    Weld Producibility Assessment System: Evaluation of Producibility Assessment tools using Set-based approach in Multi-disciplinary Aerospace Design2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is a continuation of design automation studies within research projects financed by VINNOVA (the Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems) and Knowledge foundation that contributed to the development of producibility assessment system at a global aerospace products supplier, GKN Aerospace Sweden. A case study was carried at the company on Turbine Rear Structure (TRS) component design of a jet engine with the main objective to evaluate weld producibility assessment tools and to demonstrate system’s performance in multi-disciplinary design environment. The context of this thesis is a set-based product design development where several studies, i.e. thermal, structural, aerodynamic etc. are carried concurrently to gather knowledge between their parameter relations. The thesis contributes to the goal of fully integrated producibility assessment in multi-disciplinary studies to support product development process.

    The problems encountered during the thesis execution involved systematic analysis setup to extract and verify CAD geometry data, assessment of meaningfulness of producibility indicators, development of semi-automated data post-processing module and relating product design to its manufacturing aspects. Commercial and in-house developed software were used extensively to demonstrate the results of the system with the help of continuous company support to mitigate indispensable bottlenecks along the way.

    The work has led to systematic improvements, determined assessment limitations and most relevant weld producibility aspects. Collected feedback to evaluate prepared demonstrator showed promising results to support product design decisions considering both performance and producibility.

    Internet of Things påverkan på informationsflödet: En fallstudie på Saab Training & Simulation2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: This study aims to explore how Internet of Things could be integrated in manufacturing companies to reduce the potential inadequacy in an information flow. To achieve this, two research questions were formed: 

    1. How is the information flow designed in a manufacturing company that produces customer-specific products? 

    2. What possibilities does Internet of Things give information flow to reduce potential inadequac

    Method: A pilot study was conducted to help the authors create a picture of the study's problem area. Later a literature study and a case study were conducted. The literature study was conducted to create the theoretical framework and included areas such as Internet of Things, information, communication, information flow and information systems. The case study conducted at a large manufacturing company and was consisted document studies, observations and a focus group. The results of the study are generated through a pairing of the theoretical framework and empirical study. 

    Findings: The company's information flow was complex and contained a lot of manual management of information and communication. This turned out to create consequences for the information’s reliability, relevance, and timing. It has therefore been found that there are improvement opportunities through an integration of IOT in the information flow. A digitalization of an information flow can lead to creation of standard process and a larger and safer amount of shared information. 

    Implications: The study contributes theoretically by evaluating how IOT can contribute to innovative ways of working with information flows at manufacturing companies; this by analysing key aspects of a current information flow and IOT. Practically, the study contributes to identifying potential improvements by integrate IOT in a corporate information flow. 

    Limitations: The study is of a one-case-design which limits generalisability. Therefore, other companies may need to examine their specific requirements before taking advantage of the study. The generalization increases slightly due to the broadness of the term IOT and that it can be applied in a wide range of areas. The method chapter has been carefully designed and described to increase the study's reliability.

    Agent Autonomy and Locus of Responsibility for Team Situation Awareness2017In: HAI '17: Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Human Agent Interaction, New York: Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) , 2017, p. 261-269Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Rapid technical advancements have led to dramatically improved abilities for artificial agents, and thus opened up for new ways of cooperation between humans and them, from disembodied agents such as Siris to virtual avatars, robot companions, and autonomous vehicles. It is therefore relevant to study not only how to maintain appropriate cooperation, but also where the responsibility for this resides and/or may be affected. While there are previous organisations and categorisations of agents and HAI research into taxonomies, situations with highly responsible artificial agents are rarely covered. Here, we propose a way to categorise agents in terms of such responsibility and agent autonomy, which covers the range of cooperation from humans getting help from agents to humans providing help for the agents. In the resulting diagram presented in this paper, it is possible to relate different kinds of agents with other taxonomies and typical properties. A particular advantage of this taxonomy is that it highlights under what conditions certain effects known to modulate the relationship between agents (such as the protégé effect or the "we"-feeling) arise.

    Decision model for quality management at LKAB: A case study2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis was conducted at the mining company LKAB in Malmberget located in the northern part of Sweden. LKAB Malmberget expected an increased input variance of raw material which required a more effective decision-making in order to handle increased production volumes. A case study was conducted to assist LKAB in time critical decision. New decision criteria needed to be found and defined to make sure that the correct decision criteria were fulfilled when decision were taken regarding the production processes. These criteria needed to be connected to the specific organization to be suitable for time critical decision-making.

    Two decisions models were created based on scientific articles and interviews with the employees at LKAB. This resulted in a local decision model for time critical decision-making within defined sections of the complete production process. A global decision model was also created to be suitable for time critical decision-making at a global level where several stakeholders needed to be involved in the decision-making process. The results of this thesis can be used as a first step for preparing an organization for a more effective decision-making process regarding product quality.

    Managing the Transformation Towards Advanced Service Provision: A Multilevel Framework of Servitization2018Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Product-oriented firms are increasingly moving towards providing services to customers in a bid to differentiate their offerings, increase customer loyalty, and achieve higher, more stable revenue streams. This trend of servitization is becoming ubiquitous in manufacturing firms. These firms increasingly invest resources in efforts to offer basic and advanced services. Basic services focus on supporting the functioning of the product and increasing its efficiency. But advanced services focus on helping customers achieve their desired outcomes. Providing advanced services holds potential of greater benefits for the manufacturing firms, but a closer look indicates that most firms still largely offer basic services. This is because, advanced services demand greater intensity in relationships with customers, a higher degree of customization, and a sharper focus on assisting customers in their own value creation processes.

     

    Offering advanced services is more risky, complex, and difficult to execute. Therefore, significant changes must be made in terms of company culture, structures, processes, capabilities, and business models. In fact, servitizing firms must transform almost every aspect of the way they do business – from their business strategy to their capabilities, organizational structure, culture, mindset, and business logic. This transformation towards advanced services therefore affects all levels of the firm: strategic, operational, and individual levels. Although prior studies have explored many aspects of the challenges involved in the transformation towards advanced services, they typically focus on function-specific practices without linking initiatives at other organizational levels. The literature lacks a multilevel understanding of the transformation process. Such an understanding could provide a better understanding of the transformation process, linking various aspects at multiple levels within the firm. To address this gap, this dissertation aims to improve our understanding of multilevel transformation towards advanced service provision in manufacturing firms.

     

    Based on extensive qualitative studies with 13 leading Swedish manufacturing firms engaged in servitization, this dissertation provides a framework that shows how manufacturing firms experience ambivalence (i.e. the simultaneous pull in opposite directions) during transformation and how this affects the firm at the strategic, operational, and individual levels. The dissertation provides specific insights of how individual actions enable capability building for advanced services and how capabilities for advanced services help address business model alignment problems, thereby supporting transformation towards advanced service provision. This dissertation extends our understanding of how various aspects at multiple levels within a manufacturing firm are linked during the transformation towards advanced service provision. It marks one of the initial attempts in the servitization research to provide a multilevel explanation of firms’ overall transformation from providers of products to providers of advanced services.

