  1. 1. Knowledge maturity as decision support in stage-gate product development : a case from the aerospace industry

    Author : Christian Johansson; Andreas Larsson; Marco Bertoni; Dave Randall; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Knowledge Maturity; Knowledge Management; Stage-Gate; Decision Support; Product Development; Product-Service Systems; Aerospace; Funktionella produkter; Functional Product Development;

    Abstract : In today’s fast-paced industry where fight for market share is fierce and reaching the market ahead of competition imperative, product development is a target for lead-time reductions. In this context, in product development in stage-gate processes, decisions need to be made even though knowledge and information are scarce and flawed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Knowledge engineering in the virtual enterprise : exploring a maturity-based decision support

    Author : Christian Johansson; Tobias Larsson; Andreas Larsson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

  5. 5. Gaining influence in standard-setting processes : a discussion of underlying mechanisms in 3G mobile telephony technology development

    Author : Christina Grundström; Helén Andersson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Dominant designs; standard-setting processes; 3G mobile telephony technology development; technology and standards hierarchy; industry maturity; roles and functions of people; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The environment in which companies operate is such that standards become increasingly important due to the built-in rigidities resulting from previous technology investments and network externalities. The research question is: How can a market-leading company gain influence on the formation of standards perceived as vital for the company-s continued business? The purpose of the dissertation is to explore, describe, and characterise how such influence may be gained; it thus aims to reveal some of the mechanisms underlying a technology standard-setting process.
