    LEARNING AND QUALITY ASSURANCE IN THE SAME PACKAGE2024In: INTED2024 Proceedings, IATED , 2024, p. 2006-2011Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The critical need for organizations to learn and change is well known. “The ability to learn faster than your competitors is your only lasting competitive advantage” as put by a HR manager. Thus, knowledge is vital, both as a resource and a competitive advantage. The importance of life-long learning and distance education is clear, just as the role of higher education. The aim of this paper is to share academic experiences and lessons learnt concerning performing high quality assessment on-line and at the same time offering a learning opportunity for both teachers and students. This is a big challenge.

    We performed a case study in an on-going hybrid course. There were 10 students on the course, all professionals and employed and hence performing the course and working at the same time. We used the final course assessment as a case unit, which was performed as structured on-line dialogues between each student individual and the examiner. Data were collected by observations of three students performing and a deep follow-up interview with the examiner responsible. Each dialogue lasted about one hour. To be eligible to participate the student must have prepared a task based on two books and questions aiming to put the literature in comparison as well as in the context of their own employment. The examiner leads the dialogue based on graduate assessment criteria, developed by the examiner. The collected data were inductively analyzed.

    The analysis reveals advantages that oral individual assessments have concerning quality assurance and at the same time enable learning. The examiner has natural opportunities to ask follow-up questions to stimulate reflections and further learning. The examiner also has opportunities to ask questions that reveal the students’ knowledge and understanding related to the assessment criteria and the syllabus learning outcomes, which is a critical aspect not at least from the perspective of AI and chat-GPT. Since the dialogues are individual, the time perspective is a matter of fact that is often lift as an argument against this type of examination. According to the examiner, this is not a problem if you take all the steps in the examination process into consideration. The total time is more or less equal compared to traditional written examinations. Furthermore, the examiner emphasizes that this form of examination is much more fun.

    To achieve both quality assessment assurance and learning, the analysis also reveals the importance of a holistic approach, as for example putting the matter of course in the students´ reality as well as the critical interface between the task and the assessment dialogue. It also strengthens the importance of preparing for both the examiner and the student and emphasizes the importance of having a system for continuous follow-up and improvements. Finally, the follow-up interview with the examiner reveals the learning it means by having someone externally observing the performance and then asking relevant questions and having a dialogue afterwards. “It forced me to think and reflect on the work from new perspectives, which is critical for future improvements” as put by the examiner. One piece of advice from the examiner is to include this type of work in the quality assurance system for course development. To reflect on the work was an important input to further increase and develop the course.

    The Development and Evaluation of an Animated Video for Pre- and Postoperative Instructions for Patients with Osteoarthritis: A Design Science Research Approach2024In: Geriatrics, E-ISSN 2308-3417, Vol. 9, no 19, p. 1-11Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Osteoarthritis (OA) is a condition in the hip or knee joints that develops during a long period of time and sometimes needs hip or knee joint replacement surgery when pain gets too intense for the patient. This paper describes how an animated video for pre- and postoperative instructions for patients with osteoarthritis was designed. The design science research (DSR) approach was followed by creating a web-based animated video. The web-based animated video is used to support surgical departments with education for patients suffering from OA. In the web-based animated video, information about OA surgical treatment and its pre- and post-arrangements was included. The relevance, the rigor, and the design cycles were focused on, with some iterations of and improvements in the animations. Even after implementation, there was a feedback-loop with comments from the surgeons and their patients. Moreover, as more departments will use the web-based animated video, they want to make their special mark on it, so that further changes will be made. This paper presents the design and successful implementation of an animated video for pre- and postoperative instructions for patients with osteoarthritis, tightly linked to the patient journey and the workflow of healthcare professionals. The animated video serves not only as a tool to improve care but also as a basis for further scientific research studies.

    How to Apply and Manage Critical Success Factors in Healthcare Information Systems Development?: †2023In: Systems, ISSN 2079-8954, Vol. 11, no 9, p. -17, article id 469Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Studies on Critical Success Factors (CSFs) in Healthcare Information Systems (HIS) development projects have traditionally often been limited to retrospectively identifying CSFs in a finished project. In this paper, we focus on how to prospectively apply and manage CSFs in HIS projects. Based on a holistic perspective and systems thinking, an inductive research strategy was applied and a single in-depth case study was conducted. The findings include detailed descriptions that contribute to further understanding of how to prospectively apply and manage CSFs in HIS projects. The analysis reveals that CSFs must be applied differently and managed on various system levels. Furthermore, it shows how interactions exist between different system levels, both in the case of a specific CSF and between different CSFs on various system levels. Our analysis framework and findings indicate new directions for future research: how to prospectively apply and manage CSFs in HIS development projects can now be investigated both in a more holistic way and more in detail. Finally, healthcare practitioners can use the descriptions as practical checklists for guiding them in how to realize situational adaptation of CSFs in HIS projects across different system levels.