     

    This dissertation also uses the lens of ambivalence to provide insights into co-existing product and service orientations and their consequences during servitization. Ambivalence theories have been associated with individuals and have been applied in the sociopsychology literature. This dissertation extends these theories to the organizational context and the servitization literature. It also identifies specific capabilities that can help manufacturing firms in their transformation towards advanced services. Specifically, it redefines digitalization capability and shows how this capability is one of the most important capabilities that manufacturing firms must develop to transform into advanced service providers. This dissertation also provides a capability maturity model that can help guide the capability development process in manufacturing firms. Finally, this dissertation contributes to our understanding of the role of individuals in the transformation process within firms. This is one of the first systematic attempts to provide a microfoundation-based view of individual-level influences on higher-level outcomes in the servitization literature.

    Development of integrated product/service offers through integration, or not?: A multiple case study of global manufacturing firms2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In a world where advanced engineering products are commoditized, many manufacturing companies now strive to improve differentiation and profitability by offering integrated combinations of products and services known as product-service systems (PSS). Prior literature has proposed that such integrated offers be developed through an integrated product/service development process, but has so far not studied such integration in detail. To this background, our purpose is to study how integrated product/service offers actually come about. Our results are somewhat surprising, and paradoxical. Through an inductive multiple case study across eight multinational companies, we find that effective alignment-not integration-is the key to developing successful integrated PSS offerings. Thus, an integrated PSS offer seems to be reached through alignment rater than integration. The paper also identifies the key factors that inhibit integration and the various mechanisms that support alignment, and provides theoretical implications for literature and managerial implications for better development of integrated PSS solutions.

    Exploring the microfoundations of servitization: How individual actions overcome organizational resistance2018In: Journal of Business Research, ISSN 0148-2963, E-ISSN 1873-7978, p. 328-336Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Servitization research has principally focused on the transition of organizational-level strategy, systems, capabilities, and processes for firms to be able to offer advanced services to their customers. Less is known of the underlying microfoundational dynamics of such transitions at the individual-level. Based on a multiple case study of six large multinational industrial firms engaged in servitization efforts, this paper identifies the tactics (i.e., evangelizing, bootlegging, leveraging, and collaborating) that individuals adopt to overcome organizational resistance to servitization. This study also presents the conditions that are necessary for individual employees to adopt these tactics. The present study provides theoretical and practical implications of the microfoundations of servitization, focusing attention on individual-level actions that affect the outcomes at the organizational-level to drive servitization efforts.

    Digitalization Capabilities as Enablers of Value Co-Creation in Servitizing Firms2017In: Psychology & Marketing, ISSN 0742-6046, E-ISSN 1520-6793, Vol. 34, no 1, p. 92-100Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As manufacturing companies pursue a servitization strategy, they are increasingly relying on developing digitalization capabilities to interact and co-create value with their customers. However, many lack an understanding of what constitutes digitalization capabilities and how they can create value with customers. To address these questions, the study builds on qualitative data from four industrial manufacturing firms to conceptualize three underlying subcomponents of digitalization capabilities, namely, intelligence capability, connect capability, and analytic capability. The study identifies and explains how digitalization capabilities enable value co-creation with customers through perceptive and responsive mechanisms. This study contributes to the servitization literature by showcasing how digitalization capabilities are enabling value co-creation in a business-to-business context.

    Corporate Social Responsibility: A comparatative case study of Schenker and DHL2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has been around for many years and one of the first definitions of this subject was created in the 1950s. The importance of CSR has increased over the years and today there are several different models and it is a wide spread tool that companies use to improve their business within the area’s economic-, legal- and ethical responsibilities. Companies can use this both as an advantage over competitors and as a way of attracting customers and employees. One of the major points in CSR is the environment and this part is becoming increasingly important in today’s society, where global warming due to CO2 emissions is an increasing concern. Also the interdependence between organizations and society is growing in significance, which also is a reason for the increased interest in CSR.

    This thesis focuses on what CSR is, to what purpose or goal companies engage in it and how the two chosen logistics companies, DHL and Schenker, work with CSR and what differences there are between them.

    This thesis is a cross case study of two logistics companies and to acquire the needed information, the authors have conducted document studies and interviews. These document studies and interviews have provided the thesis with a theoretical framework and a deeper understanding of how two of the largest logistics companies work with CSR.

    The results show that both companies are engaging in similar manner in the environmental responsibilities, but there are some major differences in how they deal with societal responsibilities. DHL uses its size and global presence to aid societies in need and help communities with educating their children. DB Schenker on the other hand focuses on cooperation’s with universities and also donates funds to schools and non-governmental organizations.

    Revisiting the Concept of Value Stream Mapping2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Value Stream Mapping is a common tool used in a lot of instances in today’s industrieswho have adopted any kind of Lean initiatives. However, Value Stream Mapping (VSM) may not always fit to the best extent and intention of the industry applying it; therefore a need for tailoring certain aspects of it have been seen in some cases where the original tool has not been enough. However there is little research on how to adopt VSM towards the tire industry, it is the case that some adaptation is needed in order to fully map the value the chain is trying to capture as seen by some authors who use VSM on other industries. This leads to conclude that further research is needed in order to see the benefits and chal-lenges in the creating of a tailored value stream tool in order to understand how it would affect the company its applied on as well as increasing the knowledge of its capabilities and drivers for it application.

    The impact this research would have is to begin bridging a gap of the usage of how a Tai-lored Value Stream Mapping (TVSM) tool would affect when applied to a specific industry. For this paper, a case study within a Tire Company located in Europe, who stated that they had issues regarding their current usage and utilization of VSM, was conducted. The com-pany has projects going all over the globe but sees a lack of initiative and success without the direct involvement of its central plant. The purpose of this research is to investigate the perceived impact as well as the benefits and challenges of utilizing a company TVSM, in-stead of a standardized one, taking into consideration both particularities of the industry, as well as the culture of the firm. Also an understanding is sought to recognize the motiva-tions that drove the Tire Company to choose a tailored approach.

    The research was conducted as a qualitative single case study involving three different sitesbelonging to the tire industry located in Europe. It is built upon both a theoretical part, comprised by a literature review of the concepts of VSM, Lean and TVSM; and an empiri-cal part derived from the case. The Empirical data was collected through semi-structured interviews as well as participant observations, supported by secondary data collected from the company in form of written documents concerning the internal training of VSM.

    The findings concluded that, the reasons for sustaining a TVSM are its ease of use, and ability to reach out and be understood by people with little to no training in VSM’s. The company fitted training documents would decrease the training needed and the time spent doing so. Some other benefits were the empowerment of employees and the sharing of knowledge across multiple sites in a standardized company language. Albeit with the chal-lenge of creating and upholding such documents and training, compelling the company to have experts with knowledge of VSM and the company processes and culture with the added challenge of also maintaining regularly updates as the company moves forward.

