The basic discipline is informatics, how information is processed and presented, but research into information logistics is considerably wider and gathers its methods from economics, technology and behavioural science. We work with information needs analyses and with operational and business models. The aim is to discover methods that improve the handling of information.
Almost regardless of what we do, we need information and others need information from us. It´s human nature. How is it then that we need to spend so much time both searching for information and removing information that we don´t need?
A good example is service and after-market. How can we organise repairs and maintenance so that equipment is repaired in a shorter time and at a lower cost? This is just one of the areas in information logistics that we research at CIL.
