GSK Places Initiative

Groups

This is the second project from the GSK collaboration. This project considers how space and collaboration are intertwined. We are developing a computational simulation and tool that allows stakeholders from across the GSK organization to modify their existing pharmaceutical site to encourage collaboration between scientists and optimize for space and time efficiency. Our model is a case study in how one’s workplace influences their tasks and interactions. The software works dynamically with a Tactile Matrix, which is an interactive decision support system that allows users to instantly and collaboratively explore the models in an approachable, tangible way. Users can change the population by adding more scientists and can change the site by suggesting architectural changes and moving places and equipment.
