  2. 2. IT Service Delivery in Nicaraguan Internet Service Providers : analysis and Assessment

    Author : Will Johnny Flores Delgadillo; Paul Johannesson; Lazar Rusu; Eva Söderström; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; IT; service delivery; Internet service provider; Information technology; Informationsteknik; SRA - ICT; SRA - Informations- och kommunikationsteknik;

    Abstract :   The thesis addresses the research question: How to describe, understand, and explain IT service delivery? Based on the research question, the following research questions were derived:  How to analyse IT service delivery based on ITIL in order to determine its current situation? How to formalize elements of IT service delivery in maturity level that can be used to assess its current status? These research questions are answered by two IT artefacts: an analysis method and a maturity model for IT service delivery. Both of them are constructed by design-science research guidelines.

  5. 5. Vibrations induced by surface roughness in nonlinear rolling contacts

    Author : Oskar Erik Lundberg; Ines Lopez Arteaga; Svante Finnveden; Will Graham; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Rolling contact; nonlinear contact; contact stiffness; contact filter; state-dependent method; relative displacement; wheel-rail contact; Farkostteknik; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering;

    Abstract : For efficient transportation in either trains, busses or passenger cars, rolling elements such as wheels, tyres, bearings and transmission elements are fundamental. The energy efficiency and the generation of noise and vibrations in rolling contacts depend on the surface roughness of contacting bodies. READ MORE
