Article
Full-text available
Purpose The purpose of this paper is through a literature study and a study of the Saab offset cases to identify strategies to increase inter-organizational transfer capability. Design/methodology/approach This paper is based on a literature study and a study of three of Saab’s offset cases and Saab’s process for technology transfer. Findings...
Article
This paper researches productivity in relation to domain complexity and the present knowledge capacity in an organisational context. The study is based on five very different case studies. Three studies are conducted in Denmark, Germany, Mexico and China and are related to knowledge transfer in the relocation of manufacturing facilities. Two studie...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
SMEs are in general highly flexible and agile in order to accommodate the customer demands in the paradigm of High Mix-Low Volume manufacturing. The flexibility and agility have mainly been enabled by manual labor, but as we are entering the technology and data driven fourth industrial revolution, where augmented operators and machines work in coop...
Article
Purpose This paper aims to explore how maintenance tasks can be planned and executed in a smarter way and, consequently, how the operations and maintenance of offshore wind power installations can be improved through modularisation. Design/methodology/approach This is a case study of one of Europe’s leading offshore wind power operators with more...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
To become profitable, the cost of offshore windfarms must be reduced. Optimization of the Operations & Maintenance process offers a great potential for cost reductions, especially for existing windfarm. As Continuous Improvement may deliver these cost reductions, this paper aims at fostering CI in the offshore wind industry. In order to identify wh...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose – Despite good project front-end planning, projects typically need continuous coordination among the participants concerning scope of work, pace, and timing during the execution phase to be accomplished without delays. Coordination can be formal or informal. Research shows that informal coordination of residual and unforeseen interdependenc...
Article
Full-text available
Nowadays we live in a world, which a decade ago would only be described in the science fiction literature. More and more things become smart and both scientists and engineers strive for developing not only new and innovative devices, but also homes, factories, or even cities. Despite of continuous development, many of those concepts are still being...
Article
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore the specific practices of management in the dispatching unit and to identify mechanisms for supporting transfer of shop floor knowledge embedded in operating manufacturing equipment. Design/methodology/approach – The paper applies an inductive and a case study approach for exploring three empirical...
Chapter
This paper is built on six longitudinal case studies of knowledge transfer in manufacturing relocation. By focusing on tacit and explicit knowledge the paper introduces a model for identification of knowledge in relation to four task situations on the shop floor in a manufacturing environment. The paper discusses and suggests how the transfer of ta...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This exploratory study provides an overview over current state of manufacturing solutions in small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in region of Southern Denmark. Building on manufacturing paradigms, this paper reveals relevant aspects for the development and implementation of improving SMEs’ automation processes. The paper presents an embedded...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose With the aim to support offshore production line replication, the specific purpose of this paper is to explore the use of templates and principles to transfer expansive productive knowledge embedded in a production line and understand the contingencies that influence the mix of these approaches. Design/methodology/approach A total of two c...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose – The global spread of production makes companies relocate their manufacturing units frequently. Not only equipment, systems, and facilities, need to be moved, but the transfer of operational knowledge and experience seem to be a major challenge. However, discussions on knowledge transfer are derived predominantly from a cognitive perspecti...
Article
Full-text available
Empiriske studier i tre industrielle virksomheder har afsløret, at selv virksomhe-der med mange års erfaring i at overføre produktion til andre lande hovedsagelig fokuserer på planlaegning af den fysiske overfl ytning af produktionsudstyr og fokuserer på den eksplicitte viden, der er tilknyttet produktionsfaciliteterne. Virk-somhederne synes at vae...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Empirical studies in three industrial companies have revealed that even companies with many years of experience in production transfer tend to focus attention on planning the physical transfer and on the explicit knowledge associated with normal production. They are uncertain about capturing, trans ferring and developing tacit knowledge. Supported...
Article
Purpose In the context of transferring manufacturing knowledge to new locations, whether this is to parties inside or outside the legal boundary of a firm, a key problem remains, that it is often difficult to explain what operators really know, or why what they do really works. Still most attention is given to planning the physical move and to the...

Project
To deploy qualitative research that extends current knowledge on big data and how big data influences and support supply chain management purposes. The key objective is to increase the understanding of big data in SCM literature and to reduce the somehow confused view on big data. Furthermore, the objective is to support SCM professionals in their effort to develop data-driven companies. A series of academic articles are expected to be published. Feel free to discuss /comment this project and its updates.
