  1. 1. On Determination of Inventory Cost Parameters

    Author : Peter Berling; Produktionsekonomi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Produktionsteknik; Production technology; Transportteknik; Transport technology; Ordering cost; Shortage cost; Capital cost; Holding cost; Inventory control; Real options;

    Abstract : Efficient inventory control depends on correct values of inventory cost parameters, such as holding costs, shortage/stockout costs and ordering/setup costs. However, there exists surprisingly little research concerning the size of these parameters or how they should be determined. This thesis is devoted to increasing our knowledge of these matters.

  4. 4. Cost Optimization of Aircraft Structures

    Author : Markus Kaufmann; Dan Zenkert; Malin Åkermo; Per Wennhage; Erik Lund; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; aircraft structures; optimization; cost estimation; manufacturing cost; direct operating cost; multiobjective optimization; multidisciplinary optimization; composites; airframe design; Vehicle engineering; Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : Composite structures can lower the weight of an airliner significantly. Due to the higher process complexity and the high material cost, however, the low weight often comes with a significant increase in production cost. The application of cost-effective design strategies is one mean to meet this challenge. READ MORE

  5. 5. Costs in Swedish Public Transport : An analysis of cost drivers and cost efficiency in public transport contracts
