    Organizational learning in inter-organizations2007In: PROCEEDINGS OF THE 4TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON INTELLECTUAL CAPITAL, KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT AND ORGANISATIONAL LEARNING, 2007, p. 37-43Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To work against threats and to obtain new possibilities, new forms of inter-organizational collaborations are formed. Established models of organizational control are insufficient to cope with the management of such complex situations. In inter-organizations there is also a need to foresee and act upon future events. The management literature deals mainly with one single organization although aspects of collaborative processes are discussed. The human challenges of virtual team membership are: Creating effective team leadership; Managing conflict and global virtual teams dynamics; Developing trust and relationships; Understanding cross-cultural differences; Developing intercultural communication competence. Organizational learning is recommended as a tool to in the first place develop an intercultural communication competence, but also as a complement to learn more about each other. To develop organizational learning within an organization has shown to be successful. The question is how to transfer the concept to inter-organizations. The viability of an inter-organization is depending on the ability to work as a team, learn from each other and adapt to new situations. To maintain and develop the knowledge and to prevent conflicts and misunderstanding organizational learning is an excellent approach. New or adapted models suited for inter-organizations needs to be produced. In this paper problems and possibilities with inter-organizational management and organizational learning are discussed.

    Team syntegrity as a complementary method for requirements analysis2010In: The International Multi-Conference on Complexity, Informatics and Cybernetics, International Institute of Informatics and Systemics, 2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When developing complex system and systems that will work in a complex situation, or a complex environment, there is an enhanced problem to capture the information needed. It is critical that the system provides the users with as relevant information as possible. The traditional ways to capture information and to involve the users may sometimes be insufficient. All aspects of the intended system may be hard to capture and there might also be a problem to bring different opinions of what is important into line with each other.

    Team Syntegrity is a new process methodology developed by the management cybernetics Stafford Beer to stimulate collaboration and incite cross fertilization and creativity. The driving force behind the development of syntegration was to provide a structure for holding purposeful conversations which would be non-hierarchical and democratic but would be contained and not dissipate their energy or insights.

    As a way to catch what should be included in a complex system and to join possible split pictures that are present, Team Syntegrity could be a helpful complementary tool. In this paper the possibilities with using Team Syntegrity in preparation for the development of a complex system is presented. As an example a system for training for crisis situations is used.

    The Viable Systems Model and Inter-organizations2007In: Metaphorum 2007 Conference: March 9th and 10th 2007, University of St Gallen, Switzerland, 2007Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To work against threats and to obtain new possibilities, new forms of inter-organizational collaborations are formed. The management literature deals mainly with one single organization although aspects of collaborative processes are discussed. In this paper problems with inter-organizational management and decision-making are discussed. In this paper the possibilities and the limits of using the Viable System Model (VSM) for diagnosing and design of inter-organizations are discussed. The conclusion is that VSM seems to be promising but further evaluation must be performed. Organizational learning and negotiation support systems are approaches that should be used in inter-organizational management.

    Transforming Tourist Systems by Systemic Artefacts2003In: Proceedings of the 47th Annual Conference of the International Society for the Systems Sciences, 2003Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Tourist systems, including marketing of, transportation to and events in a well integrated tourist region, are facing new challenges due to, among other things, changes in peoples life styles, that makes people wanting more information and adventure. Improvements of information technology makes it possible to provide new kinds of information systems as well as new adventures based on technology. For example, in addition to or in stead of advertising leaflets, 3D Internetbased services that mediates what you are going to experience, a feeling of presence at the tourist resort already when entering the transportation system, clothes and equipment with some intelligence. However, in order to implement this new type of tech adventure services, a set of problems and hindrances are to be overcome. We must, for example, find solutions for people with disabilities and we must find simple and usable solutions for the integrity and security problems. Further, this is not only a technical problem. Seen in a systemic way, technological changes must be balanced with changes in human competence, organisational structures and procedures and, at last, changes in organisational culture and doctrines.

