  1. 1. Phase-Out Demand Forecasting : Predictive modeling on forecasting product life cycle

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Shadman Ahmed; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The phase-out stage in a product life cycle can face unpredictable demand. Accurate forecast of the phase-out demand can help supply chain managers to control the number of obsolete inventories. Consequently, having a positive effect in terms of resources and lower scrap costs. READ MORE

  2. 2. Value and sustainability design concept assessment using Discrete Event Simulation : A case in the road constructor sector

    University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Institutionen för maskinteknik

    Author : Natalie Kauppi; [2020]
    Keywords : Value-driven design; life cycle performances; sustainability profile; Net Present Value; Discrete event simulation; Värdedriven design; livscykelprestanda; hållbarhetsprofil; Net Present Value; Diskret händelsesimulering;

    Abstract : This master thesis has been performed in association with Blekinge Institute of Technology and in collaboration with the company Dynapac Compaction Equipment AB. The thesis aims to investigate how Discrete Event Simulation (DES) can be used for value and sustainability design concept assessments in early design stages. READ MORE

  3. 3. Multi-criteria assessment of biomethane production from waste and residual feedstocks of Emilia-Romagna (Italy)

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Energy and Technology

    Author : Giovanni Zanaroli; [2019]
    Keywords : biomethane; nutrients recycling; anaerobic digestion; multi-criteria assessment; transport;

    Abstract : Biomethane can be produced by anaerobic digestion of residues or wastes and it can be used as a renewable fuel for transport. It is associated with reduced GHG emissions, offsetting of fossil fuels and of mineral fertilizers, waste management and nutrient recycling in agriculture. READ MORE

  4. 4. Roadmap towards a Lean and Sustainable Production for Medium Sized Manufacturers: A Case Study

    University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Institutionen för maskinteknik; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Institutionen för maskinteknik

    Author : Yasmeen Jaghbeer; Yvonne Motyka; [2016]
    Keywords : Value Stream Mapping; Sustainability Life Cycle Analysis; lean and sustainable production; medium sized manufacturers.; Value Stream Mapping; Sustainability Life Cycle Analysis; lean och hållbar produktion; medelstora tillverkningsföretag;

    Abstract : Trends such as globalization, increased customer demands and the increased sustainability challenge are forcing medium sized manufacturers to rethink their production processes and start developing lean and sustainable production systems.Many of the developed tools and methods for the lean and sustainable production presented in the literature are not well suited for medium sized manufacturers with a lack of empirical case studies, and therefore investigating suitable approaches for improving the production and sustainability performances is needed in their case.

  5. 5. Material flows in the waterjet industry : an environmental perspective

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Industriell miljöteknikLinköpings universitet/Tekniska högskolan

    Author : Daniele Abbatelli; [2014]
    Keywords : waterjet; abrasive; LCA; Life Cycle Assessment; olivine; garnet;

    Abstract : Abrasive Waterjet cutting (AWJ) presents many advantages over competing machining techniques, but several issues are related to the high volume of materials (and in particular of abrasive) used in the process.In this study, the environmental impact of the material flows in the abrasive waterjet industry has been analyzed adopting a life cycle perspective in order to individuate which phases place the largest burden on the environment.
