About

I got a degree in Electrical Engineering - University of Porto (1978), an MSc in Operational Research and Systems Engineering - Technical University of Lisbon (1989), and a Ph.D. in Engineering Sciences - University of Porto (1996).

I began my professional career in the industry as a Maintenance Engineer, in 1978. Along 6 years, I was also a Project Engineer in two companies.

Since 1987, I have been been working as Consultant and Leader of several industry projects at INEGI, an R&D interface institute of the UP.

I was Coordinator of the Industrial Engineering and Management Unit at FEUP (1997-98 and 2003-05), where I am currently an Associate Professor.

I was Member of the Board of STCP, the Public Transport Company of Porto (1998-2002 and 2006-2012).

I keep a regular research activity since 1991. I am a Senior Researcher, currently member of CEGI, the Industrial Engineering and Management research unit of INESC TEC. My main topics of interest are Transportation, Decision Support Systems and Applied Operations Research. I am currently Member of the Editorial Board of the “Transportation Research Procedia” Journal.

A Conceptual Framework for an Integrated Information System to Enhance Urban Mobility

Abstract
The multiplicity of stakeholders in urban contexts can greatly increase the complexity of transportation systems. Since all stakeholders depend, to varying degrees, on the same data to get the information for their mobility, this work considers that an integrated information system, focused on their different needs, will significantly improve the efficiency of transportation systems. A stakeholder-focused system makes the provided information more relevant, while an integrated system fosters the sharing of the data that generates this information. To build such a system, a conceptual framework focused on stakeholders and their decision processes was developed. This new framework takes advantage of existing ones, such as the Zachman framework, the Enterprise Architecture Design, and the Multilevel Service Design. The proposed multidisciplinary approach, putting together information systems (IS) and service design concepts, has considerable potential in ensuring that the right information reaches each stakeholder at the right time.

Sustainable development and morphological analysis: a multi-level strategic planning for the transport sector

Authors
Fátima Teles, Md; de Sousa, JF;

Publication
Int. J. Inf. Decis. Sci.

Abstract
Societies face complex challenges, which require a harmonious transition to future patterns. A strategic response to reconfigure society should assure the provision of critical resources and the resilience of the socio-technical systems in the long-term. The implementation of a new dominant technology and paradigm in the transport context is a complex process: it is multidimensional, requires seamless integration of various features and entails trade-offs in the decision-making process. The authors use general morphological analysis (GMA) as a theoretical framework that supports decision making in the transition management of transport to a new powertrain technology. This example is just an illustration of a broader representation of all the possible solutions of a large-scale problem as it is the case of any multi-level process of governance, leading to the pursuit of new paradigms. The originality of the paper lies on using a GMA that addresses sustainable challenges in a transport system from a multi-level perspective. Copyright © 2021 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.
