The Handbook of Global User Research
59,99 € *

User research is global - yet despite its pervasiveness, practitioners are not all well equipped to work globally. What may have worked in Nigeria may not be accepted in Russia, may be done differently in Brazil, may partly work in China, and may completely fail in Kuwait. And what often goes less noticed, but can be equally vexing are technical, logistical and planning issues such as hiring qualified translators, payment procedures, travel issues, setting up facilities and finding test participants. The Handbook of Global User Research is the first book to focus on global user research. The book collects insight from UX professionals from nine countries and, following a typical project timeline, presents practical insights into the preparation, fieldwork, analysis and reporting, and overall project management for global user research projects. Any user experience professional that works on global projects -- including those new to the field, UX veterans who need information on this expanding aspect of user research, and students -- will need this book to do their job effectively. Presents the definitive collection of hard won lessons from user research professionals around the world Includes real-world examples of global user research challenges and provides approaches to these issues Contains anecdotes and hard-won from the field that illustrate actionable tactics for practitioners User research is global - yet despite its pervasiveness, practitioners are not all well equipped to work globally.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Computer Science - Commercial Information Technology, grade: 1,3, University of Frankfurt (Main) (Institute of Information Systems), language: English, abstract: The Information Systems (IS) research discipline is undergoing a serious identity crisis, seeking its sphere of activity to be relevant in practice and rigorous in scientific considerations. One reason for this is the strengthening of the Design Science approach. This new discipline developed as a synergy from aspects of engineering, architecture, and industrial design and is employed in the design of IT artifacts and software systems. Design Science is becoming a powerful trend in IS research (Vahidov 2006). It gives the IS discipline a new and more detailed focal point as pertains to the application of software and IT artifact development which is growing in importance in IS research over the time (Weber 2003; Orlikowski and Iacono 2001; Cross 2001). IS practitioners ask for new and innovative design approaches, dealing with the evolving organizational and inter-organizational tasks. The way these tasks are executed, in close cooperation with the practical business world, seems to be insufficiently considered. The debate in IS research is carried out between traditional scientists and the knowledge-producing researchers/practitioners and ´´it could be argued that research aimed at developing IT systems, at improving IT practice, has been more successful and important than traditional scientific attempts to understand it´´ (March and Smith 1995, p. 252). IS researchers are mainly focused on the behavioral impact of new IT solutions within a business unit. These concepts are needed to describe the relationship between the humans and the technology. However, this way of conducting research is descriptive and evaluative. Instead of telling ´´what is´´ or ´´what will be´´, Design Science is giving guidance as to ´´how to do´´ things (Walls et al. 1992). The importance of this new approach is given through the rapid development of business needs and the increased necessity to solve business problems through the implementation of IT solutions. The knowledge base for designing new solutions has not yet been fully developed. IT consultants borrow knowledge from reference disciplines and apply this knowledge to present problems. This way of providing solutions is not compatible with Design Science as an area of research. A relevant design approach needs to give new answers to phenomena thus far unsolved. However, the IS discipline has not yet established a solid groundwork for Design Science within its discipline.

27,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Leicht verständlich und praxisorientiert behandelt das vorliegende Buch die wesentlichsten Gebiete der Linearen Optimierung, einem Kernbereich des Operations Research. Es wendet sich an Studierende betriebswirtschaftlicher und technischer Disziplinen. Aber auch der Praktiker aus kleinen und mittelständischen Unternehmen wird in hohem Maße davon profitieren. Da kaum mathematische Kenntnisse vorausgesetzt werden, fällt es gerade ihm leicht, sich selbstständig in die Lineare Programmierung einzuarbeiten, die erhebliche Kostensenkungen und Zeiteinsparungen ermöglicht. Auch Studierende der Mathematik und der Informatik werden durch das Buch angesprochen, da sie sehr schnell einen Überblick über die Lineare Programmierung gewinnen können. Kurz und prägnant, dabei vollständig und mathematisch exakt, werden die Methoden hergeleitet, rezeptartig zusammengefasst, durch zahlreiche Beispiele und Übungsaufgaben ergänzt und mit zwei Fallstudien aus der betriebswirtschaftlichen und technischen Praxis angereichert. Nicht zu vergessen die softwaretechnische Umsetzung der Linearen Programme mittels Excel-Solver bzw. der Programmiersprache C. Dieses Buch ist ein Muss für jeden, der in die Thematik der Linearen Optimierung einsteigen möchte.

Introducing a handbook for gene regulatory network research using evolutionary computation, with applications for computer scientists, computational and system biologists This book is a step-by-step guideline for research in gene regulatory networks (GRN) using evolutionary computation (EC). The book is organized into four parts that deliver materials in a way equally attractive for a reader with training in computation or biology. Each of these sections, authored by well-known researchers and experienced practitioners, provides the relevant materials for the interested readers. The first part of this book contains an introductory background to the field. The second part presents the EC approaches for analysis and reconstruction of GRN from gene expression data. The third part of this book covers the contemporary advancements in the automatic construction of gene regulatory and reaction networks and gives direction and guidelines for future research. Finally, the last part of this book focuses on applications of GRNs with EC in other fields, such as design, engineering and robotics. • Provides a reference for current and future research in gene regulatory networks (GRN) using evolutionary computation (EC) • Covers sub-domains of GRN research using EC, such as expression profile analysis, reverse engineering, GRN evolution, applications • Contains useful contents for courses in gene regulatory networks, systems biology, computational biology, and synthetic biology • Delivers state-of-the-art research in genetic algorithms, genetic programming, and swarm intelligence Evolutionary Computation in Gene Regulatory Network Research is a reference for researchers and professionals in computer science, systems biology, and bioinformatics, as well as upper undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate students.
