Abstract [en]

A common problem in in-house development projects is the tendency to be so dependent upon existing information systems, that the only possible development solution is to extend the computer environment with new client-server applications, communicating with the older alphanumeric mainframe systems. Maintaining and refining existing software receives higher priority than building new computer environments.

In our work we have observed and identified these problems in several case handling work activities and studied the impacts these problems have on end-users. A better work environment, minimising the cognitive load caused by the handling of the information system can be achieved, by approaching these design problems through the application of design heuristics specific for the case handling domain, and by a well thought out compromise, due to these technical limitation.
