PhD defence: Szymon Furtak

In order to obtain the PhD degree, Szymon Furtak has submitted his thesis entitled: Sensing the Future: Designing Sensor-Based Predictive Information Systems for Forecasting Spare Part Demand for Diesel Engines

Friday, March 9, 2018 - 14:00 to 16:00

As digital technologies become prevalent and embedded in the environment, "smart" everyday objects like smart phones and smart homes have become part and parcel of the human enterprise. The ubiquity of smart objects, that produce ever-growing streams of data, presents both challenges and opportunities. In this dissertation, I argue that information systems extending these data streams, referred to as "predictive information systems with sensors", can generate added value and will be gaining momentum in academia and in the industry. Subsequently, seeing apparent complexity in designing IS artifacts with such functionality, I introduce a framework for Designing Information Systems with Predictive Analytics (DISPA), extending Design Science Research specifically towards rigorous design of predictive analytics.
