Crossing the Border examines the emergence of a brand new philosophy in keeping with the belief of "human-centred expertise" and, by utilizing a case research, illustrates the ways that clients, social scientists, managers and engineers can perform the layout and improvement of human-centred laptop built-in production (CIM) process. The ebook bargains a different perception right into a huge ecu venture (ESPRIT venture 1217) aimed toward the layout and improvement of a human-centred CIM procedure. The publication examines the issues inherent in constructing interdisciplinary layout tools and of "crossing the border" among the social and engineering sciences. The authors supply proposals and guidance for overcoming such difficulties in keeping with their event inside of this undertaking. Crossing the Border could be of specific curiosity to researchers and practitioners within the sector of manufacturing facility automation, to scholars and researchers in AI, and to all these drawn to the human and organisational concerns surrounding the computerised manufacturing facility of the future.
