  1. 1. Operational Military Violence : A Cartography of Bureaucratic Minds and Practices

    Author : Anders Malm; Marie Demker; Dan Öberg; Annika Bergman-Rosamond; Försvarshögskolan; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; military violence; bureaucratisation; operational level; targeting; military masculinity; Krigsvetenskap; Krigsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Western use of military violence is becoming increasingly centralised, partly through the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (or more commonly referred to as “drones” in the literature). Drone technology allows control and command of military operations to be put under one roof, and as military organisations traditionally have a close dependence on technological developments, procedures and regulations for centralised command and control have developed in close concert with advances in drone technology.

  2. 2. Innovation under pressure : Reclaiming the micro-level exploration space

    Author : Katarina Lund Stetler; Mats Magnusson; Jens Hemphälä; Salomo Sören; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Ambidexterity; exploration; exploitation; creativity; innovation; micro-level exploration space; operational level; operations; operational effectiveness; employee; lean; lean thinking; process management; streamlining; flow; Machine Design; Maskinkonstruktion;

    Abstract : Research & Development (R&D) departments are becoming increasingly structured and routine-based, with tight schedules and daily follow-ups. This way of working stems from increased demands for delivering products to customers quickly and with high quality at a low price. READ MORE

  4. 4. Retail trade demands on distributors : strategic and operational implications

    Author : Markus Henningsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The global trend of consolidation holds true also within the British Do-It-Yourself (DIY) retail trade and Builders Merchants (BM), resulting in inter alia the rise of 'mega-retailers' such as B&Q. The manufacturers and suppliers of wood products have been slow in the adaptation to the changed market situation. READ MORE

    Author : Stefan Braun; Göran Stemme; Martin A. Schmidt; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Microelectromechanical systems; MEMS; silicon; wafer-level; integration; heterogeneous integration; transfer integration; packaging; assembly; wafer bonding; adhesive bonding; eutectic bonding; release etching; electrochemical etching; microvalves; microactuator; Shape Memory Alloy; SMA; NITINOL; TiNi; NiTi; cold-state reset; bias spring; stress layers; crossbar switch; routing; switch; switch array; electrostatic actuator; S-shaped actuator; zipper actuator; addressing; transfer stamping; blue tape; Computer engineering; Datorteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis presents methods for the wafer-level integration of shape memory alloy (SMA) and electrostatic actuators to functionalize MEMS devices. The integration methods are based on heterogeneous integration, which is the integration of different materials and technologies. READ MORE
