  1. 1. Supply chain resilience through quality management

    Author : Roy Andersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; supply chain strategy; risk; robust; Six Sigma; quality; logistics; management; TQM; Lean; resilient; flexible; collaboration.; Agile; lean; agile; six sigma; Kvalitetsdriven logistik;

    Abstract : The length and complexity of the supply chain tend to increase, rather than diminish, thereby making the supply chain riskier and less predictable and, hence, more vulnerable. At the same time, customers are becoming increasingly demanding. READ MORE

  2. 2. Quality-driven logistics

    Author : Roy Andersson; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TQM; risk management; supply chain; demand chain; agile; six sigma; lean; quality management;

    Abstract : The overall objective of this thesis is to describe and explain how different quality management philosophies can be combined in the supply/demand chain, in order to contribute to its resilience. The analysis is both quantitative and qualitative, based on theory and literature related to TQM, Lean, Agile and Six Sigma, one literature study and three case studies that were performed in companies.

  3. 3. Improved Quality Assurance of Fatigue Loaded Structures - The Necessary Shift from Technology Focus towards Information Driven Weld Evaluation

    Author : Anna Öberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; lean; fatigue; NDT; information; inspection; control; assurance; six sigma; quality; weld;

    Abstract : The research has shown that the insufficient use of process information leads to unnecessary and costly safety margins in each step of production. This is, in short term, affecting the productivity of the company. Even more serious is the effect that insufficient use of process information has on product and process development in the long term. READ MORE