    Implementation of a tailored approach is practical where there has been identified that it exists a gap between different plants or departments, local or globally, regarding knowledge or experience when there is a requirement for standardisation, communication and need for change.

    Sökmotoroptimering och informationsdesign på en herrfrisörs webbplats: Search Engine Optimization and information design on a men’s hairdresser website2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Det här examensarbetet handlar om att skapa kundanpassad informationsdesign och

    genomtänkt sökmotoroptimering på en webbplats åt en frisörsalong för herrar. Arbetet

    har utförts i samarbete med företaget Hair & Nu, men resultatet är mer generellt för

    herrfrisörer. Hair & Nu’s nuvarande problem är att de inte har någon webbplats, och

    blir därför svårfunna med en nylanserad webbplats i den hårda konkurrensen som

    råder bland frisörsalonger. Under rapportens gång har följande två frågeställningar

    besvarats:

    • Vilken kundrelaterad information skall tillämpas på en herrfrisörs webbplats

    för att uppfylla kundgruppens behov?

    • Hur ska sökmotoroptimering användas på en herrfrisörs webbplats för att

    förbättra sökresultatet på Googles sökmotor?

    För att besvara frågeställningarna har vi utfört tre metoder; tre intervjuer, nio

    konkurrentanalyser och en enkätundersökning. Dessa tre metoder skapade en god

    balans genom rapporten och stärker varandras data.

    Empirin från metoderna visar vilken kundrelaterad information som är mest relevant

    och hur man ska applicera det på ens webbplats, det visar även vilka sökord och

    tekniska element som är viktigast i uppbyggnaden av sökmotoroptimeringen.

    Implikationerna av vår empiri angående sökmotoroptimering är relativt oklart

    eftersom analysen av det som applicerats på en webbplats endast kan göras efter två

    månader, och vi har inte den tiden.

    Begränsningarna syftar främst till Googles otydliga facit på hur en webbplats ska

    sökmotoroptimeras. Även uppkomsten av fördelaktiga hjälpprogram framkom under

    intervjuerna, och kunde varit till stor del för oss i början av processen.

    Interaktionsdesign är ett ämne som skulle kunna ha tillförts i uppbyggnaden av vår

    rapport, men med hänsyn till omfattningen är inte denna koppling möjlig.

    Integration of heterogeneous system landscapes into an ERP-system2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 80 credits / 120 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    As organizations operate globally, the necessity arises to integrate the own information systems with the business partners and customers in order to communicate and operate more efficiently. Those external systems are based upon different technologies. Thus, in some cases compatibility with the own information system infrastructure cannot be guaranteed. Due to their different characteristics these systems are collectively called heterogeneous system landscape. As a response to the necessity to integrate external systems, software solutions have been developed that promise the holistic management of business processes within one specific system in an efficient manner. However, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, originally introduced as “integrated suits”, often fail to deliver the necessary integration as they were mainly focused on integrating internal business functions. Therefore, this thesis aims to explore if Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) can solve the integration dilemma. EAI offers concepts and technologies that promise to integrate software that otherwise would be incompatible. This thesis focusses on the development of an integration framework, based on EAI principles, that can be used to integrate heterogeneous system landscapes into an ERP-system. The result is a five-layer integration framework that has been developed, based on existing theoretical research from within the Enterprise Application Integration field. During an internship at the German automotive company Daimler AG, the applicability of this framework has been tested by following the methodology of Design Science Research. This method is suited to solve organizational challenges that demand the creation and evaluation of IT solutions. In order to achieve the solution, a mixed methods approach was applied, collecting data from both primary- and secondary-sources by executing a literature review, observations as well as interviews. Conclusively, the author found that the developed integration infrastructure can serve as a starting point for ERP-system integration of a heterogeneous system landscape. In a later stage of the ERP-implementation an individual customization, executed by an expert, is advised.

    Parameters that Determine the Critical Point of a Product2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The increasing global competition and increasing customer demands have caused many manufacturing companies operating in a high cost environment to consider locating to low cost countries. However, it is not always the best decision to locate the entire business. Some choose to locate the production to low cost countries located intercontinental while the others is content with having production sites closer. There are numerous factors that determine where a company decides to locate, a common factor is reducing cost. But the cost is directly affected by the production process and what product that it is produced into the production process. If the production process is fixed in to different locations it is important to understand what parameters affects the change of location. The purpose is to investigate the parameters that decide the critical point of when a semi-finished product should be transported from one production location to another.

    A case study was made at an industrial company to meet the purpose to investigate the parameters that decide the critical point when a semi-finished product should be transported from one production location to another. To meet the purpose the data collection consisted of interviewing and reviewing documents as research method to gather information in order to answer the 2 research questions.

    The results show that different parameters needs to be considered when deciding the critical point of the product. This includes new product development, production system with the management approach, product architecture and performance objectives. The results show that these are the most essential parameters to work with before deciding where the critical point in the production process is. In addition, analysis of the results concluded that solving the communication barriers, production measurements and project stages in the product development is the main focus before making the final decision.

    Keywords

    Production process, critical point, performance objectives, NPD, product architecture, and production localization.

    Abstract [en]

    For each day that passes, boat owners aswell as boat manufactures becomes more and more aware of environmetal effects that are linked to our actions. The knowledge of the greenhouse effect, the uncontrolled felling of the rainforest, the energy consumption and our own health have grown rapidly among the people these last few years. The recrational craft/yacht industry is a very conservative market and interiors based on tropical hardwood has historically aswell as the present time been very popular materials among the boat consumers. However, because of the raised environmental awerness, people tend to be more accepting of alternative materials. This means that the recreational craft manufacturers can develope more environmentally friendly materials in order replace the traditional materials or to introduce new materials as an selection opportunity.

    This information is some of the facts that formed this thesis and the assignment where to develope and design a new more enviromental friendly boat interior. This thesis was completed in the spring of 2008 in cooperation with Nimbus Boats AB.

    The design of the interior has focused on accenting the new materials in the right way aswell as to add a more homogeneous formlanguage to the interior.

    This repport describes the methdology and result of the thesis which resultet in a new interior design together with the three new materialcompositions named ”Eco Classic”, ”Eco Modern” and ”Eco Exclusive”.

    Ljusnivåns påverkan på rums- och ljusupplevelsen: Vid användning av virtuella takfönster som komplement i fönsterlösa rum2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study aims to examine how virtual sky lights are perceived by people and discuss whether it is a suitable solution as a complement to the lack of windows. Previous studies have confirmed that there is a need to examine an alternative lighting solution in order to supplement the lack of windows. The stated goal for the current study was therefore to evince how a lighting solution of virtual sky lights with a high or low light level, together with ambient lighting of either high or low light level is perceived.  

