  1. 1. Computational and accuracy benchmarking of simulation and system-theoretic models for production systems engineering

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap

    Author : Antonio José Ramos Calderón; [2021]
    Keywords : DES; benchmarking; lean buffer; optimization; simulation software; performance measure; plant simulation; FACTS; PSE toolbox;

    Abstract : The modern industry has an increasing demand for simulation software able to help workers and decision-makers visualize the outputs of a specific process in a fast, accurate way. In this report, a comparative study between FACTS (Factory Analyses in ConcepTual phase using Simulation), Plant Simulation, and PSE (Production System Engineering) Toolbox is done regarding their capacity to simulate models with increasing complexity, how accurate they are in their outputs with different optimized buffer allocations, and how well they perform on the task of detecting the bottlenecks of a process.

  2. 2. A topic model-based approach for ontology extension in the computational materials science domain

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Tong Zhang; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : With the continuous development and progress of human society, the demand for advanced materials in all walks of life is increasing day by day. No matter in the agrarian age or the information age, human beings have always been tireless in the study of materials science, and the field of computational materials science has been the exploration of computational methods in materials science.

  3. 3. An Open Source Energy Modelling Framework Comparison of OSeMOSYS and oemof

    University essay from KTH/Energisystemanalys

    Author : Christoph Muschner; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Well-founded research is needed to gain sound insights into the relationship between energy and the environment in order to ensure a basis for responsible policy-making in the face of a climate crisis. Transparency in code and data is a prerequisite for reproducible research in energy modelling and its quality assurance and is embedded in the philosophy of open source energy modelling frameworks (OSEMFs).

  4. 4. Cultivating Critique in Folds and Pleats - Posthuman Enactments in the Dress of Rick Owens

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för etnologi

    Author : Wiktor Hansson; [2019]
    Keywords : Posthuman; Fashion; Anthropocene; Intra-Relationality; Rick Owens; Avant-Garde; Deleuze; Queer; MACA; Arts and Architecture; Cultural Sciences; Philosophy and Religion; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : Taking as its epistemological starting point the proposed geological era of the Anthropocene, this thesis enquires the affective potential of avant-garde fashion in criticising, improving or transforming the supposed givenness of The Human as a historical concept. In order to do so, it inflects and departs from the tightly held onto-epistemological cannon of fashion studies and anthropology of dress, in which fashion is understood primarily through representation, signification and performance of identity.

  5. 5. The Secret Ingredients to Moral Philosophy: Blood, Sweat, and Tears : On bad enough worst-case scenarios in experimental approximations of John Rawls' Original Position

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Author : Isa Lappalainen; [2019]
    Keywords : Distributive Justice; Maximin; John Rawls; Original Position; Veil of Ignorance; Justice; Experiment; Vietnam Lottery; Stoker; Erikson; Frohlich; Oppenheimer;

    Abstract : This paper approximates the study of a natural experiment to John Rawls’ thought experiment ‘the original position’ (OP). It argues that laboratory experiments have been unsuccessful in making legitimate approximations of the OP because of their inability to present convincing worst-case scenarios. READ MORE
