Abstract

This paper reports the development and deployment of digi-tal support for human creativity in a domain outside of the creative industries -- health-and-safety management in man-ufacturing plants. It reports applied research to extend a risk detection and resolution process at a world-class manufac-turing plant that produces tractors with creativity techniques and new digital support for the plant employees to use these techniques effectively as part of the risk detection and reso-lution process. The development of the digital support was constrained by the plant's processes, resources and manu-facturing culture, and the new digital support reported in this paper was designed for quick use across the plant with minimum training or management overhead. The paper reports the development, implementation and early evalua-tion of the creativity techniques and digital support in the plant as a demonstrator for the wider application of creativi-ty techniques and digital support tools.
