Mobility is undergoing changes. Increasingly strict legislation regarding pollutant emissions and the protection of the environment are more important than ever. The change to electric mobility is also presenting the mobile world with new challenges and opportunities. Vehicles are becoming more and more efficient with higher power densities and better performance. Applicationadapted components are being developed and used as a matter of preference. New production technologies can help to realise the change in mobility reliably. Additive manufacturing is one way of producing functionally integrated and performance-optimised components. AM offers the possibility to produce application-specific performance parts. Electric vehicles often have a problem with the thermal load of the components during power output and charging. Additively manufactured components with optimised topology and integrated cooling strive to achieve higher power density, enhanced cooling performance, and improved mechanical properties. AM not only makes it possible to produce functionally integrated and application-adapted components but also to reduce CO2 emissions and conserve resources. The potential of additive manufacturing for mobility is particularly interesting for the spare and performance parts sector. Components can be improved in performance and manufactured directly on-site. The higher power density and the elimination of transport routes can make an additional significant contribution to environmental protection. This paper presents an overview of the current state of additive manufacturing in the field of electromobility with regard to replacement and performance parts using 3D metal printing. Based on an extensive literature research, a market overview is given. This serves as the basis for the further procedure and, building on this, the advantages of additive manufacturing are demonstrated using the example of an electric motor. The selected electric motor is an example of a defective component in a vehicle that needs to be replaced and whose performance can be improved by additive manufacturing and which can be produced on-site in a quantity of one. The motor is verified by means of a FEM simulation in order to determine the selection of an optimal water jacket topology and to demonstrate further potential for the future.

RÉSUMÉ L’article s’interroge sur les enjeux de la gestion verte de la chaîne logistique pour les entreprises familiales. L’analyse d’un échantillon d’entreprises françaises cotées de l’indice SBF 120 entre 2002 et 2018 montre que, globalement, le caractère familial des entreprises n’incite pas particulièrement à une gestion verte de la chaîne logistique. Toutefois, les entreprises familiales opérant dans des secteurs « polluants » semblent manifester un intérêt majeur pour une telle gestion, une façon de soigner leur image, constitutive de leur identité et de leur réputation.

Increasing customer satisfaction by producing quality products at a low cost is an important issue for businesses. For this reason, companies have to choose suppliers that will best meet their and their customers’ requests. Besides, many factors such as increasing the importance given to the environment, increasing the recycling rate of the products and ensuring sustainability are in an important position in the selection of suppliers. This has created the concept of green supplier selection. Businesses now prefer suppliers that carry out production considering green factors. In this study, green supplier selection was performed for a company producing steel doors. Alternative suppliers of the steel sheet raw material used in the company and the green criteria taken into account when choosing these suppliers were determined. Afterward, the company’s managers were interviewed and an evaluation and comparison of criteria and suppliers were carried out. The fuzzy analytic hierarchy process method was used to determine the weights of the determined criteria. The fuzzy multi-objective optimization by ratio analysis method was used in the evaluation and selection of suppliers. As a result of the study, the suppliers were listed as T1 > T2 > T4 > T5 > T6 > T3. It was decided that the best supplier for the company is the T1 supplier.

This study aims to describe the design of rural public wireless internet development based on a supply chain structure approach. Now, many new internet services have sprung up in the private, public, business, education, health, and even governmental sectors until considered as the leading global system. Especially in rural areas, the provision of cable internet networks and cellular internet networks have not been able to reach all rural areas, so a new breakthrough is needed, one of which is a public wireless internet network. This research was conducted with a Design-Based Research approach that combines scientific design methods with the problems that occur for internet development in rural areas of Indonesia. The finding that the development of wireless internet in rural areas can be carried out with the concept of a supply chain structure consisting of suppliers (ISP providers of internet sources), manufacturers (local government or village-owned enterprises managing and transmitting wireless internet to wholesaler), wholesaler (installed 5GHz wireless repeater in people residential areas), retailers (installed 5GHz wireless receiver devices from wholesaler and convert to 2.4GHz wireless transmitters installed in every resident’s house) and customers (each resident’s smartphones or notebooks device connected by wireless).
