  3. 3. Cost efficency of nonresponse rate reduction efforts : an evaluation approach

    Author : Sara Westling; Bengt Swensson; Risto Lehtonen; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nonresponse bias; follow-ups; response distribution; resource allocation; cost efficiency; evaluation; nonresponse error; Monte Carlo simulations; Statistics; Statistik; Statistics; Statistik;

    Abstract : Nonresponse, the failure to obtain complete measurement on all sample elements, is an increasing problem in sample surveys. Efforts to reduce the nonresponse rate are expensive and their effect may not be as desired. READ MORE

  4. 4. Configuration Design of a High Performance and Responsive Manufacturing System : Modeling and Evaluation

    Author : Daniel Tesfamariam Semere; Bengt Lindberg; Bolmsjö Gunnar; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Configuration; Modeling; Evaluation; Manufacturing engineering; Produktionsteknik;

    Abstract : Configuring and reconfiguring a manufacturing system is presented as an issue with increasing importance due to higher frequency of system configuration or major reconfigurations to accommodate new set of requirements and/or the need to configure the system to make it usable across generations of products or product families. This research has focused in the modeling, evaluation and selection decisions which involves multiple, incommensurate and conflicting objectives. READ MORE
