  1. 1. Reducing and absorbing variations in a manufacturing context A capacity management perspective

    University dissertation from Jönköping : Jönköping University, School of Engineering

    Author : Lisa Hedvall; Högskolan i Jönköping.; [2019]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; capacity management; variation management; buffer management; manufacturing companies; manufacturing planning and control; kapacitetsadministration; variationsadministration; buffertadministration; tillverkande företag; material- och produktionsstyrning;

    Abstract : Variations can have substantially negative effects on performance and it is therefore important to investigate how the variations can be reduced or absorbed in an appropriate way for competitiveness. Manufacturing companies are daily exposed to variations and operations managers need to take capacity management decisions with this in mind to secure the delivery capability. READ MORE

  3. 3. Shaping Risk Management in Banks

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Vikash Kumar Sinha; KTH.; [2019]

    Abstract : The recent financial crisis of 2007-08 was a watershed moment in the history of banking. The unprecedented event led to severe scrutiny by standard setters and regulators on how the business of banking is run. As a result of this strict scrutiny, a wide variety of reforms aimed at the second line of defense (risk management) ensued globally. READ MORE

  4. 4. Supply chain resilience through quality management

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers tekniska högskola; Borås : Högskolan i Borås

    Author : Roy Andersson; Högskolan i Borås.; [2009]

    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

  5. 5. Local variation in bending stiffness in structural timber of Norway spruce for the purpose of strength grading

    University dissertation from Linnaeus University, Department of Building Technology

    Author : Min Hu; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2014]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; digital image correlation; fibre angle; high resolution; laser scanning; local stiffness; MOE profile; mode shape curvature; strain field; strength grading; structural timber; tracheid effect; Digital image correlation; fibervinkel; laserskanning; lokal styvhet; MOE-profil; töjningsfält; hållfasthetssortering; konstruktionsvirke; trakeideffekt; Forestry and Wood Technology; Skog och träteknik;

    Abstract : Most strength grading machines on the European market use an averagemodulus of elasticity (MOE), estimated on a relatively large distance along awood member, as the indicating property (IP) to bending strength. Theaccuracy of such grading machines in terms of coefficient of determination israther low at R2 ≈ 0.5. READ MORE