        

    With this as a foundation, an experimental study has been conducted with participants who have experienced six different light scenes in a waiting room environment. The light scenes were distinguished between high and low light levels of the ambient lighting and of the LED-panels, which were also turned off in two light scenes. 

       

    The result has shown that there is a connection between the light level of the virtual sky lights and the perception of the room and the lighting. The participants preferred the LED-panels when they were turned on rather than turned off in the waiting room, in combination with an ambient lighting at a high or low light level. It was especially the third light scene, when both the ambient lighting and the LED-panels had a high light level that excelled the most and showed positive results. It indicates that the participants preferred this light scene the most.  It might be because the contrast of light was perceived most pleasantly, compared to the other five light scenes. 

     

    Further studies within the field is recommended by the authors to contribute to a deeper knowledge about how virtual sky lights can be applied, to create user adapted lighting environments in rooms that lack windows. The perception of more light levels should therefore be investigated, also more types of environments should be investigated, study environments is one suggestion. It could contribute to a wider knowledge about possible application areas of virtual sky lights as a complement in windowless rooms.

    Vilket KONSTigt bruksförmål!: Relationen mellan konstnärliga värden och bruksvärden.2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis treats artistic values and utilization values. The purpose is to examine the relationship between these values and describe the design process to produce a product. We want to try to develop a product that can combine artistic values and utilization values. 

    The basis for the choice of topic in our thesis is that there is a general problem to draw the boundaries between art and design, and what constitutes art and design in a product. There is no absolute answer on which all have different views about this. This makes it difficult to obtain a precise and specific answer. We have therefore chosen to study the concept of crafts, art, design, utilization value and originality as a foundation for our two questions.

    1. What is the relationship between artistic values and utilization values?

    2. How can these values be combined in articles for everyday use?

    The method we have used in the course of our work is to work along two parallel processes; a design process and a theoretical process. 

    Documentation of methodology and implementation has resulted in an informative text, as well as visualization of our product.                                                                      The result is a stool which was named Spool.

    Digitala skyltar i stadsmiljö: Utvärdering av ljusemitterande storbildsskärmars kontrastförhållande och påverkan på det upplevda stadsrummet2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis aims to provide municipalities and professionals with a reasonable starting point when planning for light emitting signs in urban environments, thus contributing to perceptually cohesive urban spaces. The questions raised in this report examine appropriate contrast ratios as well as digital signage’s impact on the spatial experience.

    Based on scientific theory concerning human vision, spatial experience and digital signage’s a 20-square meter digital sign was installed at Tändstickstorget in Jönköping, where a field experiment took place on the 15th of March 2017. The sign was programmed into six different scenarios with regard to its screen luminance and contrast ratio to its immediate surroundings, all of which were reviewed by 20 respondents. Furthermore, an extensive visual evaluation was carried out to investigate the perceptual impact the digital sign had on the city square, with the sign set to the scenario deemed most pleasant.

    The results show that a low contrast ratio between the light emitting sign and its immediate surroundings is preferred to a high ratio, seeing as a clear correlation between high contrasts and discomfort has been identified. Moreover, the results show that a digital sign makes the urban space perceptually darker overall, whilst at the same time affecting the form and size of the space. Competition arises between the local landmarks and the sign, as its luminous surface becomes the dominant object in the field of view.

    It is clear from the study that decisions regarding the implementation of digital signs in urban environments should be strengthened with a good knowledgebase, which the results along with the measurement data form developed specifically for the study intends to contribute with.

    Purchasing digital items in free to play games: Investigating personality theory through an explorative study of League of Legends2016Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The continuous growth of the gaming industry develops a highly competitive environment, which provides an incubator of innovation. These conditions lead to the emergence of new business models. Free to play as one of those newly and still developing models is currently trending among the game developing and publishing companies. Delivering skyrocketing profits, the full potential of the model is yet to be revealed. At first sight, the model has a simplistic structure on the business side, however, on the user side it is unclear what motivates players to become customers through the purchase of digital items in the games.

    This research uses an exploratory and qualitative approach to collect data and identify purchasing behaviour stimuli. It also proposes an option of connecting personality theories as a possible explanation to the purchasing behaviour of players. As a focus for this study, the currently most successful free to play game, League of Legends, was selected and twelve interviews with League of Legends players were conducted.

    The interviews consisted of two parts, one semi-structured and the other one structured. The semi-structured interview aimed at identifying purchasing behaviour and finding reasons for the purchase of digital items in League of Legends. The second was a personality assessment test, Keirsey Temperament Sorter2.

    A conventional content analysis of the interviews identified the theme “personal satisfaction” as the main motivation for purchasing digital items. The investigation regarding the proposed connection to personality theory, the research’s results fail to show any connection. However, answering research question number one unveils the importance of the personality factor remains valid and a subject of future research. The research discusses possibilities and direction for future research in the face of testing other than the applied Keirsey personality theory.

    Virtual Reality Games for Team Building Interventions: Comparison of team building interventions for university students2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Teams are essential in today’s organisations. Thus, it is important to enable students early in the education process to work in teams. Moreover, we have new technologies emerging such as virtual reality (VR), that have the possibility to influence processes such as team building interventions. In addition, many researchers claim the importance of games in teaching as it leads to high engagement. Even though, there is much research available in the areas of VR, team building and games, no research connecting all three topics can be found. Nevertheless, it can be observed that VR and games have been used in teaching before, however not at the same time to enhance teamwork skills. This research provides a thorough literature review on the current possibilities and applications of VR in teaching and defines effective team building. Moreover, games in teaching and their possibilities and advantages are described. Eventually, the purpose of this study is to find out if team building interventions with the help of VR are more effective in comparison to non-VR based methods. We add to existing research by enhancing current team building techniques through VR technology. Being aware of the nature of this research we combine a qualitative and quantitative approach, namely content analysis and A/B testing, to research this topic. To support the content analysis, we apply a teamwork framework defined by Rosseau, Aubé and Savoie (2006). To validate our experiment results from A/B testing we triangulate by conducting an additional experiment. The analysis of this study shows that VR based team building interventions trigger more team processes than team building interventions without VR. Furthermore, the research points out possible future directions of studies since VR for team building is a rather new topic and thus needs to be further researched. Finally, the study can be used to encourage students and teachers at University level to apply VR technology when the opportunity is given

    The Influence Of Outsourcing Production On Performance Objectives In A Manufacturing SME Context2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The increasing globalisation leads to tougher competition caused by various options that come along such as outsourcing production to Asia. The success of a company depends on its ability to stay competitive compared to other companies. Outsourcing production to Asia includes high amount of planning to have an equal set-up level as in Sweden. Therefore, the development of a long-term strategy is recommended. However, most manufacturing SMEs do not formulate a long-term strategy but act mainly on a day-to-day basis. This Master’s thesis examines the influence of outsourcing production on the performance objectives in a manufacturing SME context. Thus, reasons on which outsourcing decisions in manufacturing SMEs can be based on are investigated. Further, it was studied if outsourcing had effects on manufacturing SMEs performance objectives. This examination should support the awareness of the interdependence of outsourcing on the performance objectives, i.e. quality, flexibility, speed, dependability and cost. This recommends a long-term strategy to successfully outsource production.

