Special Track

Process Science and Data Analytics

Information Systems International Conference (ISICO) 2021

Description

At the heart of every organization is interrelated activities to achieve a certain goal i.e., business processes. Business process management (BPM) has emerged as a discipline to manage and improve the organization’s business processes. BPM has received interests from researchers across many disciplines including computer science, industrial engineering, and operation management. However, the focus of BPM to date has been the interplay between strategy, process, people, and technology within an organization.

Today’s advance technology has diminished the boundaries of physical and digital world and profoundly changed the way people, organization and society conduct their day today and business activities. At the same time, the change in our environment, emphasized even more by the COVID-19 global pandemic, has brought a hard signal for us to consider about our contribution to the society and the world that we live in, beyond the boundary of a single discipline. We need to bring together multidisciplinary efforts to contribute to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) by 2030.

In a recent keynote speech by Prof. Jan Vom Brocke at Business Process Management Conference 2020, answered this call by coining the term Process Science that aims to find and implement new ways of doing things. This study of processes calls for involvement of researchers from application domains, ethics, organization science, cognitive science, built environment, and law to work with information systems and computer science researchers.

Special Track Keynote Session

COGNITIVE DIAGRAM UNDERSTANDING AND TASK PERFORMANCE IN SYSTEMS ANALYSIS AND DESIGN

Abstract

Models play an important role in Systems Analysis and Design (SAD). A diagrammatic model is defined as a mapping from a domain to a visual representation in such a way that relevant information is preserved to meet a specific goal. So far, cognitive research on diagram criteria in relation to task performance has been fragmented. The aim of this talk is to (1) consolidate research on the cognitive processing steps involved during understanding and task performance with diagrams, (2) consolidate corresponding criteria for such diagrams to best support cognitive processing and (3) demonstrate the support effective diagrams provide for performing SAD tasks. Addressing the first aim, we develop a theoretical cognitive framework of task performance with diagrams called CogniDia. It integrates different cognitive theories from research on diagrams in software engineering and information systems. Regarding the second aim, we review the literature to organize criteria for effective cognitive processing of diagrams. We identify research gaps on verbal and task processing. Regarding the third aim, we use the theoretical cognitive framework to investigate how diagrams support the SAD process effectively. The paper corresponding to this talk is in press with Management Information Systems Quarterly, co-authored by Monika Malinova and Jan Mendling.