    Visualization of data quality in decision-support systems2007In: International journal of applied systematic studies (IJASS), ISSN 1751-0597, Vol. 1, no 3, p. 280-289Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    When designing a decision-support system, much effort is made to find the best fitting models and to examine which data to include and which algorithms to use. However, the error propagation involved in poor data quality can deteriorate dramatically the accuracy of the output results. The user of the system is often unaware of the weaknesses and deficiencies in data quality. In this paper, analysis and evaluation of data quality is discussed. Further, the paper introduces visualisation aids into the system to help augment our awareness of the underlying data quality in decision-support systems and guide our focus of attention.

    Applying Anticipatory Computing in System Dynamics2001In: Computing anticipatory systems: CASYS 2000, fourth international conference, Liège, Belgium, 7-12 August 2000, Melville, N.Y: American Institute of Physics , 2001, p. 578-589Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A traditional System Dynamics Model is compared with an Anticipatory Soft Computing Approach. A system for control and management of water resources and hydro electrical power stations is used as a real world test case. The System Dynamics Model is easily developed and run with help of commercial, special purpose modelling and simulation software. The resulting model increases understanding and generates new insights. Its lack of anticipatory power, however, makes the control task difficult. With the anticipatory approach, on the other hand, the control becomes more effective even if the modelling and model complexity increases rapidly than applied on a reasonable big and realistic real world case. Strong Anticipation, as compared to the more traditional Weak Anticipation, has proved itself to have many interesting and powerful properties.

    Creative Anticipatory Spatial Modelling for Intra Regional Simulation2004In: COMPUTING ANTICIPATORY SYSTEMS / [ed] Dubois, DM, Mellville, N.Y: American Institute of Physics , 2004, p. 533-543Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Current models and tools for support in spatial intra regional design, planning, and management may generally be judged as being too descriptive and too reactive. Hence, due to their rigidity and focusing on system history, they have severe shortcomings in guiding decision-makers in current decision situations, which are characterized by increasingly high degrees of uncertainty, unperceptibility, and change. Therefore, in order to improve the conditions for decision-makers, a conceptual design of a new tool, the MAP-tool, for support in such work is presented. MAP is designed around the conceptual integration of anticipatory modelling and computing, multi modal system modelling, soft computing, and spatial modelling and computing

    Multi modal anticipation in fuzzy space2006In: AIP Conference Proceedings, New York: American Institute of Physics , 2006, Vol. 839, p. 442-452Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We are all stakeholders in the geographical space, which makes up our common living and activity space. This means that a careful, creative, and anticipatory planning, design, and management of that space will be of paramount importance for our sustained life on earth. Here it is shown that the quality of such planning could be significantly increased with help of a computer based modelling and simulation support tool. Further, the design and implementation of such a tool ought to be guided by the conceptual integration of some core concepts like anticipation and retardation, multi modal system modelling, fuzzy space modelling and simulation, and multi actor interaction.

    Abstract [en]

    Decisions in planning and design of spatial systems express an extra high complexity, dimensionality, and uncertainty. Hence, such decisions are best supported by fuzzy visualisation of the involved variables and their interdependencies. With this approach a fuzzy man-machine system is proposed for spatial negotiations

    Simulated Decision Learning in a Multiactor Setting2010In: Organizacija, ISSN 1318-5454, Vol. 43, no 3, p. 136-145Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The idea of decision analysis-and subsequent learning from the outcomes-is old within Operational Research. Here this approach to continuous improvement of decision outcomes is put one step further within the area of crisis and disaster management. This is done by introducing multiactors making simultaneous decisions with just partial information about each other. Further, decision outcomes are achieved from a simulation model rather than from the real object system.

