  1. 1. Towards improved simulation process capabilities : A simulation process maturity model

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för innovation, design och teknik

    Author : Arild Bramler; [2019]
    Keywords : Simulation process; Process maturity; maturity model;

    Abstract : Purpose – The purpose of this thesis is to present the result of simulation process maturity (SPM) assessments in the pharmaceutical and manufacturing industry using a process maturity model derived from empirical research. The model is used to benchmark an organisations simulation capability and to apply the results of the assessment to develop a road map for implementing simulation process improvement as well as integration initiatives within the organisation.

  2. 2. CAN ACTIVPAL REPLACE ACTIGRAPH WHEN MEASURING PHYSICAL ACTIVITY ON ADULTS IN A FREE LIVING ENVRIONMENT?

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Fysioterapi

    Author : Johan Sunesson; [2018]
    Keywords : Accelerometer; Concurrent validity; Walking; Cadence; MVPA; ADL;

    Abstract : Introduction With an increasing knowledge of the health benefits from physical activity (PA) the interest in objectively measuring PA in free living environment has increased. ActiGraph is the most commonly used accelerometer to objectively measure PA, while ActivPAL is considered gold standard when it comes to measuring sedentary behavior. READ MORE

  3. 3. Using gallium nitride nanowires as STM probes

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Synkrotronljusfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Karolis Sulinskas; [2018]
    Keywords : STM; STS; Nanowire; GaN; InAs; Semiconductors; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Gallium nitride (GaN) nanowires grown using catalyst-free metal organic vapor phase epitaxy were used as scanning tunneling microscope (STM) probes. The probes were prepared by placing a GaN nanowire on a tungsten STM probe using a nanomanipulator in a scanning electron microscope (SEM) and welding them together using an electron beam induced platinum deposition.

  4. 4. Graphical user interface for evaluation of knee proprioception and how it is affected by an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury- a functional brain imaging study : Ett grafiskt användargränssnitt för utvärdering av knäproprioception och hur det påverkas av en korsbandsskada - en funktionell magnetresonanstomografisk studie

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysikUmeå universitet/Institutionen för strålningsvetenskaper

    Author : Wallgren Johan; [2018]
    Keywords : Proprioception; fmri; acl; anterior cruciate ligament injury; brain imaging; mri; knee injury; BOLD; SPM;

    Abstract : There is a big risk that neuroreceptors located in the knee, responsible for our proprioceptive ability, are damaged after an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury occurs. This may cause miscommunication between the neuroreceptors and motoric function in the brain. READ MORE

  5. 5. MICROFINANCE IMPACT EVALUATION: THEORY VERSUS PRAXIS

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Ekonomisk-historiska institutionen

    Author : Filippo Capurro; [2017]
    Keywords : Business and Economics;

    Abstract : By conducting a comparative analysis of microfinance impact evaluation (IE) from the researchers and practitioners perspective, the paper aims to uncover the existing gap between theory and reality. To that purpose an academic literature review on IE, based on Randomized Controlled Trials (RCTs), is contrasted with the practitioners’ social performance management approach (SPM). READ MORE
