Introduction
Christoph Oemig is a PhD candidate with the Human-Computer Interaction Group, Otto-Friedrich-Universität Bamberg. Christoph does research in the fields of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW). Their current focus lies on awareness and coordination support as part of their Standardized Coordination Task Assessments (SCTA) project. Further Christoph is a professinal business analyst with Deutsche Bank.

The major goal of pre-sales phase is to provide customers with a compelling offer that exactly fits their needs. For its creation not only sales but also requirements engineering activities take place. The latter are needed to translate the customers’ needs to features, to efforts, and eventually to costs. Although this sounds like business as usua...

Requirements engineering (RE) is not only part of the process while delivering or creating a service or product. In the pre-sales phase, RE activities play an important role during the offer preparation. Although this sounds like business as usual there is a major difference: the pre-sales phase entails challenges (e.g., a limited duration or the c...

Coordination and awareness have been topics in the area of Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) starting from day one. Effortless coordination has been a major goal ever since. However, while awareness research became quite popular, coordination got increasingly out of focus. Its concepts stayed rather theoretical lacking concrete steps towar...

Awareness support in cooperative systems provides users with mutual information on each others’ presence and activities. Measuring its effectiveness is a complex task since people tend to forget quickly. Therefore, it becomes imperative to use a technique generating results while a user’s awareness is still present. The Standardized Coordination Ta...

Full-text available
Appropriate awareness support has been an issue in the area of Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) for quite a while. Yet, many challenges like the dual trade-off between awareness and privacy and awareness and disruption still remain. In this paper we present our human-centred approach on how to utilise group dynamics and team development s...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The working memory of the human brain has always had a strong influence on the design of Human-Computer Interaction. Yet, it is limited in capacity and loses its contents over time. Research regarding these constraints typically focused on single user tasks and systems. Collaborative settings and systems introduce the need for the secondary task of...

Coordination and awareness have been research issues for many years. Effortless coordination and effective awareness support have been goals ever since. Yet, measuring the effectiveness and efficiency of these support systems has remained a complex issue leaving researches with the dilemma that achieving either goal requires some kind of measuremen...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Forgetting is a natural mechanism that keeps our memory from overloading. In the past it had a large influence on the design of Human-Computer Interaction. Yet, its main focus was on single user tasks and systems. Collaborative settings introduce the secondary task of coordination which has to share the already scarce capacity of the working memory...
Conference Paper

Requirements engineering (RE) is typically associated with the creation of a service or product. Its activities are usually not immediately considered to be part of the pre-sales phase. Yet, not only sales-but a lot of requirements engineering activities actually do occur during this phase. Besides tender processes where customers provide a detaile...

Die Phase der Anforderungserhebung gilt im Allgemeinen als sehr risikobehaftet. Obwohl das Minimieren von Risiken im Kern der Definition des Requirements Engineering(RE) steht, wird das Risiko Management eher dem Projektleiter überlassen. Dieser Beitrag grenzt das Risiko Management des Requirements Engineering von dem des Projekt Management auf Bas...

Sales und Requirements Engineering sind gar nicht soweit voneinander entfernt, wie es oft scheint. Der Verkaufsansatz des Conceptual Selling (MillerHeiman) sowie der dazugehörige Greensheet als Werkzeug, sind im Sales gestandene Größen aber auch durch wenige Kniffe für das Requirements Engineering in der Pre-Sales Phase verwendbar. Zusätzlich erfor...

Die Arten von Softwareanwendungen sind vielfältig. Allerdings lassen sich im Bereich von Optimierungssystemen die Anforderung nicht in allen Bereichen genauso erheben wie bei einer Büroapplikation. Dieser Beitrag sensibilisiert für die Unterschiede und beschreibt ein Vorgehen aus der Praxis mit einem Ansatz, der Wissensträger und Operations Researc...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Awareness support in cooperative environments has been a research issue in the area of distributed systems for computer-supported cooperative work for more than two decades. Measuring its effectiveness remains a complex task since it is difficult to grasp awareness in situ. Consequently, techniques and tools are required generating results while a...
Technical Report
Full-text available
Efficient distant cooperation often requires spontaneous ad-hoc social interaction, which is only possible with adequate information on the prospective communication partner. This often requires disclosing and sharing personal information via tools such as instant messaging systems and can conflict with the users' wishes for privacy. In this paper...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Instant messaging platforms facilitate coordination in workgroups by providing users with mutual information on their presence and availability, allowing for ad-hoc conversations with little disturbance. For this purpose they typically capture, process, and present information from and to the users involved. Thereby, they have to address a fundamen...
Technical Report
Full-text available
For efficient distant cooperation the members of workgroups need information about each other. This need for information disclosure often conflicts with the users' wishes for privacy. In the literature often reciprocity is suggested as a solution to this trade-off. Yet, this conception of reciprocity and its enforcement by systems does not match re...
Technical Report
Full-text available
The effective and efficient cooperation in communities and groups requires that the members of the community or group have adequate information about each other and the environment. In this paper, we outline the basic challenges of managing awareness information. We analyse the management of awareness information in face-to-face situations, and dis...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Instant messaging systems facilitate the coordination of geographically distributed users through sup- port for presence and availability information, and ad-hoc conversations among online users. However, despite their widespread use they seem to be designed and developed from a technology-push, rather than a user-centred design perspective. In fac...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Many concepts and systems for the technical support of communication, cooperation, and coordination of workgroups have been developed in the research field of computer-supported cooperative work over the last two decades. Yet, spontaneous coordination with remote parties can still be a challenge. Instant messaging tools improve the situation by pro...

Project
Develop a measurement approach that helps developing better awareness and coordination support systems. At its core the project facilitates a quantitative measurement approach capturing awareness and coordination knowledge when it is still present (then expressed as KPIs and visualizations). Continuous measurements allows to gradually improve a system of such kind in the right direction or to conduct basic research by asking more general questions im terms of awareness or coordination support.
