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
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.

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
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
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.
