Abstract [en]

This thesis shows new domains for social media applications. More specifically, it explores how communication and collaboration can be supported in the process automation industry.´A concept demonstrator was implemented using the Sencha Touch framework. The prototype is based on several identified use cases, and has been tested and evaluated with end users.The design and functionality is inspired from social media applications such as Facebook and Stack Overow. These kinds of popular social media platforms have developed an intuitive way of structuring and grouping information. This report shows that these information structures are indeed applicable in non traditional domains, such as the process automation industry.The concept answers to identified problem scenarios, e.g., communicating information between shifts and support of handling alarms. It also approaches personalization in order to support users focus and interest.
