The working portfolio of Symbio is grounded on observing the control room, in addition to the operational network, which is a larger part of a collaborative cognitive system.
The collaborative cognitive system is a mechanism which could be physically distributed throughout the rooms, or/and decision centres, or any other area which performs specific tasks proactively or reactively. Another critical element of this system is automation which is acting in collaboration and harmoniously with human actors to accomplish the objectives and functions of the collaborative cognitive system.
Collaboration between TeQnovation and Symbio is aimed to maximize that distributed mechanism while making sure that the flow of information is appropriate through different parts. Every agent is in complete autonomy of information processing, decision-making, receiving of information which is adequate with his/her job requirements, room layout and design in a manner which fosters the adequate flow of information within the different rooms, between multiple agents, automated or human, and between human agents.
Besides, it fosters the presentation of information surfaces (basically through desktop screens or outside the premises of their desks/static boards), to make sure that the entire environmental factors (HVAC, lighting, acoustics) are optimal to promote appropriate working conditions for our agents, and ultimately offer room finishing which makes the work agreeable and offers a comfortable workplace.
TeQnovation and Symbio collectively offers the following:
Functional design and analysis: meet within the clients to determine the involved agents, within and outside the room, how the interaction is going to take place and how the information should be transported.
Layout design and analysis: meet with the clients to determine the adequate spatial organisation within the room for the acquisition of the design requirements throughout the functional design and analysis.
Console, design, and manufacturing of the furniture: we guarantee cognitive and physical ergonomics, and providing easy access to various needed information and controls, offer storage and facilities involving archiving, lockers, etc., manufacturing, installation, and shipment of all furniture on the placement site.
User interface and also the interaction design: a process which information is required, how information should be presented, and how the interaction of the users with the software needs to take place.
Designing Environment: HVAC, lighting, and acoustics.
Finishing: material selection, colours and textures for all of the visible surfaces within the room.
