A Software Roadmap for the Fab Lab Network.

Abstract [en]

For continuous effective collaboration, information exchange and daily operation within a multinational, distributed organization, both internal and external processes require efficient hard- and software support systems. The findings of this report are based on interviews and observations during a fab lab network workshop, aimed to determine the requirements for the software capabilities. The analysis of requirements gave an overview of what kind of software is feasible to use; i.e. where custom software can be used and the requirements which can be covered using already existing software, or off-the-shelf products.

One of the main findings addresses the need for developing a common platform for knowledge exchange in the fab lab network in order to take advantage of all the contributorsâ competence. Other findings include a recommendation for a plan for how to implement a feasible roadmap for software usage throughout the fab lab network.

Vägkarta for mjukvara i fab lab- nettverket

Sammendrag

Løpende effektivt samarbeid, utveksling av informasjon og daglig drift i en multinasjonal distribuert organisasjon krever velfungerende løsninger for så vel programvare som maskinvare. Dette gjelder både for interne prosesser i organisasjonen og eksterne prosesser mot andre aktører. Funnene i denne rapporten er basert på intervjuer og observasjoner under en workshop i nettverket av distribuerte fab labs. Målet med undersøkelsen var å finne krav til programvaresystemer for organisasjonen. Analysen av kravene har gitt en oversikt over hvilke typer programvare det er formålstjenelig å benytte, det vil si på hvilke områder skreddersydd programvare bør utvikles og for hvilke krav allerede eksisterende programvare kan benyttes.

Et av hovedfunnene er at det er behov for å utvikle en felles plattform for kunnskapsutveksling mellom de ulike fab labs for å kutte utnytte kompetanse fra alle bidragsyterne i nettverket. Andre funn inkluderer et forslag til en plan for et veikart for programvare og hvordan dette kan implementeres i hele nettverket av fab labs.
