  1. 1. Product Platform Development. Managerial Issues in Manufacturing Firms

    Författare :Niklas Sundgren; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; product platform development; platform characteristics; platform project; platform concept; managerial issues;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with product platform development - the development of a set of subsystems and interfaces that form a common structure from which a stream of derivative products can be efficiently developed and produced. A platform approach to product development can reduce lead time and product cost throughout a firm's internal value chain by reaping benefits from economies of scale. LÄS MER

  2. 2. An inquiry into the nature and causes of digital platforms

    Författare :Ted Saarikko; Katrin Jonsson; Jonny Holmström; Panos Constantinides; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Digital platform; platform strategy; platform development; stability; affordance theory; qualitative study; computer and systems sciences; data- och systemvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : While the shape and nature of platforms varies across different instances, they pursue common ambitions such as reduction of risk, complexity, or transaction costs. Although initially theorised in industrial contexts, subsequent theorising regarding platform development, platform ecosystems, and platform strategy has drawn upon studies of high-tech industries in general and IT-based platforms in particular.

  3. 3. Configuration of Platform Architectures in Construction

    Författare :Patrik Jensen; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mass customization; Modularization; Platform architecture; Configuration; Civil engineering and architecture - Building manufacturing engineering; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur - Byggproduktionsteknik; Construction Engineering and Management; Byggproduktion;

    Sammanfattning : Construction is often defined as a project-oriented industry that develops complex one-of-a-kind products using an engineer-to-order (ETO) design process. The technical solutions that are developed in specific projects often have integral product architectures that are difficult to re-use in continuous improvement processes. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The Port Logistics Platform

    Författare :Badi Almotairi; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Sammanfattning : With the acceleration of global competition, the port industry was confronted withchallenges and opportunities at the same point in time. Challenges were seen in thecontext of the ongoing logistics-restructured environment, and how the port wouldbecome fledged with this vastly evolving market. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Platform-Based Design - Design Rationale Aspects within the Configurable Component Concept

    Författare :Stellan Gedell; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; design rationale; derivate designs; configurable components; set-based design; product model; re-use; platform-based design; function-means tree;

    Sammanfattning : Competition, emanating from globalization and the continuing evolution in supplier chains, especially within the automotive industry, creates pressure on every phase of a design´s lifecycle to be more efficient. Requirements, which at least are perceived as conflicting, on one hand a low product price achieved by high volumes and economy of scale, and on the other hand the customers´ whish of individualized products, push for new approaches.
