    Abstract : The continuous progression of urbanization has resulted in an increasing number of people living in cities or towns. In parallel, advancements in technologies, such as the Internet, telecommunications, and transportation, have allowed for better connectivity among people. READ MORE

  2. 2. Assessment of Application of Participatory Methods for Complex Adaptive Systems  in the Public Sector

    Author : Maksims Kornevs; Sebastiaan Meijer; Jannicke Baalsrud Hauge; Paul Grogan; KTH; []
    Keywords : : participatory methods; complex adaptive system; public sector; change process; assessment; participativa metoder; komplext adaptivt system; offentlig sektor; förändringsprocess; bedömning;

    Abstract : The provision of services by the public sector is the result of a complex adaptive system at work, and involves a large number of stakeholders from different institutions and organisations. In the era of rapid change in requirements and expectations from the public sector, the management of change processes asks for the involvement of many stakeholders from different layers and positions.

  3. 3. Visual replenishment methods in manufacturing industry and suggestion for a decision tool

    Author : Stefan Eriksson; Mauro Onori; Stig- Arne Mattsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; materials supply; replenishment methods; visual; selecting methods; decision tool;

    Abstract : In almost all supply chains, materials need to be stored or buffered, implying that manufacturing companies need effective replenishment methods. However, this is challenging, since companies must balance inventory costs and customer service in complex and different situations. Therefore, it is important to choose replenishment methods carefully. READ MORE

  5. 5. Thermal crack estimation in early age concrete : models and methods for practical application

    Author : Mårten Larson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : Control of thermal cracking in young concrete is of great importance to ensure a desired service life time and function of a structure. Making reliable thermal stress estimations, and thereby conclusions about cracking risks, involves advanced modelling of material properties and structural restraint. READ MORE