    Road Haulier Competition: Implications for Supply Chain Integration2024In: Supply Chain: Perspectives and Applications / [ed] Ágota Bányai, IntechOpen , 2024, p. 1-17Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Road freight competition is playing out in deregulated markets. The EU single market is a market with abundant responses in terms of haulier strategic actions. This chapter situates the crucial role of road haulier strategies in the logistics service supply chain and industrial supply chain to achieve sustainability. Competitive and sustainable transport depends on effective transport services, vehicles and transport infrastructure, and conditions that foster the development of transport and logistics services. By examining how four case firms develop competences and make use of available resources we develop insights into road haulier competition and its implications. The chapter contributes to understanding how road hauliers are part of logistics service chains as well as industrial supply chains and how the many links and relationships increase the magnitude and implications of hauliers’ performances.

    Quantifying BIM investment value:: a systematic review2024In: Journal of Engineering, Design and Technology, ISSN 1726-0531, E-ISSN 1758-8901, p. 1-20Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose –

    Perceived benefits of building information modelling (BIM) have been discussed for some time, but cost–benefit benchmarking has been inconsistent. The purpose of this paper is to investigate BIM feasibility and evaluate investment worth to elucidate and develop the current understanding of BIM merit. The aim of the study is to propose a research agenda towards a more holistic perspective of BIM use incorporating quantifying investment return.

    Design/methodology/approach –

    An in-depth examination of research patterns has been conducted to identify challenges in the assessment of the investment value and return on investment (ROI) for BIM in the construction industry. A total of 75 research articles were considered for the final literature review. An evaluation of the literature is conducted using a combination of bibliometric analysis and systematic reviews.

    Findings –

    This study, which analysed 75 articles, unveils key findings in quantifying BIM benefits, primarily through ROI calculation. Two major research gaps are identified: the absence of a standardized BIM ROI method and insufficient exploration of intangible benefits. Research focus varies across phases, emphasizing design and construction integration and exploring post-construction phases. The study categorizes quantifiable factors, including productivity, changes and rework reduction, requests for information reduction, schedule efficiency, safety, environmental sustainability and operations and facility management. These findings offer vital insights for researchers and practitioners, enhancing understanding of ’BIM’s financial benefits and signalling areas for further exploration in construction.

    Originality/value –

    The ’study’s outcomes offer the latest insights for researchers and practitioners to create effective approaches for quantifying ’BIM’s financial benefits. Additionally, the proposed research agenda aims to improve the current limited understanding of BIM feasibility and investment worth evaluation. Results of the study could assist practitioners in overcoming limitations associated with BIM investment and economic evaluations in the construction industry.

    The Interplay Between BIM Implementation Level and Perceived Benefits: Insights from Industry Practitioners2024In: Sustainable Production through Advanced Manufacturing, Intelligent Automation and Work Integrated Learning: Proceedings of the 11th Swedish Production Symposium (SPS2024) / [ed] Joel Andersson, Shrikant Joshi, Lennart Malmsköld, Fabian Hanning, IOS Press , 2024, p. 370-382Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This research delves into the tangible economic impact of Building Information Modelling within the Swedish construction industry, with a particular focus on exploring the relationships among the level of BIM implementation, company size, and the perceived benefits derived from BIM.

    The study's methodology involved conducting a questionnaire survey, from which a dataset of 128 responses was collected for comprehensive analysis. The study's findings challenge prevailing assumptions by suggesting that the size of a company does not necessarily dictate its likelihood of implementing BIM. This contradicts earlier notions that larger companies have a more significant propensity for BIM adoption. Additionally, the research uncovers a positive correlation between higher levels of BIM implementation and the realization of greater benefits. This correlation underscores the potential of BIM in significantly enhancing construction project outcomes. By bridging empirical insights from industry professionals and a robust questionnaire survey, this study provides valuable contributions to the understanding of how BIM can improve performance in the construction sector. 

    These results emphasize the importance of considering BIM's potential benefits beyond the scope of company size and offer fresh perspectives on the dynamics between BIM implementation and perceived advantages in the construction project context.

    Digital transformation of the wood construction supply chain through building information modelling: current state of practice2023In: Construction Innovation, ISSN 1471-4175, E-ISSN 1477-0857, Vol. 24, no 7, p. 273-291Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: This study aims to present a state-of-the-art review of building information modelling (BIM) in the Swedish construction practice with a focus on wood construction. It focuses on examining the extent, maturity and actual practices of BIM in the Swedish wood construction industry, by analysing practitioners’ perspectives on the current state of BIM and its perceived benefits. Design/methodology/approach: A qualitative approach was selected, given the study’s exploratory character. Initially, an extensive review was undertaken to examine the current state of BIM utilisation and its associated advantages within the construction industry. Subsequently, empirical data were acquired through semi-structured interviews featuring open-ended questions, aimed at comprehensively assessing the prevailing extent of BIM integration within the Swedish wood construction sector. Findings: The research concluded that the wood construction industry in Sweden is shifting towards BIM on different levels, where in some cases, the level of implementation is still modest. It should be emphasised that the wood construction industry in Sweden is not realising the full potential of BIM. The industry is still using a combination of BIM and traditional methods, thus, limiting the benefits that full BIM implementation could offer the industry. Originality/value: This study provided empirical evidence on the current perceptions and state of practice of the Swedish wood construction industry regarding BIM maturity. © 2023, Lina Gharaibeh, Sandra Matarneh, Kristina Eriksson and Björn Lantz.
