About

Filipa finished her Master's degree in Information Science at FEUP (Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto) in 2010. Her master thesis was done in the scope of Information Management and Enterprise Content Management research domains. Professionally, she started working as IT Consultant at Centre for Enterprise Systems Engineering (CESE) in INESC TEC in December 2008. As a consultant, she worked with companies from different sectors, both industry and services, in projects for improving their Business Processes and Information Systems. Moreover, she actively participated as researcher in European RTD Projects and in research activities in information and knowledge management within the Collaborative Networks and Knowledge Management research group led by Professor António Lucas Soares. In the same way, she kept her connection with the university, being a Guest Lecturer in the Enterprise Information course of the Information Science Master programme at Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto. In 2014 she left INESC TEC to embrace a new professional challenge outside the research environment at VORTAL as a Senior Functional Analyst. This represented an excellent opportunity to develop soft-skills and to get experience in the development of information systems, in particular in the areas of software requirements elicitation and specification and to get familiar with the most recent software product development methodologies. In the end of 2016, she felt the need to accomplish another one of her personal and professional goals: develop a PhD. Therefore, she rejoins INESC TEC to work as a researcher with António Lucas Soares at Centre for Enterprise Systems Engineering (CESE) in scientific domains of Information Management, Knowledge Management, Collaboration and Digital Platforms. She joined the FEUP Doctoral Program in Digital Media, in 2018. Since 2019 she has a FCT PhD Research grant to develop her PhD research program.

Immersive Systems in Human-Centered Manufacturing: The Informational Dimension

Authors
Ramalho, FR; Soares, AL; Almeida, AH;

Publication
IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology

Abstract
The rise of smart manufacturing environments, characterized by high quantity of data/information available, contributes to a growing interest and research towards the use of immersive technologies not only in factories but also across entire value chains. New immersive technologies and devices are being developed to improve cooperation within Collaborative Networks (CNs), especially in the human-machine hybrid networks context. The application of these technologies in such complex environments expands substantially the modes how information is delivered and used, which may exacerbate one of the oldest problems of cognitive ergonomics: information overload. Therefore, this work presents applications of immersive technologies in manufacturing into the perspective of “information work” and “immersive human-centered manufacturing systems”. A framework is proposed to be developed in a FabLab to understand the worker needs and interactions. This FabLab aims to demonstrate the potential/real application of immersive technologies, towards the enhancement of the human worker cognitive capabilities. © 2020, IFIP International Federation for Information Processing.

Providing industry 4.0 technologies: The case of a production technology cluster

Authors
Dalmarco, G; Ramalho, FR; Barros, AC; Soares, AL;

Publication
Journal of High Technology Management Research

Abstract
The concept of industry 4.0 (i4.0) encompasses the integration of different technologies into an autonomous, knowledge- and sensor-based, self-regulating production system. Our objective is to synthesize which are the challenges and opportunities of adopting i4.0 from the perspective of technology provider companies. A single-case research was conducted with ten companies at the Portuguese Production Technologies Cluster. Based on i4.0 technologies – Augmented reality; Additive Manufacturing; Big Data; Cloud Computing; Cyber-Physical Systems; Cybersecurity; Smart Robotics; Simulation; and System Integration – interviewees mentioned that the main adoption challenges are the analysis of data generated, integration of new technologies with available equipment and workforce, and computational limitations. The main opportunities are improvements in: efficiency; flexibility; productivity; cybersecurity; quality of products and services; and decision process due to data analysis. Interviewees have also foreseen changes in company's business model through the integration of internal resources with complementary activities of their partners and other cluster companies. © 2019 Elsevier Inc.

How's ICT Project Management Going in Portugal?

Authors
Silva, D; Pinto, JA; Gomes, P; Ramalho, F;

Publication
Project Management

Abstract
This chapter presents the preliminary results of an IT organizational project management maturity research called OPM3® Portugal Project, which is currently underway. It was designed by Portuguese research and development organization Ambithus, based on PMI's (Project Management Institute) OPM3® (Organizational Project Management Maturity Model) standard. A descriptive analysis of IT organizations is made, the case studies selection criteria are explained, and a relevant literature revision of clustering models is made. Preliminary results from the IT organizations are presented and organized by Project Management and Portfolio Management processes, and Organizational Enablers. After the results analysis, it presents a list of processes and procedures that serves as the guidelines for what IT organizations need to improve to obtain a better level of maturity in Project Management. The overall results show that the IT Portuguese industry is strong on its processes and has a good level of maturity in project management.
