  1. 1. Cost efficency of nonresponse rate reduction efforts : an evaluation approach

    Författare :Sara Westling; Bengt Swensson; Risto Lehtonen; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nonresponse bias; follow-ups; response distribution; resource allocation; cost efficiency; evaluation; nonresponse error; Monte Carlo simulations; Statistics; Statistik; Statistics; Statistik;

    Sammanfattning : Nonresponse, the failure to obtain complete measurement on all sample elements, is an increasing problem in sample surveys. Efforts to reduce the nonresponse rate are expensive and their effect may not be as desired. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Integrated evaluation of resource efficiency and cost effectiveness in production systems

    Författare :Michael Lieder; Bengt Lindberg; Peter Almström; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; resource; efficiency; effectiveness; production system; evaluation; small and medium-sized enterprises;

    Sammanfattning : Improved use of resources is of enormously high relevance and crucial for achieving as well as maintaining a sustainable condition. Especially industrial production has a superior responsibility in creating a long-term viable way of living. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Efficiency Improvements in Waste-to-Energy Combustion Processes : Method Development and Evaluation

    Författare :Eboh Francis Chinweuba; Simon Harvey; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Solid waste; exergy; entropy; higher heating value; improvement potential; waste-to-energy plant; efficiency improvement; cost evaluation; simulation; modelling; Resource Recovery; Resursåtervinning;

    Sammanfattning : is the energy recovery method. The electrical efficiency of this technology, however, is generally low when compared with other solid fuel-fired combustion plants as a result of low steam properties. Furthermore, there is lack of efficient methods to evaluate the performance of this system. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Industrial energy efficiency improvement – the role of policy and evaluation

    Författare :Christian Stenqvist; Miljö- och energisystem; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Cement.; Pulp and paper; Decarbonisation; EU ETS; Energy management; Voluntary Agreement; Evaluation; Policy; Industrial energy efficiency;

    Sammanfattning : At EU and to a varying degree at Member State (MS) level, industrial energy efficiency improvement (EEI) is considered an attractive means for reaching political objectives of different dimensions, not least environmental. For energy-intensive manufacturing industry in particular, EEI can lead to cost reductions, improved profitability and competitiveness. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Towards an Approach for Efficiency Evaluation of Enterprise Modeling Methods

    Författare :Banafsheh Khademhosseinieh; Kurt Sandkuhl; Ulf Seigerroth; Sture Hägglund; Martin Henkel; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Enterprise Modeling; Efficiency Evaluation; Quality;

    Sammanfattning : Nowadays, there is a belief that organizations should keep improving different aspects of theirenterprise to remain competitive in their business segment. For this purpose, it is required to understand the current state of the enterprise, analyze and evaluate it to be able to figure out suitable change measures. LÄS MER
