  1. 1. Studies in Glacier Mass Balance Measurement and its errors

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Physical Geography, Stockholm University

    Author : Andrew Mercer; Peter Jansson; Gunhild Rosqvist; Ian Brown; Jonathan Carrivick; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Glaciology; Mass Balance; Measurement Errors; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : The study of the surface mass balance of valley glaciers has a long history but one that is dogged by uncertainty and errors, and uncertainty about those errors. These problems are acknowledged by the glaciological community and have been examined and formalised in several publications. READ MORE

  2. 2. On System Dynamics as an Approach for Manufacturing Systems Development

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Gary Linnéusson; Högskolan i Skövde.; Högskolan i Skövde.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Teknik; Technology; system dynamics; manufacturing systems development; operational; Keywords: system dynamics;

    Abstract : Improvement work in manufacturing industry usually focuses on the utilisation of equipment. System dynamics simulation is a potential tool for increasing the utilisation of systems. By using group model building and simulation it facilitates a common view and better informed decisions for change. READ MORE

  3. 3. Developing Methods for Modelling Procedures in System Analysis and System Dynamics

    University dissertation from Department of Chemical Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Hördur Haraldsson; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; System Dynamics; System Analysis; group model building; modelling procedures; innovation phases; modelling workflow; Natural science; Naturvetenskap; Technological sciences; Teknik;

    Abstract : System Thinking is the mindset of defining and confining a problem and its symptoms as well as a method for communicating system understanding. System Analysis is taking that problem apart to understand its causalities and structural arrangement. READ MORE

  4. 4. Bringing System Dynamics into Action Research

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Paul Holmström; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; process consultation; Operations Research; simulation; action research; modelling; System Dynamics; healthcare;

    Abstract : System Dynamics simulation is a computer-aided approach to policy analysis and design, often carried out by external experts in simulation. System Dynamics is particularly useful in complicated and complex situations, such as healthcare. However, research has shown that few models in healthcare are implemented. READ MORE

  5. 5. Analysis of manufacturing supply chains using system dynamics and multi-objective optimization

    University dissertation from Skövde : University of Skövde

    Author : Tehseen Aslam; Högskolan i Skövde.; Högskolan i Skövde.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Supply Chain Management; System Dynamics; Multi-Objective Optimization; Technology; Teknik;

    Abstract : Supply chains are in general complex networks composed of autonomous entities whereby multiple performance measures in different levels, which in most cases are in conflict with each other, have to be taken into account. Hence, due to the multiple performance measures, supply chain decision making is much more complex than treating it as a single objective optimization problem. READ MORE
