  1. 1. Manufacturing capabilities : expendable commodities or catalysts for effective supply chain management

    Author : Robin von Haartman; Lars Bengtsson; Matti Kaulio; Björge Timenes Laugen; KTH; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Many large companies have for a long time been very successful in their industries by combining leading edge R&D and marketing with strong internal manufacturing capabilities. An alternative model is now getting increased attention, where R&D and marketing is conducted internally and manufacturing performed by outsourcing partners. READ MORE

  2. 2. Low Frequency Impact Sound in Timber Buildings : Transmission Measurements and Simulations

    Author : Jörgen Olsson; Andreas Linderholt; Börje Nilsson; Carl Hopkins; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Timber floors; FE-simulations; Light weight floors; Frequency response functions; Building acoustics; Byggteknik; Civil engineering;

    Abstract : An increased share of multi-story buildings that have timber structures entails potential in terms of increased sustainability as well as human-friendly manufacturing and habitation. Timber buildings taller than two stories were prohibited in Europe until the 1990s due to fire regulations. In 1994, this prohibition was removed in Sweden. READ MORE

  3. 3. Impact of international competition on Swedish manufacturing : individual and firm-level evidence from the 1990s