    The Master’s thesis consists of an extensive literature review to create the context of the topic and is supported by two case studies. These case studies took place in form of interviews in two manufacturing SMEs in Sweden that already outsourced the production. The literature presents several reasons that motivate a company to outsource its production, whereas there are only few findings regarding the effects of the process on the company’s performance objectives. Empirical data indicate that SMEs mainly reasoned their decisions on the cost savings. Whereas the main reason was one-sided, the effects the companies had to deal with were manifold. It showed that focussing only on cost might lead the company to unforeseen situations that need to be addressed and can prolong a process or increase the costs.

    Nästa nivå av ständiga förbättringar inom små- och medelstora företag: En fallstudie om beteenden för ett långsiktigt och konkurrenskraftigt arbete med ständiga förbättringar inom små- och medelstora företag2017Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte – Syftet med denna studie är att ta fram riktlinjer för hur små- och medelstora företag (SMF) kan skapa förutsättningar för ett långsiktigt och konkurrenskraftigt arbete med ständiga förbättringar. För att svara på syftet ställs följande två frågeställningar:

    • ·        Vilka beteenden, som påverkar arbetet med ständiga förbättringar, framträder hos SMF?
    • ·        Vilka konsekvenser har de identifierade beteendena på förbättringsförmågan och det långsiktiga förbättringsarbetet inom SMF?

    Metod – Studien har genomförts genom en fallstudie på fallföretaget Emballator Ulricehamn bleck AB. Studien utgår från det teoretiska ramverket som har utformats genom en litteratursökning på områdena ständiga förbättringar och SMF-kontexten. Data har samlats in genom intervjuer, observationer och en enkätundersökning och har baserats på Bessant, Caffyn, & Gallagher (2001) analysmodell “An evolutionary model of continuous improvement behaviour”. 

     

    Resultat – Resultatet av studien innebar att de olika beteendena från analysmodellen var framträdande, var delvist framträdande eller icke framträdande. De beteendena inom nyckelförmågan ”Leda vägen” var starkt framträdande medan de inom ”Fokusera ständiga förbättringar”, ”Inrikta ständiga förbättringar” och ”Ständigt förbättra ständiga förbättringar” var svagt framträdande. Att dessa nyckelförmågor inte finns har en negativ konsekvens på det långsiktiga arbetet med ständiga förbättringar. Studien har även påvisat att SMF-kontexten i många fall hindrar att dessa beteenden skapas varpå fem riktlinjer har tagits fram för att istället främja arbetet med ständiga förbättringar.

     

    Implikationer – Studien utgår från befintlig teori om tendenser för SMF och beteenden kopplat till ständiga förbättringar. Studien visar på motsättningar mellan dessa tendenser och beteenden som främjar arbetet med ständiga förbättringar, vilket kan bidra till förståelse och möjlighet för SMF att hantera dessa motsättningar. Studien har resulterat i riktlinjer för vad SMF bör fokusera på inom ständiga förbättringar, vilket ger möjlighet att prioritera vad som behöver utvecklas för att skapa ett hållbart arbete. Detta för att skapa och utveckla förmågor till ett långsiktigt arbete med ständiga förbättringar som i sin tur kan leda till konkurrensfördelar och motståndskraftiga SMF.

    Begränsningar – Studien främsta begränsning är att resultatet bygger på ett begränsat antal personers upplevda situation kring arbetet med ständiga förbättringar, detta kanske inte är representativt för hela företaget. Att studien är en enfallsstudie kan begränsa möjligheterna att generalisera resultatet till andra SMF.

     

    Nyckelord – Ständiga förbättringar, förbättringsarbete, Små-och medelstora företag (SMF), beteenden, tillverkande företag.

    Abstract [en]

    Currently in the field of management, enhancement, territory and cultural heritage analysis, two types of information systems offer significant tools: GIS (Geographic Information System) and AIS (Architectural Information System). The first one manages urban and territorial scale data, the second one administers architectural scale data. For a complete management and analysis of heritage both scales (territorial-urban and architectural) are essential. But despite numerous attempts made in recent years, currently no system is really able to manage them simultaneously. This study aimes to create a hybrid system, which is a new interface that allows to simultaneously view an AIS, a GIS and a window for management of spatial queries. Considering the profound differences between the two systems, the ultimate goal is to integrate them by proposing a new hybrid system (HS) to solve the problem of scale change (from analysis to synthesis) using a new data structure and a new interface. To achieve the ultimate goal it has been studied mainly: a) the possibilities of implementation of the two systems; b) spatial analysis and 3D topology

    Currently in the field of management, enhancement, territory and cultural heritage analysis, two types of information systems offer significant tools: GIS (Geographic Information System) and AIS (Architectural Information System). The first one manages urban and territorial scale data, the second one administers architectural scale data. For a complete management and analysis of the built heritage, both scales (territorial-urban and architectural) are essential, but despite numerous attempts made in recent years, currently no system is really able to manage them simultaneously. After a thorough analysis of both types of systems, and a careful study of the state of the art, this research aims to create a hybrid system, which is a new interface that allows to simultaneously view an AIS, a GIS and a window for the management of spatial queries. Considering the deep differences between the two systems, the ultimate goal is to integrate them by proposing a new hybrid system (HS) to solve the problem of scale change (from analysis to synthesis) using a new data structure and a new interface.

    Variety Management in Industrial Plant Engineering: An Assessment of Methods to Support the Development of Modular Product Architectures2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Companies operating in the field of industrial plant engineering need to become more efficient in the development of highly customized plants in order to hold out against increasing global competition. The development of modular product architectures or simply modularization is an approach to variety management that enables benefits for customized plants regarding the competitive factors cost, quality, and time. Several researchers dedicated their work to modularization which resulted in a number of existing methods aimed at supporting the development of modular product architectures. However, very little research has been conducted on modularization regarding the specific needs of low volume, high variety products that characterize industrial plants. The research within this thesis explored to what extent the existing methods aimed at supporting the development of modular product architectures are suitable for the application at a company operating in the field of industrial plant engineering.

    Since the literature in this research area lacked a clear and widely accepted vocabulary, an unambiguous terminology was defined at first (RQ1). Thereafter, a case study was employed to explore the requirements a manufacturer of wood-processing plants places on a method to support the development of modular product architectures (RQ2). A total number of thirteen requirements were derived from the case study reflecting the needs of a company operating in the field of industrial plant engineering. Subsequently, a literature review was carried out to identify the existing methods aimed at supporting the development of modular product architectures (RQ3). Hereby, nineteen methods were identified and characterized. Ultimately, the requirements derived from the case study were used as evaluation criteria to assess the existing methods (RQ4).

