  1. 1. Challenges in Global Multi-Variant Serial Production - A Study of Manufacturing Engineering Processes

    Author : Pierre Johansson; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; product and production complexity; product variety; product and process standardization; Global production networks;

    Abstract : Global manufacturing companies have hard times to manage their global production networks as dispersion in their networks increases. Such dispersion is caused by the increasing level of product variety and more parameters to control as the networks grow. Handling product variety becomes more difficult as products become more complex and integrated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Production Ergonomics: Identifying and managing risk in the design of high performance work systems

    University dissertation from Department of Design Sciences, Faculty of Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Patrick Neumann; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; reumatologi; Organizational science; Organisationsteori; Production technology; Produktionsteknik; muskelsystem; Skelett; rheumatology locomotion; muscle system; Skeleton; Risk Assessment; Manufacturing; Musculoskeletal disorders; Human Factors; Organisational Development; Production System Design; Strategy;

    Abstract : Poor ergonomics in production systems can compromise performance and cause musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which pose a huge cost to society, companies, and afflicted individuals. This thesis presents a research trajectory through the problem space by: 1) Identifying and quantifying workplace risk factors for MSDs, 2) Identifying how these risks may relate to production strategies, and 3) Developing an approach to integrating ergonomics into a companies’ regular development work.

  3. 3. A globolo gems. Late Etrusco-Italic scarab intaglios

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborg University

    Author : Ulf Hansson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Etruscan; Etrusco-Italic; a globolo; scarab; engraved gem; glyptic; engraving technique; archaeogemmology; archaeology; find context; typology; iconography; standardisation; serial production; consumption; auto-representation;

    Abstract : The study treats a class of engraved scarab gems commonly known by the name of a globolo, produced in Central Italy in the Late Classical to Early Hellenistic periods. The point of departure is a newly developed database of all known specimens, which amount to 1,470, covering a wide range of information categories, which have guided the structure of the presentation.

  4. 4. Industrial development of car disassembly - ergonomics and system performance

    University dissertation from Department of Design Sciences, Faculty of Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Karolina Kazmierczak; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; physical workloads; production systems; muskelsystem; reumatologi; rheumatology locomotion; Skelett; muscle system; Skeleton; flow and human simulations; video-task analysis; rationalizations; car disassembly; musculoskeletal disorders; Technological sciences; Teknik;

    Abstract : A new EU directive on used vehicles has recently been introduced. It demands that for every scrapped car, at least 85% by weight must be recycled by the year 2006 and 95% by 2015. The current level is about 80%. The car disassembly industry was chosen as the study object of this thesis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Continuous Ethanol Production from Dilute-acid Hydrolyzates: Detoxification and Fermentation Strategy

    University dissertation from Department of Design Sciences, Faculty of Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Ronny Purwadi; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HMF; serial bioreactor; immobilization; overliming; furfural; ethanol; continuous cultivation; S. cerevisiae; flocculating yeast; continuous detoxification; dilute-acid hydrolyzate;

    Abstract : The production of fuel ethanol from cellulosic biomass is of growing interest around the world. Lignocellulosic residuals can be used to produce transportation fuel, with the overall process having little net production of greenhouse gases. READ MORE
