Human-System Integration 7,5 CreditsHuman-system integration builds on various approaches and theories to consider when implementing human-centred design and management of industrial product realization systems (including production and logistics systems). The course adopts the systems view aiming unravelling opportunities for exploration, as well as a means to study emergence, or, to anticipate new complex system patterns of behaviour, as well as generate and support the emergence of resilience as graceful extensibility.

Course ContentsThe course provides knowledge and insights about the role of humans and organizations in the design of complex systems, regarding new technologies, people and organizations that are or will be using them, with the central issue of coordination of autonomous (or semiautonomous) agents. This also includes methods and tools to enable moving from rigid automation to flexible autonomy.
The course includes the following elements:
- Emergent functions and structures within an active system of systems
- Resilience and state-space transitions
- Work as Imagined versus Work as Actually Done
- Synetic change management
- Functional Resonance Analysis Method
- Organization-driven and Human-driven Flexibility of Sociotechnical systems
- Multi-agent co-adaptive systems
PrerequisitesPassed courses of at least 40 credits in the main field of study, Technology/Natural Science, and at least 2 years of work experience (or the equivalent). Applicants with an academic degree of at least 180 credits within a technical/scientific field are exempt from the work experience requirement.