    Complexity Challenges of Regional Planning and Design: Paper presented at the 11th Annual ANZSYS Conference/Managing the Complex, Christchurch, December 5 - 7, 2005.2005Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Spatial planning, i.e. planning and design of our common geographical space, is normally supported by different types of computerised planning tools. Today those tools, however, are porely fitted to meet the complexity challenges of spatial planning. Here it is found that the spatial complexity is a multidimensional super complexity. Main dimen-sions are Actor and Negotiation Complexity, Process and Structure Complexity, Space Com-plexity, Using Complexity, and Tools Complexity. However, complexity research has already produced a range of conceptual tools. With help of the Spatial Complexity Model it is demonstrated in what way those tools may be used to cope with the complexity challenges, i.e. the complexity dimensions, of spatial planning. Hence, by using the Spatial Complexity Model as a launching platform for the design of future support tools the expectations for a better complexity handling ability in spatial planning will increase.

    Decision support functions embedded in GIS2001In: Nordic GIS Conference in Helsinki, 8-10 october 2001, 2001Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The value of any GIS will be greatly improved if embedded with a proper decision support. In this way it will be possible to have the GIS supporting in complex and tricky, multi criteria decisions regarding for example the best localization of new constructions and activities. The common way of doing this is by help of overlays, one overlay for each criteria or variable of importance for the decision. This procedure, however, has already proven itself to have severe drawbacks as it is restricted to the binary rule of a logical AND operation. In this way an infinitesimal failure in one criterion may rule out an otherwise perfect alternative. With an approach based on Fuzzy Logic and Soft Computing, on the other hand, both trade offs between variables and flexible AND-OR rules may be put to use. The so called OWA-procedure is demonstrated to meet those criteria common in real life situations. However, OWA does not solve all problems and further requirements on a spatial decision support are identified.

    Complexity Challenges of critical situations caused by flooding2005In: System thinking and complexity science: proceedings of the 11th ANZSYS/Managing the Complex V Conference (held in Christchurch, New Zealand, 5th-7th December, 2005), 2005Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In case of flooding many authorities and organizations become involved and there is a problem to take in the whole situation and have a common picture when many incidents happen at the same time. There is also a lack of efficient tools showing critical buildings and constructions in combination with actual and forecasted water-levels. When handling critical situations we are facing challenges of complexity, uncertainty, and unpredictability. Such management- and decision activities are normally supported by some kind of models and support tools. However, complexity is normally not explicitly addressed in such models and tools. In this paper we analyse and discuss different kinds of complexity, which are a challenge in critical situations caused by flooding.

    Multi-actor dimensions and cross system levels considerations in spatial decision support2001In: Management, economy, social and socio-technical systems modelling, simulation, optimisation and control in engineering computer logical models and web-internet applied systems: Partial Proceedings of the Fourth International Conference CASYS 2000 on Computing Anticipatory Systems, Liège, Belgium, August 7-12, 2000, ISSN 1373-5411, p. 32-45Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The spatial dimension of human settlements and establishments raises special decision problems in planning situations. Often there are multitudes of different criteria that have to be considered. Real world phenomena, in opposite to phenomena of an idealised mathematical or abstract world, are often vague, contradictory, and incomprehensible. Further, decisions about our physical environment often are of a multi criteria nature. We have in earlier research developed and tested the Ordered Weighted Average Procedure (OWA-procedure) for decision support in complex localisation decisions in physical planning outgoing from the basic methodologies for a multi criteria fuzzy decision support that already have been developed. However, the OWA-procedure in its current form is not able to capture the full complexity of most real decision situations. Some shortcomings of the OWA-procedure are its inability to consider several interesting parts and combine criteria from different system levels. For example, a location which is very suitable for an individual land owner or establisher may have severe drawbacks from the point of view of others stakeholders or even the whole community. In order to make OWA more suitable for those common situations the prototype is extended with functions for averaging between different value sets and cross level impact analysis.

