    Användbarhetstester i ERP-system: för ökad användbarhet efter konfigurering2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Business system or ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) is moving toward developing into so -called global systems. The systems’ functionality should be adapted to the businesses’ and users’ needs. Thus the notion of usability becomes essential.

    Usability of ERP systems is a limited research area. At the same time, it is widely known that ERP-systems’ user interface is a complex issue, which affects usability in a negative way for the users. To investigate the usefulness of usability testing methods can be applied. This was also something that was implemented in the current study when SSAB EMEA wanted to test the user interface usability of the new ERP system that is planned to be implemented soon.

    The study's research questions were: How experienced ERP system users its usefulness? and, How can usability tests be helpful in the configuration of the user interface of an ERP system?. The purpose of this study was to create a deeper understanding of how usability testing can be helpful before configuring the user interface of an ERP system, so that users perceive it useful. A case study was conducted through group interviews and usability tests, where ten users participated.

    The results were analyzed and presented using five usability criteria for ERP systems. Firstly, Navigation shows that users felt the system navigator with folder structure as difficult while shortcuts in the form of icons and links were seen as something positive. Learnability shows that users experienced in the previous system IFS7 found it easy to learn the new system IFS8. Users who lacked previous experience, however, experienced problems and frustration when the system required no obvious commands to perform tasks. Following guidance, also these users experienced that the system was easy to learn. Presentation shows that all the users were positive about the possibility of adapting the user interface along their own work role and how their selves operate. The system's adaptation to the users and the business, Customization, shows that the users were positive towards the system shortcuts in the form of icons and links to activities. Additionally, the users were positive about the prefilled data which were based on the logged in user. Finally, the Task support shows that users requested help functions that already existed in the system, but that was not noticed by the users.

    The implications of the study come to create a deeper understanding of usability in IFS8. This helps to SSAB EMEA, can configure the user interface for enhanced usability. In addition, the study indicates that users are in need of an organized training in the system before it is deployed, in order to enable them to conduct their activities in a satisfactory manner.

    Resan mot Sydneys operahus alternativt chips, öl och spela rock: En kvalitativ studie om hur aspirerande artister beskriver sina drömmar med musiken2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Som aspirerande artist är det ett nålsöga att infria sina drömmar med musiken, många försöker

    men desto färre lyckas. Syftet med denna kvalitativa studie är att undersöka hur aspirerande

    artister beskriver sina drömmar med musiken. Studien ämnar dessutom besvara huruvida

    genretillhörighet upplevs korrelera med hur drömmarna beskrivs. För undersökningen har åtta

    aspirerande artister intervjuats där hälften är pop-artister medan andra halvan består av

    alternativa artister (punk och indie). Forskningsresultatet visar att pop-artisterna i regel

    beskriver större drömmar än de alternativa artisterna. Samtliga respondenter delade dock

    drömmen om att kunna livnära sig på musiken. Däremot tenderade pop-artisterna att drömma

    om större summor pengar än de alternativa artisterna som istället nöjde sig med att kunna

    försörja sig på sitt artisteri. Mellan genrerna delades även viljan att ta musikkarriären så långt

    som möjligt. Resultatet visar dock att det mellan respondenterna råder delade meningar

    huruvida genretillhörighet korrelerar med hur de beskriver sina drömmar. Hälfterna av popoch

    de alternativa artisterna upplevde att genretillhörighet haft en påverkan medan övriga

    respondenter var osäkra eller inte reflekterat över genretillhörighetens påverkan.

    Idé och innovation2012Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Present thesis is to deepen the current knowledge about the concept anddevelopment of ideas of innovators and the potential small businesses in ruralareas has to adopt innovation and new technology. The thesis is limited tostudying the process itself and the progression from concept and development ofideas for invention and innovation to market and customer.The research questions include: What motivates an inventor to innovate? Howto practice innovation in small companies? How are innovators approach toproblem solving? What opportunities exist for small businesses in rural areas toadopt innovations and new technologies?The thesis also discusses on the one hand innovators approaches to motivationand attitude and on the other hand, how ideas are selected and then developed inthe process and progression in the author via the invention to market andcustomer innovation. In the present thesis has been both quantitative andqualitative approach, based on behavioural research.Important conclusions from this thesis is: that the innovation process should bedeleted and recorded by the (basic) idea and author; innovator must remain in thedevelopment of ideas with complementary and alternative ideas, innovationprocess, the progression from idea to innovation should be based on a ʺbottom upʺperspective, where the patent law “previous user rights” supports innovatorsinvolvement in the process and progression

    Inventor motivations to go from idea to innovation?2011In: Ergonomis for all: Celebrating PPCOE's 20 Years of Excellence / [ed] Lin, Dyi-Yih Michael, Leiden: CRC Press , 2011, p. 461-464Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of present paper is to describe the motivations that underlie the choices made by inventors in the development of their technologies. These classifications can help managers of innovation programs direct sparse resources to inventors with the greatest probability of commercial success. The categorisation motivation to go from idea to innovation and commercialisation of new technologies is presented for inventors for the small business in rural area of Sweden. The main results showed least eight different inventor motivations.
