  1. 1. Relationships between global operations networks and product architectures

    University dissertation from Faculty of Engineering, Department of Industrial Management and Logistics

    Author : Sebastian Pashaei; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017-05-05]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Supply chain; Integral; Modular; Multiple-case study; survey;

    Abstract : Globalization has resulted in more segments and product configurations to meet the needs of various customers in different markets. For manufacturers to keep up, the operations footprint has become more global to source from the most appropriate suppliers but also have manufacturing sites in close proximity to the main local markets.

  2. 2. Green Logistics through Modal Shift - exploring the role of the transport capacity contract

    University dissertation from Faculty of Engineering, Department of Industrial Management and Logistics

    Author : Fredrik Eng Larsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; green logistics; modal shift; mode choice; capacity management; supply chain contracting; intermodal transport;

    Abstract : Among policy-makers in Europe the modal shift - a shift från polluting modes of freight transport to less polluting modes - has been a popular suggestion for reducing CO2-emissions of transportation. In particular, intermodal road-rail solutions, where a combination of road and rail transport is utilized to move trailers and containers, have been stressed as an important measure to reach de desired reduction in emissions.

  3. 3. On Supply Chain Incentive Alignment: Insights from a cash supply chain and a trucking service supply chain

    University dissertation from Lund University (Media-Tryck)

    Author : Johan Lundin; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Supply chain management; Incentive alignment; Cash supply chain; Trucking service supply chain; Mixed methods research;

    Abstract : This dissertation presents a framework for describing, a process for identifying, and a model for evaluating misalignments in the supply chain when varying elements such as structure, processes, and management components. The developed approach makes it possible to address and improve the alignment of supply chain structures, processes, and management components. READ MORE

  4. 4. Decentralized Control of Networked Systems Information Asymmetries and Limitations

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Farhad Farokhi; KTH.; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Networked Control Systems; Decentralized Control; Limited Model Information; Transportation Systems; Sensor Scheduling;

    Abstract : Designing local controllers for networked systems is challenging, because in these systems each local controller can often access only part of the overall information on system parameters and sensor measurements. Traditional control design cannot be easily applied due to the unconventional information patterns, communication network imperfections, and design procedure complexities. READ MORE

  5. 5. Security in Physical Distribution - Causes, mitigation measures and an investment model

    University dissertation from Teknisk logistik, LTH

    Author : Luca Urciuoli; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; security investments.; security measures in supply chains; causes of security vulnerability; antagonistic risks; security; physical distribution;

    Abstract : Recent statistics and terror events testify an increased vulnerability of distribution networks. Antagonistic threats as theft, counterfeiting, contamination and terror are burdening supply chains with unexpected costs in form of lost cargo, production downtimes, lower customer satisfaction, and higher transportation costs.