    This thesis contributes to the theoretical understanding of the concepts associated with the development of modular product architectures. The overview and characterization of methods provides information for everyone interested in the methodological support for modularization. Furthermore, the requirements analysis at a manufacturer of wood-processing plants gave insights into the specific needs of a company operating in the field of industrial plant engineering. The advantages and shortcomings of the individual methods with regards to the requirements are presented in an overview. The analysis showed that none of the existing methods meet all of the imposed requirements fully. The best score a method achieved is 77%. Therefore, an application of the existing methods at a company operating in the field of industrial plant engineering is not possible without constraints. The combination and further development of existing methods was suggested as area of future research to provide a satisfactory methodological support for the development of modular product architectures in industrial plant engineering.

    EFFEKTIVISERING AV ARBETSPROCESSER INOM EN PALLIATIV VÅRDENHET2015Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syfte - Syftet med studien är att identifiera utmaningar till varför ineffektivitet uppstår inom en palliativ vårdenhets arbetsprocess och hur de kan hanteras. För att uppfylla syftet har två frågeställningar formulerats: 1. Vilka orsaker till en ineffektiv arbetsprocess finns inom en palliativ vårdenhet? 2. Hur kan de identifierade orsakerna till en ineffektiv arbetsprocess inom en palliativ vårdenhet hanteras? Metod - Författarna har använt sig av en fall- och litteraturstudie för att kunna forma ett ramverk om effektivisering av arbetsprocesser inom svensk hälso- och sjukvård. Datainsamlingen har grundats på primär- och sekundärdata med hjälp av intervjuer och litteraturstudier. Den insamlade datan har sedan analyserats med hjälp av fiskbensdiagram för att underlätta strukturen med hänsyn till problem och dess förbättringsförslag. Resultat – Studien visar tre grundorsaker till ineffektiva arbetsprocesser inom en palliativ vårdenhet. Dessa tre orsaker är bristande informationsutbyte, brist på standardisering, och avsaknaden av helhetssyn. För att kunna hantera dessa utmaningar har författarna presenterat förslag och verktyg för att kunna effektivisera verksamheten. Författarna har även lagt märke till att de tre utmaningarna hänger ihop och på så sätt kommer det att underlätta elimineringen av dessa. Verktyg som används för att dessa problemlösningar ska uppnås presenteras i studien. Implikationer – Denna studie har fastställt både stora och små förbättringsförslag inom arbetsprocessen. Vid hantering av en ineffektiv arbetsprocess är det viktigt att varje enskild verksamhet själva utvärderar vad som är mest kritisk för deras situation och hur de skall hanteras. Förbättringarna skulle resultera till ökad effektivitet och standardisering på arbetsprocessen. Begränsningar - Studien är enbart utförd på en palliativ vårdenhet. Detta kan ses som en begränsning eftersom analys utav flera fall hade gett olika eller möjligen samma resultat. Fokus på studien har varit att ta fram effektiva arbetsprocesser inom en palliativ vårdenhet. Författarna har endast tagit hänsyn till egna observationer samt personalens synpunkter. Nyckelord- Vårdlogistik, svensk hälso- och sjukvård, arbetsprocess, Lean Healthcare, standardisering, helhetssyn, informationsutbyten.

    Improving the Usability of a Q&A Platform: A design process based on the principles of Lean UX – adapted to a given start-up environment2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This Bachelor thesis is about digital tools for event organisers. The platforms offered by companies serve as digital backchannels that among other things facilitate interactions between audience and stage, for example during live Q&A sessions. This work focuses on the tasks and challenges of moderators on site and aims to develop a system that will optimise their workflows. Therefore, a tool is developed that allows moderators to conduct a Q&A session independently without having to rely on the assistance of an event organiser operating a desktop based platform simultaneously. The analysis addresses the moderator's role and tasks. It turns out that the functions of the platform relevant to the moderator can be combined in a mobile interface that is linked to it. Using a semi- structured expert interview, the feedback from clients of the start-up "Happenn" is gathered, which use the already existing platform of the company. Their platform "Happenn Live" serves as case study for this thesis. On the basis of the findings of the methods adapted to Lean UX, a solution approach in the form of a redesign of the platform and a corresponding mobile application for moderators is conceptualised. The structure and visual design of the platform follows the general design standards for desktop- and mobile-based interfaces. In this way, an improved usability can be achieved by making the platform more user-friendly for the user.

    Improving material flow and production layout using Value Stream Mapping: A case study in a manufacturing company2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The movement and handling of material are necessary activities, however, commonly regarded as waste. Moving and handling material more times and over longer distance than necessary is time consuming, costly and unproductive. Therefore, a suitable material handling (MH) system with appropriate facility layout is advocated. The purpose of this thesis is to explore options for material flow improvements and handling of material in production area. This comprises of a study of the material flow from storage to production areas and the handling of material in production section A. If necessary for improvements of material flow, a change in layout design will be recommended. The research approach for this thesis is a case study where data has been collected from documents, observations and interviews. The study shows that 9 % of the production time of one article is spent on manual material handling (MMH). These activities are classified as both waste and necessary, however not adding any value. The same applies for the material flow. Unnecessary distances of movements are caused by the current location of storage, operations and lack of proper structure for handling and moving material. The contribution of this study is a list of suggestions for improving the material flow and handling. Changes for improvements are, namely, availability of appropriate equipment, storing materials closer to the operations and investing in automation and vision systems with cameras of robots. The material flow and the way the material is handled can further beimproved by a change in the layout of the production area. Connecting and rearranging operations can shorter and ease the movement of material with ample space to handle the material.

    Förbättring av hanteringen vid utrikesfrakter på ITAB Shop Concept AB Jönköping2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Our purpose with this report is to create a structural basis over how to improve handling with international freight at ITAB Shop Concept (further mentioned as ITAB). We have through interviews with employees at ITAB and observations identified problems that have caused difficulties at handling with international freight, from the time when an order is placed to when it’s delivered to the customer. We have also interviewed shipping companies.

    We have in the theory chapter written about shipping conditions for international freight and a main part of our theory is about NSAB 2000, which describes the obligations and rights shippers and consignee has.

    In order to improve the efficiency ITAB has to be aware of the problems in the company and try to solve them.

    The problems we have identified are described in the result chapter. One of the problems is that employees at the warehouse don’t know when gods is supposed to be shipped. This may result into gods being left over in the warehouse. We have in the analyze chapter listed our solutions to solve this problem and it has first priority in our classification table which are discussed further below. The classification table consist of problems that we have identified and each problem has a priority. The priority is based from two criteria’s, how difficult it’s to solve and how important it’s to solve the problem. We have thereafter multiplied these two criteria’s to get a priority list. The problems with the lowest points are the ones we suggest ITAB should solve first.

    Fördelning av artiklar mellan varuhuslager och varuutlämningslager2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose with this thesis is to examine how items can be distributed between stores inventory and an external warehouse. To achieve the purpose criteria that should be considered, how these can be prioritized and used when distributing items between stores inventory and an external warehouse will be examined.