    New approaches to soft anticipatory design for spatial decision support systems2002In: International Jounal of Computing Anticipatory Systems, ISSN 1373-5411, Vol. 13, p. 170-181Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The human management of geographical space is far from perfect. Factors that aggravate the situation may be found in the planning and decision support systems applied for managing decisions and actions concerning geographical space. A majority of those support systems are based on the reactive paradigm (Rosen, 1985) and the classical two-valued logic of an abstracted and idealised world (Kosko, 1993). So far, modern research in anticipatory computing, fuzzy logic and soft systems design unfortunately has not, to any significant extent, been applied in geographical management systems. The purpose of the work, reported in this paper, is to present some ideas for a model for management of common regional resources, based on anticipation, soft systems design and systemic spatial modelling.

    Simulation and anticipation in critical situations caused by flooding2005In: CASYS´05, Liege, 2005, Liége: CHAOS , 2005, p. 28-36Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Globally flooding is one of the natural catastrophes that every year causes most victims and the greatest economical effects. In Sweden and other European countries death caused by flooding is relatively unusual, but the damages in tangible assets and the cost for the society are considerable. In case of flooding many authorities and organizations become involved and there is a problem to take in the whole situation and have a common picture when many incidents happen at the same time. There is also a lack of efficient tools showing critical buildings and constructions such as roads, railroads, water-purifying plant, etc, in combination with actual and forecasted water-levels. In this paper we discuss anticipation of critical factors to be included in a model for visualization of situations caused by flooding.

However, the error propagation involved in poor data quality can deteriorate dramatically the accuracy of the output results. The user of the decision support system is often unaware of the weaknesses and deficiencies in data quality. In this paper analysis and evaluation of data quality is discussed. Further, the paper introduces visualisation aids into the decision support system to help augment our awareness of the underlying data quality in decision support systems and help in guiding our focus of attention.

    Abstract [en]

    Flooding is a natural occurrence and no drainage systems or flood protection measures can give an absolute protection from all flooding events. The impact of flooding on a community and the health and safety risks are significant. Globally flooding is one of the natural catastrophes that every year causes most victims and the greatest economical effects. In Sweden and other European countries death caused by flooding is relatively unusual, but the damages in tangible assets and the cost for the society are considerable. In case of flooding many authorities and organizations become involved and there is a problem to take in the whole situation and have a common picture when many incidents happen at the same time. There is also a lack of efficient tools showing critical buildings and constructions such as roads, railroads, water-purifying plant, etc, in combination with actual and forecasted water-levels. In this paper we discuss how the critical factors can be visualized in the CRISSI system. The complexity challenges according to the laws of complexity are also considered.

    Abstract [en]

    Globally flooding is one of the natural catastrophes that every year causes most victims and the greatest economical effects. In case of flooding many authorities and organizations become involved and there is a problem to take in the whole situation and have a common picture when many incidents happen at the same time. Established models of organizational control are insufficient to cope with the management of such complex situations. In this paper we will discuss, from a systemic management perspective, model requirements for management of flooding situations where several independent organizations have to collaborate. Simulation techniques are used as a research method throughout the project. We conclude that the CRISSI simulation system or at least its principles should be relevant for the international bodies. The system has an open design so it is adaptable and can be characterized as an adaptable and learning system.

    Multi-actor dimensions - Problems to handle in spatial decision support MicroCad2002In: International Computer Science meeting 2002, Miscolc, Ungern, 2002Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The spatial dimension of human settlements and establishments raises special decision problems in planning situations. Often there are multitudes of different criteria that have to be considered. Real world phenomena, in opposite to phenomena of an idealised mathematical or abstract world, are often vague, contradictory, and incomprehensible. Further, decisions about our physical environment often are of a multi criteria nature. We have in earlier research developed and tested the Ordered Weighted Average Procedure (OWA-procedure) for decision support in complex localisation decisions in physical planning outgoing from the basic methodologies for a multi criteria fuzzy decision support that already have been developed. However, the OWA-procedure in its current form is not able to capture the full complexity of most real decision situations. For example, in most real world situations, decisions in connection with competition, negotiation, time etc needs to be made. To be able to handle multi-actor decision situations, tools for visualization of the spatial situation to decide on, such as 3D modeling and Virtual Reality, in addition to fuzzy decision support is needed.

