  1. 1. Relevance Lost: Are Johnson & Kaplan’s claims valid outside the U.S.? - A systematic literature review of over three decades

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Företagsekonomiska institutionen

    Author : Jessica-Kim Schmid; Tanvi Chauhan; [2020]
    Keywords : Relevance Lost; Accounting; Debate; Validity; Review; Business and Economics;

    Abstract : This paper aims to give evidence on the external validity of Johnson and Kaplan’s claims of management accounting having become subservient to financial accounting. A mixed pattern of confirmation of validity has been identified. Nearly half of the countries agreed with Johnson and Kaplan (1987), while the other half did not. READ MORE

  2. 2. Negative Attitude Towards AI and Its Relationship with the Cultural Dimension of Power Distance

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för informatik och media

    Author : Sumanth Pinnaka; [2020]
    Keywords : power distance; Negative attitude towards AI; Hofstede’s cultural dimensions;

    Abstract : Earlier studies have focused on the relationship between negative attitudes towards AI and collective culture of the country (country of origin). These differences may be because of sizeable differences in the power distance index (PDI) on the population level between different countries. READ MORE

  3. 3. Hydrogen - The future fuel for construction equipment? : A well to tank analysis of hydrogen powered machine applications at Volvo CE

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för ekonomi, samhälle och teknik; Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för ekonomi, samhälle och teknik

    Author : Andreas Sjödin; Elias Ekberg; [2020]
    Keywords : Hydrogen; Well to tank; Hydrogen storage; MILP;

    Abstract : As the world is moving towards a more sustainable energy perspective, construction equipment sees the requirement to change its current way of operation with fossil fuels to reduce its environmental impact. In order to pursue the electrification of construction equipment a dense power source is essential, where hydrogen powered fuel cells have the potential to be a sufficient energy source. READ MORE

  4. 4. Process and microstructure development of a LPBF produced maraging steel

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Avdelningen för maskin- och materialteknik

    Author : Kenny Johansson; [2020]
    Keywords : Maraging steels; additive manufacturing; Laser Powder Bed Fusion; LPBF; additiv tillverkning; maråldringsstål; pulverbädd;

    Abstract : Additive manufacturing (AM) has the possibility of producing complex-shaped components which can not be produced by conventional manufacturing methods. This gives the opportunity for designers to freely think outside the design spectra which is otherwise limited by conventional manufacturing methods. READ MORE

  5. 5. An evaluation of deterministic prediction of ocean waves using pressure data to assist a Wave Energy Converter

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM); KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Niclas Bassili; Douglas Eriksson; [2020]
    Keywords : Deterministic wave prediction; Pressure sensor; Weakly dispersive reconstruction method; Time to spatial data assimilation; High-order spectral method; Determinisk vågförutsägelse; Trycksensor; Weakly dispersive reconstruction method; Time to spatial data assimilation; High-order spectral method;

    Abstract : Currently, existing devices for extracting electrical power from ocean waves all suffer from problems with low efficiency due to a lack of information about the incoming waves in advance. The complex dynamic nonlinear characteristics of the ocean make the prediction of these incoming waves a great challenge. READ MORE
