  1. 1. Essays on Mergers and Acquisitions and Event Studies

    Author : Mohammad Irani; Lars Nordén; Rickard Sandberg; Neslihan Ozkan; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; mergers and acquisitions; event study; prediction; payment method; conditional CAPM; time-varying parameters; structural change methodology; variance; covariance; Business Administration; företagsekonomi;

    Abstract : This dissertation consists of three studies on the anticipation of mergers and acquisitions (M&As) and its impact on takeover event studies. Article I investigates whether the market can anticipate both takeovers and their payment forms prior to their announcement dates. READ MORE

  2. 2. On Virtual Development of Manufacturing Systems -Proposal for a Modular Discrete Event Simulation Methodology

    Author : Björn Johansson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Manufacturing Systems; Productivity Development; Discrete Event Simulation; Knowledge;

    Abstract : Today??s production is characterized by frequent changes and uncertainty due to short product life cycles. Outsourcing to low-cost countries is a common way to solve flexibility and cost problems. Swedish manufacturing companies need to use knowledge as an advantage in order to compete successfully.

  3. 3. Understanding quality improvement in care: The case of public care procurement and process mining

    Author : Sara Dahlin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; methodology; process mining; cancer care; public care procurement; elderly care; Quality improvement; care pathways; context;

    Abstract : Healthcare is facing challenges of increased cost and complexity originating from factors such as new technology and diversified treatments, increased life expectancy, an ageing population, and multi-comorbidity, making the need for Quality Improvement (QI) in care highly relevant. This is, however, easier said than done, considering that healthcare is complex, dynamic, ad-hoc, and multidisciplinary. READ MORE

  4. 4. On Discrete-Event Simulation and Integration in the Manufacturing System Development Process

    Author : Lars Randell; Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Automatiska system; control engineering; configuration management; discrete-event simulation; Production technology; Produktionsteknik; robotics; Automation; robotteknik; reglerteknik;

    Abstract : DES is seldom used in the manufacturing system development process, instead it is usually used to cure problems in existent systems. This has the effect that the simulation study alone is considered being the cost driver for the analysis of the manufacturing system. READ MORE

  5. 5. Earthquake Sources, the Stress Field and Seismic Hazard : A Study in Eritrea and its Surrounding

    Author : Lijam Zemichael Hagos; Roland Roberts; Hossein Shomali; Kuvvet Atakan; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Earth sciences; Seismic hazard; Focal mechanism; Moment tensor inversion; Stress field; Afar depression; Eritrea; Geovetenskap; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap;

    Abstract : Presented in this thesis are some basic concepts and applications of seismic hazard analysis and the elements that influence the amplitude and geometric attenuation of earthquake ground motion. This thesis centers on the identification of the styles of failure, focal mechanisms, and the state of regional stress in the study area. READ MORE
