Biography

Kathryn Cormican (Ph.D.) lectures in the College of Engineering & Informatics at the National University of Ireland Galway. Her research interests lies in the areas of enterprise systems and technology innovation management. Kathryn leads a number of applied research projects in this area. She has published widely at international conferences and peer reviewed journals. Kathryn also works closely with many organisations helping them to design, develop and deploy new processes and systems. 

Research Interests

Our research focuses on the design, development and analysis of new processes and systems. We aim to optimise all aspects in the development cycle such as needs analysis, concept development, evaluation and validation, commercialisation and product take back at its end of life. This is an applied research area. Therefore it is essential to work closely with industry to identify and prioritise requirements, co-develop solutions and implement and validate new models and systems. A systems ethos which includes people, process and technology related issues are employed in the research. The research area is multidisciplinary in nature and spans functions such as engineering, technology and business. Our research contributes to and has a tangible impact on two key areas namely academia and industry:  First we expand and deepen the academic debate in often neglected but essential areas of research e.g. technology management and enterprise systems. A cross functional lens give this research a unique perspective to our work and contributes towards the integration of academic disciplines. I have a proven track record in publishing research outputs e.g. 27 peer reviewed journal papers, 67 peer reviewed conference papers, 4 book chapters, 1 abstract, 3 technical papers and 6 distance learning textbooks. Second as our research is applied in nature we seek to develop tangible outputs (such as architectures, models and information management systems) that solve real world problems.  The development and application of diagnostic tools helps organisations such as Medtronic, Honeywell and Stryker to understand where their strengths and weaknesses lie which allows us to co-develop focused and prioritised action plans for improvement. The introduction of new or improved processes and services has significantly enhanced organisational performance (i.e. reduced development time, reduced cost, improved quality and increased profits) in companies like Merit Medical, Boston Scientific and Intel. The research findings has influenced, informed and enhanced management practice and decision making in many organisations across many industries e.g. food, high tech and med tech industry.
