Smart card application design

Smeh, John (2002) Smart card application design. Research Master thesis, Victoria University of Technology.


This study investigated sociotechnical criteria in the design and specification processes of smart card based projects through a case study. The adoption of the innovations in the case study was investigated. The study consisted of three phases: analysis, design and implementation. These were in relation to sociotechnical design criteria and its incorporation into a design methodology. Results from this study indicated that the adoption of the innovations was largely based on the design and specification processes. A formal model for these processes was constructed based on the case study. A recommendation for ongoing research into the refinement of the model presented is suggested. A n extended research project may focus on the model, or on one specific component.
