Human-Centered Specification Exemplars


Many practitioners and researchers designing technology for critical infrastructure have little visibility of the impact their innovation might on day-to-day operations. We are currently building ’specification exemplars’ that capture the socio-technical nuances associated with different contexts of use in different forms of critical infrastructure. We are grounding these exemplars in empirical research collected in different critical infrastructures. Once complete, the exemplars will help product developers better understand the environments their solutions will be situated in.
