Mobile Knowledge Management (MUMMY)

Abstract

A big, and still rising percentage of workers is doing at least in parts mobile business work. From the IT point of view, one of the immediate consequences is the increasing demand for being integrated into the global and corporate network both in case of recording new information and retrieving needed information.

MUMMY was a project, funded by the European Commission (EC) and the Federal Office for Education and Science (BBW) in Switzerland, to research and develop means to improve the efficiency of mobile business processes through mobile, personalied knowledge management. Sreenshots of the Mummy application on PDA

The project resulted in a set of integrated components forming the “MUMMY system”. This enables mobile workers to never loose track and coherence of their “mobile knowledge” and provides:

  • new approaches to mobile information and knowledge handling by extending knowledge management to support authoring, sharing, retrieval, and visualisation processes in mobile work.
  • Added value by just-in-time mobile assistance, facilities to speed up the workflow of spatially distributed business processes,
  • savings through efficient/natural forms of on-the-spot information capturing,
  • avoidance of delayed data entry and post-edit, and
  • support for mobile co-operative (planning) processes.

Mummy functionalities

The MUMMY-system meets the needs of mobile workers to capture and access knowledge coherently by an „information-in-context“ approach using multimedia annotation and location / task-related assistance.

Mummy architecture

The system consists of a set of different components which form some distinct derivates or application-like modules:

  • MUMMY Core
  • MUMMY Pilot Application
  • Grenoble
  • Problem Tracking
  • SVG-Collaboration
  • Hypervideo

Partners

  • Zentrum fuer Graphishe Datenverarbeitung e.V., Germany
  • INTRACOM SA, Greece
  • University of Applied Sciences Waedenswill, Schwitzerland
  • Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic
  • COSMOTE, Greece
  • ARCADIS, Germany

Funding

This project was funded by European Community - IST-2001-37365.
