. 2. User-Centred Systems Design : Designing Usable Interactive Systems in Practice

    Författare :Bengt Göransson; Jan Gulliksen; Anders Hektor; Liam Bannon; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; user-centred systems design; usability; human-computer interaction; system development; user involvement; usability design; Information technology; Informationsteknologi;

    Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER

  3. 3. The Significance of Things: Affective User-Artefact relations

    Författare :Viktor Hjort af Ornäs; Viktor Hiort af Ornäs; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; User experience; User-centred design; Significant consequences; Significant use; Significant things; User-centred desig; Technology; Teknik; User Centred Product Design; Användarcentrerad produktdesign;

    Sammanfattning : Products help people act, but also thrill, excite, and elicit fear, joy and anger. Artefacts are a natural part of people’s everyday lives, sometimes associated with values, dreams and aspirations. While traditional user-centred approaches have focused on efficiency and effectiveness of use, injury prevention etc. LÄS MER

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

    Författare :Elina Eriksson; Jan Gulliksen; Anna Swartling; Netta Iivari; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; user-centred design; user-centred systems design; organizational change; sensemaking; reflexivity; practice;

    Sammanfattning : 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.

  5. 5. Usability – Who Cares? : The Introduction of User-Centred Systems Design in Organisations

    Författare :Åsa Cajander; Jan Gulliksen; Inger Boivie; Bodil Jönsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; User-Centred System Design; UCSD; Human-Computer Interaction; HCI; Usability; Perspectives; Sensemaking; Communities of Practice; Action research; Interpretations; Organisational change; Work environment; IT systems development; Datavetenskap med inriktning mot människa-datorinteraktion; Computer Science with specialization in Human-Computer Interaction;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis analyses the difficulties encountered in the promotion of usability, especially in relation to occupation health issues, when developing IT systems in a public authority. It examines what happens when User-Centred Systems Design (UCSD) approaches are introduced to organisations with in-house systems development for their employees. LÄS MER
