Organisational Challenges Associated with Design and Implementation of Technology in Re-design Projects in the Nuclear Domain
Paper i proceeding, 2014

A complex socio-technical system needs to optimize on safety when designing the human-machine systems. The purpose of this study was to learn about organisational challenges in redesign projects in the nuclear domain. Interview results showed that stakeholders had focus on either technology driven or human factors driven design. A conclusion was that all project members need knowledge and understanding of human factors aspects; these need to be highlighted both in planning and during the whole iterative design process, where also operator involvement is crucial. If organisational challenges can be solved the resilience of the nuclear power domain may improve.
