1. Jones, Alistair. Co-located collaboration in interactive spaces for preliminary design : Collaboration co-localisée dans un espace interactif pour la conception préliminaire.

Degree: Docteur es, Technologies de l'Information et des Systèmes, 2013, Compiègne

La phase de conception préliminaire est déterminante lors de la réalisation d’un projet industriel. Elle exploite généralement des outils méthodologiques tels que le brainstorming, l’analyse causale et le chronogramme, qui permettent la collaboration entre des participants aux compétences et aux approches différentes. Ces activités se déroulent dans des salles de réunions traditionnelles, autour d'une table ou devant un tableau blanc, avec l’aide de nombreux papiers et Post-it, ce qui rend la préparation, l’exécution, et l’exploitation de ce processus particulièrement difficile. Jusqu’à présent, cette phase de conception préliminaire a résisté à la numérisation, notamment parce que l’addition d’un dispositif informatique au sein de ces activités perturbe la communication et la collaboration naturelles entre participants. Au cours des dix dernières années, de nombreuses avancées technologiques ont été réalisées en ce qui concerne les dispositifs numériques tels que les tables et les tableaux interactifs, les smartphones et les tablettes tactiles. La similarité des configurations physiques de ces dispositifs avec les dispositifs plus traditionnels permet d’exploiter les capacités préexistantes des utilisateurs (l’habileté motrice, le raisonnement spatial, le langage parlé, etc.). Les chercheurs se basent sur l’hypothèse que ces nouveaux dispositifs, travaillant de concert au sein d’espaces interactifs, pourront augmenter la collaboration co-localisée pour les équipes de conception préliminaire. L’objectif de cette thèse est, d’une part, d’étudier la conception d’un espace interactif pour la collaboration co-localisée durant la phase de conception préliminaire, et d’autre part, de proposer une architecture permettant de réunir les dispositifs hétérogènes et distribués composant cet espace.La première contribution consiste en une présentation détaillée d’un espace interactif utilisant une configuration physique encore peu exploitée dans la littérature scientifique : une table et un tableau multi-tactiles de grandes dimensions. La conception de cet espace interactif a été basée sur des observations d’utilisateurs dans un contexte de conception préliminaire traditionnel et sur une revue de la littérature visant à identifier des principes de conception. Lors de la conception de cet espace, une attention particulière a été portée à l’interface utilisateur qui s’étend sur des écrans partagés et qui maintient une séparation entre les activités d’un participant et les activités d’une équipe. Enfin, les évaluations, réalisées avec des groupes de cinq à six participants, démontrent une amélioration dans l’exploitation des outils méthodologiques sur supports numériques par rapport à une utilisation traditionnelle lors de la conception préliminaire.La conception d’une infrastructure distribuée basée sur un système multi-agents constitue la deuxième contribution de cette thèse. Cette infrastructure parvient à rassembler de nombreuses plateformes et des dispositifs hétérogènes. Elle représente une solution intéressante pour les… Advisors/Committee Members: Barthès, Jean-Paul (thesis director), Lenne, Dominique (thesis director).

2. Nacenta Sanchez, Miguel Angel. Cross-display object movement in multi-display environments.

Degree: 2009, University of Saskatchewan

Many types of multi-display environments (MDEs) are emerging that allow users to better interact with computers. In these environments, being able to move visual objects (such as window icons or the cursor) from one display to another is a fundamental activity. This dissertation focuses on understanding how human performance of cross-display actions is affected by the design of cross-display object movement interaction techniques. Three main aspects of cross-display actions are studied: how displays are referred to by the system and the users, how spatial actions are planned, and how actions are executed. Each of these three aspects is analyzed through laboratory experiments that provide empirical evidence on how different characteristics of interaction techniques affect performance. The results further our understanding of cross-display interaction and can be used by designers of new MDEs to create more efficient multi-display interfaces.

3. Abello, Manuel Blanco. Application of memory-based approach to multi-objective optimisation on dynamic resource-constrained project scheduling with time-varying number of tasks.

Degree: 2014, University of Adelaide

Many, if not all, manufacturing processes in industry require scheduling activities; such activities are very important as often they determine the success or failure of some companies. For example, in wine production, grapes are planted, mature fruits are harvested, transported and crushed then the juice obtained is placed in tanks, which are managed during fermentation, and finally the wine is bottle. A schedule can be a solution to a problem which has several, possibly conflicting objectives, e.g. the mininisation of production costs and delays while meeting customer-imposed wine delivery times; the problem also has constraints, e.g. a bottling line cannot be used without being cleaned to process white wine when it last processed red wine. As can be expected, the problem has variables such as the number of wine bottles ordered. The environment (e.g. wine factory) in which the schedule is implemented may change (e.g. one bottling line breaks down) whereby this schedule becomes infeasible. Consequently, there could be a need to solve a new scheduling problem to obtain a new schedule best suited to the new state of the environment. The number of variables in this new problem may be the same as that of the previous problem. A large proportion of research effort has been directed towards scheduling problems with a constant number of variables despite changes in the environments where the problems are set. However, there are important scheduling problems where the number of variables could vary. For example, in some models of job-shop scheduling problems there are occurrences of additional rush jobs and job cancellations. This thesis deals with one particular class of scheduling problems, each being multi-objective, resource constrained, and having numbers and values of variables which vary over time. Various traditional operation research methods as well as a few Artificial Intelligence-based techniques, such as Multi-Agent Systems and Evolutionary Algorithms (EA), have been applied to solve this type of problem. In this thesis, a memory-based EA technique was applied to solve problems from the class. Being memory-based, this technique utilises the solutions to problems set in previous states of an environment in order to solve a problem set in the current state of this environment. The memory-based EA technique, referred to as Centroid-Based Adaptation with Random Immigrants (CBAR), is applicable only to solve multi-objective, resource-constrained problems with a constant number of variables. In this thesis, CBAR is extended to become applicable to solve all problems from the above-mentioned class. The result of this extension is a technique referred to as Mapping of Task IDs for CBAR (McBAR). This thesis investigates the performance, the performance stability over environmental dynamics, and the efficiency of McBAR for solving various problems from the above class, legitimises the sub-algorithms that constitute McBAR and extends McBAR to become proactive (anticipative of future… Advisors/Committee Members: Michalewicz, Zbigniew (advisor), Bui, Lam Thu (advisor), School of Computer Science (school).