    Method – The study started by an examination of the theory that already exists within the subject. The already existing theory has then been examined in reality, on the furniture company IKEA Jönköping, where a case study with one channel has been performed. Empirical data has been collected by interviews with the persons involved in the distributing process, observations of the distributing process and by documents taken from IKEA Jönköping’s system. The empirical data have been compared and analyzed with the available theory. Also an interview with a well established retailer in electronics industry has been performed, whose distributing process has been compared to IKEA Jönköping´s process.

    Findings – The criteria identified include what sales rate the item has, which product family the item is included in, what size the item has and if items have similar properties. Priority can be given differently depending on which item it is about. The distributing process is dynamic, which means an item that has been given a certain place in the warehouse may not keep the place in the future. The process is dynamic since the criteria constantly are changing. Guidelines of how the distributing process should be performed have been developed.

    Implications – This study provides knowledge and insight on how items can be distributed between stores inventory and an external warehouse and what criteria that the distributing can be based on. It already exist some theory within the subject and this study may contribute to further theory. Companies should ensure which items to be placed, how they are related to each other and their condition.  

    Research limitations – The technique of collecting empirical data complemented each other well but one thing that can be criticized is the number of observations that has been performed. In this study only one observation of the distributing for each warehouse has been performed. The results of these observations have then been compared with the results of the interviews. Suggested one more observation of distributing for each warehouse could have been performed to ensure that the process is performed consistently. A further shortage with this study is the choise of a single case study. To be able to draw generalized conclusion a multiple case study had been more appropriate.

    Search engine optimisation in WordPress: An experimental study examining the opportunities for a website to receive a high ranking on Google Search2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Receiving visitors from organic search could be crucial for the traffic to a website, and the success of the company behind it. In this experimental study, the hypothesis that a website can be displayed on the first page of Google Search within 27 days, is being tested. The investigation includes constructing a field experiment based on a newly created WordPress site, to discover its search engine optimisation possibilities using Google Search. Both on-page and off-page optimisation are composed and implemented, which goes under the technical part of search engine optimisation. Among these are techniques within the source code, content and meta tags of the website. The results are being analysed through its status in search engines and ranking in the search results. Factors that could have affected the results of the experiment in a positive or negative way are investigated to understand the field of search engine optimisation.

    It is concluded that there are many factors that could influence the results of the experiment. It is not possible to see the specific factor that made the variations of keywords succeed or fail, as well as the quality of the entire search engine optimisation of the website. Therefore, it is hard to determine what techniques, within search engine optimisation, are worth allocating resources to and what to avoid. This study is confirming that search engine optimisation could generate positive results for a website regarding the ranking in Google Search, even within a limited time frame. It is found out that the highest ranking is mainly achieved for specific and nished keywords, avoiding competing with well established companies. Independent which methods that are most effective and relevant, the importance of search engine optimisation is established through this research.

    Increasing sales forecast accuracy with technique adoption in the forecasting process2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

     

    Purpose - The purpose with this thesis is to investigate how to increase sales forecast accuracy.

     

    Methodology – To fulfil the purpose a case study was conducted. To collect data from the case study the authors performed interviews and gathered documents. The empirical data was then analysed and compared with the theoretical framework.

     

    Result – The result shows that inaccuracies in forecasts are not necessarily because of the forecasting technique but can be a result from an unorganized forecasting process and having an inefficient information flow. The result further shows that it is not only important to review the information flow within the company but in the supply chain as whole to improve a forecast’s accuracy. The result also shows that time series can generate more accurate sales forecasts compared to only using qualitative techniques. It is, however, necessary to use a qualitative technique when creating time series. Time series only take time and sales history into account when forecasting, expertise regarding consumer behaviour, promotion activity, and so on, is therefore needed. It is also crucial to use qualitative techniques when selecting time series technique to achieve higher sales forecast accuracy. Personal expertise and experience are needed to identify if there is enough sales history, how much the sales are fluctuating, and if there will be any seasonality in the forecast. If companies gain knowledge about the benefits from each technique the combination can improve the forecasting process and increase the accuracy of the sales forecast.

     

    Conclusions – This thesis, with support from a case study, shows how time series and qualitative techniques can be combined to achieve higher accuracy. Companies that want to achieve higher accuracy need to know how the different techniques work and what is needed to take into account when creating a sales forecast. It is also important to have knowledge about the benefits of a well-designed forecasting process, and to do that, improving the information flow both within the company and the supply chain is a necessity.   

     

    Research limitations – Because there are several different techniques to apply when creating a sales forecast, the authors could have involved more techniques in the investigation. The thesis work could also have used multiple case study objects to increase the external validity of the thesis.

    Cloud manufacturing from a production development perspective2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Enterprises, companies and manufacturing industry are reshaping their business and manufacturing models, because of highly competitive markets that originates from the globalization phenomenon. Following that, new engineering paradigms and concepts are being used to achieve optimum level of agility, flexibility, creativity, efficiency and collaboration among the industries and businesses with distributed environments. The cloud computing concept was presented to satisfy the need for more availability, reliability and scalability in distributed environments. Succeeding that, the cloud manufacturing concept was presented to facilitate the adaption and overcoming the limitations of cloud computing concept in industry. According to previous research, further investigations from specific perspectives is needed to affect the executives, engineers and manager’s comprehension toward adaption of cloud manufacturing, because they still hesitate to consider the cloud manufacturing concept as a catalyst for facilitation of their transformation process toward globalization. The purpose of this thesis is to facilitate the understanding of the cloud manufacturing concept among production managers and engineers and the aim is to build a common ground and present a unified picture about the current state and contributions of the cloud manufacturing concept to production related activities. The thesis uses a systematic literature review methodology followed by a quantitative descriptive analysis and a qualitative analysis of contents. The analysis was made related to the Y model description of production activities. The findings indicate that, the cloud manufacturing concept can contribute to all the functions within production but the state of coverage of functions is not homogeneous and not yet enough so that production managers and engineers can consider using the cloud manufacturing solutions. Following that, the cloud manufacturing concept is still in the beginning of its path from providing functional solutions towards the point of being a generally usable concept with practical solutions for production development activities. Hence, to build a common ground which can lead to the creation of usable cloud manufacturing solutions with tangible outcomes, more attention must be paid to how to operationalize the contribution to each separate function of production, especially those that are less researched at the moment.

    FATIGUE MODEL: Stiffness prediction of damaged laminates based on the concept of damaged layers' effective stiffness2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Despite composite materials are widely used in many applications, prediction on damage mechanism of the composite materials is still very difficult. Using the findings from the research on damage mechanism under fatigue loading, its transverse cracking and its crack opening and sliding displacement, a mathematical model has been developed. The model showed results closer to the real-time experimental results in crack initiation and growth. The aim of the thesis is to develop a computational tool using the mathematical model and effective stiffness concept of the layers with cracks to predict the degradation of the longitudinal young’s modulus and shear modulus of the composite laminate. In addition to that, graphical user interface is also created making the user control the tool easily. The tool developed shows promising results but still lacks the information on the effects of delamination on crack opening displacement and effective shear modulus.