    Teknikinformationscentrum: Samverkan mellan akademi och företag för forskning och utbildning2009In: HSS09: Högskolor och samhälle i samverkan, 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Teknikinformationscentrum är ett forsknings- och utvecklingsprojekt som fokuserar på tek­nisk information. Teknisk information är all den dokumentation som behövs för att använda, utföra service och reparera en produkt, t ex bruksanvisningar, reparationshandböcker, serviceanvisningar. Pro­jektet drivs av Mittuniversitetet i nära samarbete med Försvarets materielverk (FMV) och ett tiotal företag som producerar teknisk dokumentation i stor omfattning. Projektet syftar till att etablera en kunskapsnod inom Teknikinformations-området. Projektet arbetar dels med frågor runt TI-före­tagens kompetensbehov och kompetens­försörjning dels med framtidssäkra stan­darder, rutiner och tekniker för behovsstyrd TI-produktion. Två studier har gjorts med syftet att undersöka vilka krav som ställs på teknikinformation respektive vilket kompetensbehov som finns för att arbeta med att producera dokumentationen.

    Några av de företag som deltar i projektet har teknisk dokumentation som affärside och producerar dokumentationen till andra företag, medan övriga företag producerar dokumentation till sina egna produkter. Deltagande företag är konkurrenter på marknaden, men har gemensamma problem och har därför funnit att det finns fördelar med att ingå i ett gemensamt projekt. Den frågeställning som behandlas i detta papper är hur konkurerande företag kan samverka och dra nytta av att delta i ett gemensamt forsknings- och utvecklingsprojekt.

    Abstract [en]

    The idea of anticipatory modeling and simulation with subsequent learning from the outcomes is here applied on inter regional security work. In this setting, multiactors have to both cooperate and make coordinated decisions with just partial information about each other. With help of netAgora, a net based environment for simulation, learning, and communication, the goal of training, preparedness and  continuous improvement of decisions is met.

    Preparing for Emergency Situations2010In: COMPUTING ANTICIPATORY SYSTEMS / [ed] Daniel M. Dubois, American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2010, p. 179-188Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Disaster relief can be seen as a dynamic multi actor process with actors both joining and leaving the relief work during the help and rescue phase after the disaster has occurred. Actors may be governmental agencies, non profit voluntary organisations or spontaneous helpers comprised of individual citizens or temporal groups of citizens. Hence, they will vary widely in agility, competence, resources, and endurance. To prepare for for disasters a net based Agora with simulation of emergency situations for mutual preparation, training, and organisational learning is suggested. Such an Agora will ensure future security by: –Rising awareness and preparedness of potential disaster responders by help of the components and resources in the netAgora environment; –Improving cooperation and coordination between responders; –Improving competence and performance of organisations involved in security issues; –Bridging cultural differences between responders from different organizations and different backgrounds. The developed models are intended to reflect intelligent anticipatory systems for human operator anticipation of future consequences. As a way to catch what should be included in this netbased Agora and to join the split pictures that is present, Team Syntegrity could be a helpful tool. The purpose of Team Syntegrity is to stimulate collaboration and incite cross fertilization and creativity. The difference between syntegration and other group work is that the participants are evenly and uniquely distributed and will collectively have the means, the knowledge, the experience, the perspectives, and the expertise, to deal with the topic. In this paper the possibilities with using Team Syntegrity in preparation for the development of a netbased Agora is discussed. We have identified that Team Syntegrity could be useful in the steps User Integration, Designing the netAgora environment, developing Test Scenarios, and assessment of netAgora environment.
