  1. 1. Handling severe uncertainty in strategic project appraisal : Methods and applications of context analysis

    Author : Anton Talantsev; Aron Larsson; David Sundgren; John Ward; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Decision Intelligence; Deep Uncertainty; Scenario Analysis; Multiple Criteria Decision Analysis; Simulation; Context Analysis; Project Appraisal; Risk Assessment; Threat and Opportunity; data- och systemvetenskap; Computer and Systems Sciences;

    Abstract : The long-term success or failure of a strategic project is largely shaped by its context. Therefore, the assessment of the external factors influencing the fulfilment of project long-term goals is vital for the effective project appraisal and planning. READ MORE

  2. 2. The knowledge problem of public transport policy

    Author : Erik Johansson; Trafik och väg; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Public transport; Planning; Appraisal; Evaluation; Public transport; Planning; Appraisal; Evaluation;

    Abstract : The overall aim of the thesis is to investigate the knowledge problem in regional public transport planning. The knowledge problem is twofold. How do transport policy arrive at the desirable actions they take and how do they assess the alternatives, and what can we say about the contributions of already implemented transport schemes.

  3. 3. Lessons Learned in Knowledge Managment - the case of construction

    Author : Mats Persson; Byggproduktion; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Construction technology; Industriell ekonomi; Anläggningsteknik; Quality Management; Project Management; Knowledge Management; Construction sector; Commercial and industrial economics;

    Abstract : The construction sector has been criticised in recent years for being inefficient. The critique involved describes finished buildings as having flaws and there being a lack of interest within the construction sector in assembling knowledge and sharing experience. READ MORE

  4. 4. Evidence-based practice behind the scenes : How evidence in social work is used and produced

    Author : Alexander Björk; Anders Bergmark; Lena Hübner; Morten Sager; Oscarsson Lars; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Evidence-based practice; Evidence-based medicine; Addiction severity index; Motivational interviewing; critical appraisal; ethnography; social work; substance abuse; science and technology studies; standardization; socialt arbete; Social Work;

    Abstract : The aim of this dissertation is to examine empirically what Evidence-based practice (EBP) and its standardized procedures become when put into practice in social work. EBP builds on the idea that professional practice should be based on systematic and reliable knowledge of the interventions and instruments used in this work. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fundamentals of a Methodology for Predictive Design Analysis

    Author : Martin Eriksson; Produktutveckling; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Predictive design analysis; Generic design analysis process model; Confidence appraisal activities; Computer-based design analysis; Engineering design; Integration;

    Abstract : The rapid development of computer-based design analysis tools and methods such as the finite element method (FEM) within computational structural mechanics (CSM), computational fluid dynamics (CFD), and multi-body systems (MBS) during recent decades has fundamentally changed the way in which products are designed and developed. Among the many advantages observed in industrial practice, one can mention improved understanding of product properties and behavior, the possibility to optimize critical design parameters and to optimize parts as well as the entire product at a system level, the possibility to explore a design space during the synthesis activity, and a decrease of the need for physical testing and thus of the number of physical prototypes needed.
