Abstract [en]

PurposeThis paper presents findings from a qualitative study of healthcare professionals’ practice, where learning is taking place when a digital artefact is implemented for identification of patients’ cognitive impairment. The use of digital artefacts is increasing in various workplaces, to include professionals in healthcare. This paper aims to explore the following research question: How is the professional learning unfolding in patient-based work when a digital artefact transforms the practice?

Design/methodology/approachVarious data collection methods are used for this study, consisting of dialogue meetings, interviews and a reference-group meeting. Thematic analysis is used to inductively bring forth the themes of the collected data.

FindingsProfessionals’ knowledge and experience are of vital importance in learning and changing work practices. Together with their ability to reflect on changes, their knowledge and experience constitute the prefiguration when the introduction of a digital application brings about indeterminacy in the work practice.Originality/valueThis paper makes a contribution to practice-based research as it consolidates previous research and identifies professionals knowledge and learning in a healthcare context. This can be used to further explore and advance the field, as well as to establish the evidence-based importance of transforming practices based on implementation of digital artefacts.

Abstract [en]

Digital technology is becoming ubiquitous and embedded as an integrated part of our daily lives, in which the digital and the physical worlds are increasingly interconnected and intertwined. While advanced technology can provide tremendous benefits and opportunities, it can also be very complex and challenging to understand, potentially leading to fear, suspicion, and distrust. This paper investigates a case of human-robot interaction in cooperative manufacturing, focusing on understanding how operators, managers and viewers feel about cooperating with industrial robots using potentially dangerous tools like nail guns. The aim of the study is to identify how human reactions to technology-induced change can be understood. The research question is: how can different trigger points of fear or distrust in technology be understood in the context of human-robot interaction? The findings reveal three key factors in overcoming fear, creating trust and encouraging interaction: knowledge, control, and self-preservation. The main contribution is illustrated through suggested guidelines for aspects that have to be practically considered when building this type of flexible robot cell for interacting with industrial robots in a real setting.

Abstract [en]

Since the beginning of time, humans have been fascinated and intrigued by new technology, but also frightened of its implications. In the 1980s, Chao and Kozlowski [1] studied the introduction of fully automated lines in mass-production industry, and identified different fear factors influencing the workers willingness to change their work process. This study is more than 30 years old, however their insights are still relevant and tends to become even more important with the introduction of complex technology like ubiquitous and embedded systems, AI, big-data, and collaborative technology [2]. This rapid and ongoing digital transformation will have fundamental implications for the way we organize work and for how we design work processes and production system, not only in the manufacturing industry but in all parts of the working life, including the healthcare sector, schools, service, logistics and society ingeneral. It is also likely to influence and challenge roles and relationships and require new constellations of expertise and professional domains [3, 4]. In this paper, we compare experiences from practice in the manufacturing industry and health  care domains and try to identify how fear of technology-induced change can be turned into trust, through knowledge exchange, competence development, and inclusive project management. In line with [1] we have identified four main fear factors related to digital transformation, in both the industrial context and the healthcare organization:

  • Fear of losing one's job
  • Fear of new, unfamiliar tasks and expectations
  • Fear of change in general but in group relations and roles in specific
  • Fear of the actual technology

The number of manual jobs is decreasing; contrasting feelings of responsibility and loss of control are common when adapting to new conditions in a new work environment; new workplace technology maychange traditional practice and there by lower the autonomy and power of the professions; and new machines could cause physical injury or, with a digital system, lead to security threats, loss of data, orthe sense of intrusiveness [2, 3]. Our studies found, some what contra intuitive, that workers with no or limited knowledge about the technology in use experience less fear. While workers with experience of the technology they interact with, tend to have more fear, and require a larger sense of control to be able to trust the system. We suggest that each of these fears can be addressed and linked to work integrated learning strategies to turn the fear of technology into digital trust by giving the worker tools for better control. Through collaborative competence development and inclusive workplace learning, different solutions can be explored to create conditions for trust.

Abstract [en]

Small enterprises face multiple and complex challenges when developing digital technologies. The aim of this article is to explore the role of sustainable innovation in small enterprises in relation to the ongoing transformation of the primary healthcare sector. The purpose is to gain understanding of innovation processes within the framework of sustainable development, applied to a local primary healthcare center. Data were collected through seven semi-structured interviews. A qualitative thematic analysis was conducted. Five themes appeared in relation to the ongoing transformation of the primary healthcare sector: (1) The process of sustainable innovation in a long-term perspective; (2) the companies’ views on innovations in healthcare; (3) effects of innovations in healthcare; (4) sustainable product or service development, and (5) the role of collaboration in the innovation process. The companies expressed a positive attitude to new innovations, as a natural part of developing the companies. The article concludes that incremental development of tools in small businesses supports the transformation of processes and services in the primary healthcare sector. Cross-disciplinary teams in collaboration facilitates the necessary learning and the required creation and sharing of knowledge.

Abstract [en]

Key performance indicators (KPI) are used to monitor process performance, and to motivate and give clarity of priorities for employees. Although important, KPI:s may have drawbacks in the way that they represent the real performance. The purpose of this study is to develop the unit cost KPI. The new KPI discount for the volume influence on the KPI. Secondly, control charts tool found in statistical process control (SPC) theory is used to give indication to if the cost variation is within statistical control. The proposed method is validated on real data from 16 different cases in a major manufacturing enterprise. © 2020 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.

Abstract [en]

In this paper, we describe early work on a classification model on how to interact with industrial and other types of robots. We suggest a classification for how to describe different scenarios within Human-Robot Interaction. The idea with this model is to help when identifying the gap between where a company is and where they would like to be when it comes to collaborative automation. © 2017 Author.

Abstract [en]

When investing in new manufacturing systems, many aspects must be taken into consideration to ensure a sustainable business. In respect to the financial aspect, both the one-off investment cost and the continuous operational cost must be analysed to ensure that the life-cycle cost perspective is appreciated. However, one detail in the cost analyses that is often overlooked is the composition of fixed and variable cost elements. These details are important to be able to better manage the risk of market demand volatility, and accordingly make appropriateinvestment decisions. This case study demonstrates that when there is a low risk for reduced market demand, investing in a manufacturing system with low variable cost is favourable. However, if there is a high risk for reduced market demand, the importance will instead be to have a low fixed cost, as this will be the dominant cost factor.
