Virtual Situation Room
University of Oulu
Unit and faculty
The goal of the VSR project is to create foundations for the development of a novel virtual solution, Virtual Situation Room, that enables real-time data-driven management and collaboration in inter-organizational projects in a virtual environment. VSR improves the experience of previous collaborative co-locational spaces (i.e. physical Big Rooms, War Rooms, and Situation Rooms) by solving existing problems and enabling both real-time data-driven project decision-making and collaborative practices and procedures. The future VSR solution includes the concept, integrated technological solution, and practices, processes and implementation guidelines that enable:
1) project stakeholders’ real-time data and information sharing
2) utilization of the shared data and information in project planning, coordination, and control
3) project stakeholders’ efficient decision-making based on the data and information
4) an experience of virtual presence among the stakeholders and virtual collaborative working practices.
