Sociotechnical Trust: An Architectural Approach [chapter]

Amit K. Chopra, Elda Paja, Paolo Giorgini
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Current approaches in sociotechnical systems consider trust to be either cognitive-referring to actors' mental models of each other-or technicalreferring to an actor's trust of a technical artifact.  ...  Our principal claim is that sociotechnical systems are essentially specified in terms of architectural trust.  ...  This requires that we capture sociotechnical trust in an architectural sense as a relationship among roles in the system. When specific actors adopt the roles, those relationships are instantiated.  ...

An assessment method for system innovation and transition (AMSIT)

Marc W. Bos, Erwin Hofman, Stefan Kuhlmann
2016 International Journal of Foresight and Innovation Policy  
Drawing on these concepts and on the hypercube of innovation, we suggest, as an ex ante approach, the assessment method for system innovation and transition (AMSIT).  ...  The technological innovation system approach is useful for the retrospective study of the conditions for success or failure of innovation trajectories, and the multilevel framework helps to understand  ...  However, the MLF is less informative on the specific roles of the different actors within the different levels. This complicates operationalisation and use of the concept.  ...

Normative Multi-Agent Systems (Dagstuhl Seminar 15131)

Amit K. Chopra, Leon Van Der Torre, Harko Verhagen, Serena Villata, Marc Herbstritt
2015 Dagstuhl Reports  
Normative systems are systems in the behavior of which norms play a role and which need normative concepts in order to be described or specified.  ...  A normative multi-agent system combines models for normative systems (dealing for example with obligations, permissions and prohibitions) with models for multi-agent systems.  ...  We demonstrate these Reaction RuleML 1.0 capabilities with our proof-of-concept implementation, the Rule Responder agent architecture and the Prova 3.0 rule engine.  ...

Characterizing Business Models for Digital Business Through Patterns

Paul Beynon-Davies
2018 International Journal of Electronic Commerce  
A pattern in practice consists of a collection of specific actions undertaken by specific actors in specific places and at specific times.  ...  Pattern comics lie somewhere between formal specification approaches such as BPMN (Business Process Model and Notation) for process modeling [96] and informal specification approaches such as a written  ...

The concept of 'IT artifact' has outlived its usefulness and should be retired now

Steven Alter
2014 Information Systems Journal  
Someone talking about a sociotechnical system should talk about that sociotechnical system, or might use some other term that has specific associations, such as organizational routine, activity system,  ...  Someone talking about a model should talk about that model, not a model artifact.  ...

Advanced interaction media in nuclear power plant control rooms

Lucas Stephane
2012 Work : A journal of Prevention, Assesment and rehabilitation  
This paper proposes a Safety-Centric approach for gathering the Design Rationale needed in the specification of such novel AIM concepts as well as their evaluation through user tests.  ...  Based on the proposed split, novel design concepts are categorized as follows: The output of the Design stage is composed of: the sociotechnical model in terms of governance, architecture, structure and  ...  models x run simulations SpecTRM will be used for guiding the specifications of the novel design options as the main requirements management model and toolkit.  ...

Deriving Design Knowledge Graph for Complex Sociotechnical Systems Using the AIA Design Thinking

Tao Shen, Chan Gao, Yukari Nagai, Wei Ou, Fazlullah Khan
2021 Mobile Information Systems  
The approach uses an optimized convolutional neural network to accomplish two tasks: building concept graph from text and stimulating design thinking information processing for complex sociotechnical system  ...  )-Interaction (relation)-Adaptation (concept) framework.  ...  In this research, we also use BERT to identify name entities related to architecture design concepts. Relation extraction is even more challenging than NER.  ...

ReuseECOS: An Approach to Support Global Software Development through Software Ecosystems

Rodrigo Pereira dos Santos, Cl'udia Maria Lima Werner
2012 2012 IEEE Seventh International Conference on Global Software Engineering Workshops  
It was observed that SECO concepts can be merged in a broader GSD approach in SE industry.  ...  So, GSD requires linking an architectural, a business and a social-based environment in an integrated way, as well as a focus on SECO-based management and engineering.  ...  Also, agile methodologies and specific software quality models such as MPS Model can create opportunities to generate a large SECO from a set of micro, small and medium companies [14] .  ...
