    A case is made for active evaluation of the finished product by the end-users, where studies of an experimental nature are carried out in order to collect information from the end-users about the product after release. Rubin (1994) viewed these studies as primarily for the collection of data for the next product release, and stated that follow-up studies are probably the most accurate appraisals o...

    This paper presents an overview of the work currently being carried out in the analysis and redesign of a major piece of software. The software is used to model the catchment and behaviour of the water system, and is used for planning and analysis by civil engineers, hydrologists, and water authorities. It is based on the parameterisation and solution of a model, in which the components of the mod... View full abstract»

    Torbert has proposed eight stages of personal development that an individual manager may go through based on ideas of ego development in the field of psychology. He extended these to cover the development of the organisations. I think that it is useful at this stage in the development of information technology to try to extend this thinking to the development of information systems. I present a ta... View full abstract»

  • A production sequencing advisor in an anthropocentric manufacturing cell

    During a production period, members of an anthropocentric manufacturing cell will have an agreed workload to process. The sequence in which this workload is processed by the resources in the cell can effect the ability of the cell team to meet their targets. Within a manufacturing cell, there may be many ways in which work on resources can be sequenced. It is recognised that there are many schedul... View full abstract»

    Considers how many organisations see the sales function as a totally disconnected activity from manufacturing; the expectation of the sales department is that production will manufacture whatever they have succeeded in securing orders for, in whatever time scale they have needed to agree with the customer to secure the order. Manufacturing is then often perceived to be the cause of all the organis... View full abstract»