    Visual comfort in nursing rooms, from a patient’s perspective2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The awareness regarding important aspects of how to plan and design healthcare environments is something that is constantly progressing. Even though these environments can be seen as complex, the knowledge and understanding of its many different users is often taken into consideration in today’s planning. Several studies have shown positive effects on the visual performance among the hospital staff but also positive effects regarding visual comfort that facilitates recovery and well-being among patients. However, when planning lighting in healthcare environments today, the focus often lies on providing good lighting qualities regarding the visual performance of the hospital staff and the patients are, by that, not taken in consideration to the same level of extent. Therefore this study was focused on analyzing if certain demands could be set on lighting in a nursing room, to improve the experience of visual comfort, from a patient perspective, while using two different lighting scenarios.

    The thesis has been conducted using an already approved and widely used method Evidence based design (EBD) through a literature study, a pre-study, and an experiment. This to evaluate and develop an innovative design to facilitate visual comfort from a patient's perspective. The visual parameters that the experiment has been focusing on are glare, luminance, contrasts, shadows, lighting principles, and the perception of objects. These parameters have been evaluated from a sitting, standing and lying position in two different lighting scenarios, developed from the hypothesis, without access to daylight. A healthcare environment has a number of different users, that all use the facilities in different ways. Therefore it was important that the innovative design, constructed for the experiment, did not compromise the visual comfort or need of light for the other users. A questionnaire was created, based on the visual parameters, to help answer the research questions. The experiment had a total of 30 participants, where each participant answered the questionnaire six times, one for each position and a total of three times in each lighting scenario.  

    The results were compiled and the mean values were analyzed to evaluate differences and similarities between the two lighting scenarios and between the positions. The results of the experiment show that there are certain demands that can be set on the artificial lighting in a nursing room, and it also shows that it is of great importance to plan for a various lighting environment since it can enhance the experience of visual comfort. Despite this, it is important for a lighting designer to carefully analyze and evaluate the patient's need for light in the specific ward that is being designed. To achieve a sustainable lighting solution it is important to remember that all the sustainability factors, such as the social, economic and environmental factors, are equally important to create a sustainable development.

    Developing global service innovation capabilities: How global manufacturers address the challenges of market heterogeneity2015In: Research technology management, ISSN 0895-6308, E-ISSN 1930-0166, Vol. 58, no 5, p. 35-44Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As multinational manufacturing companies pursue service innovation toward global markets, their back-end development units (i.e. R&D headquarters) face immense challenges due to market heterogeneity. Our extensive studies of 14 leading multinational companies in service innovation have identified, analyzed, and ranked challenges to reveal the key steps to building necessary capabilities. Based on our analysis, we explain how back-end units develop four sub-dimensions of global service innovation capabilities (service offerings, digitalization, customer insights, and integrating global knowledge) to manage their relationships with regional front-end units and subsequently drive service innovation. In developing these capabilities, the back-end units progressively learn to collaborate, integrate, and orchestrate processes and activities across and within regional front-end units, customers, and service partners from heterogeneous global markets.

    Optimizing the cross cutting operation using research design metod2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A cost efficient process is the goal of every part of the wood processing chain. It is directly related to a yield that is gained out of a raw material. On the other hand these processes have to deliver a certain product quality in order to satisfy customer needs. Very often a tradeoff has to be made between the yield and theproduct quality through optimization processes. The main objective of this work was to study if the research design can be used for the purpose of predictingscanning operation parameters, in order to maximize the yield and keep the mean length of the accepted pieces of center boards at a desired value. The obtained partial least squares (PLS) regression models quite accurately predicted optimum operating settings for the given material. This method can be used to achieve the goal of optimizing the cross cutting operation. Nevertheless the knowledge about the origin of processed boards in terms of the log type they were sawn from is significant, since developed models differed between each other accordingly.

    Crack Detection and Classification of Oak Lamellas Using Online and Ultrasound Excited Thermography2015In: Pro Ligno, ISSN 1841-4737, E-ISSN 2069-7430, Vol. 11, no 4, p. 464-470Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    On-line thermography and ultrasound-excited thermography have been evaluated for the detection of cracks in oak lamellae of flooring top layers. Image acquisition accompanied the tests and the objects were identified by post-processing and the evaluation of lamella images. The results were validated by comparing these findings with the actual state of the lamellae in terms of cracks and the classification accuracy of the method was calculated. The classification accuracy of the ultrasoundexcited thermography method was three times greater than that of on-line thermography. The main conclusion is that the ultrasound-excited thermography method is the more suitable for the detection of cracks and the classification of lamellae.

    INTEGRATION AV SMARTPHONE TILL EN ELRULLSTOLS STYRSYSTEM2013Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This report describes a thesis, carried out in collaboration with the company Permobil AB. The project was conducted as a final task in the three-year Bachelor of Science program in Computer Engineering, with specialization in web development, at the School of Engineering in Jönköping.

    The project's main task was to investigate the possibilities to connect a smartphone to an electric wheelchair of the brand Permobil, and be able to operate it with the same controls that are used to control the wheelchair.

    An earlier solution to use basic phone functions such as calling and texting is already accessible. However, this is a very outdated and slow solution. In consultation with the company, we decided that it was not worthwhile to further develop the old solution. Instead, a new system was to be developed where a normal smartphone would be operated.

    Our goal was to develop a good enough prototype that the company could be convinced to further develop the product. A small part of the project was also to, with an inquiry; examine what functionality (read, applications) was interesting to the products potential customers.

    The development of the prototype was divided into three iterations. The goal of the first iteration was to create a test application where USB communication worked, and begin to develop a control interface. In the second iteration we designed the basic structure of the application, and in the third we developed a number of basic functions, such as SMS client and phonebook.

    In our report, it appears that a successful prototype has been developed, with potential for further development. Unfortunately we did not manage to collect enough information to summarize the results to a source-critical analysis of the demand. The information collected is however presented in the report, but should not be considered a safe source.

    Implementing sustainable product–service systems utilizing business model activities2017In: Procedia CIRP, ISSN 2212-8271, E-ISSN 2212-8271, Vol. 64, p. 61-66Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To stay competitive and comply with government legislation, many global manufacturing companies try to diminish their environmental impact and avoid commoditization of their products by offering sustainable product–service systems (PSS). Offering PSS successfully is highly challenging, however, and significant interfirm heterogeneity exists with regard to successful PSS provision. Based on multiple case studies in two global manufacturing companies, the importance of the business model as an organizing device to align and coordinate key activities and scarce resources in PSS is highlight. The analysis provides insights into the underlying building blocks that will help firms implement a PSS business model and provides new implications for analyzing and improving PSS offers.
