    Metoder och verktyg för motivation till och integration av arbetsmiljöarbete2006Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Rapporten utgår från forskningsområdet "Hur kan och bör arbetsmiljöarbete bedrivas och integreras i organisationers kärnverksamhet?" vid tema SMARTA, Arbetslivsinstitutet. I ett tidigare arbete har ett antal egenskaper identifierats som viktiga för motivation och engagemang för arbetsmiljöarbete, sk Moveit-egenskaper. Dessa egenskaper och deras roll i arbetsmiljöarbetet ställs här i relation till perspektivet integrerat arbetsmiljöarbete, där arbetsmiljön ingår i styrsystemet och arbetsmiljöarbete betraktas som en del av styrningen av produktion och verksamhet. Syftet är att utveckla förståelsen för viktiga aspekter i arbetsmiljöarbetet utifrån en målsättning att metoder ska bidra till ett integrerat och kontinuerligt fungerande arbetsmiljöarbete. Den metodansats som rapporten utgår från bygger till stor del på interaktion med företagshälsovårdcentraler, konsulter och ergonomer samt på tidigare forskning. Ett viktigt steg i interaktionen har varit workshops som arrangerats vid tre tillfällen och vid olika platser - Borlänge, Göteborg och Umeå. Rapporten beskriver ett underlag för att bedöma metoders motivationskraft, erfarenheter från workshops med aktörer inom arbetsmiljöområdet, en fristående konsults tillämpning av metoden Visit samt olika former av förutsättningar för arbetsmiljöarbete, såsom företags mognad och hur metoder introduceras på arbetsplatser. Aspekter som identifieras som viktiga för ett integrerat arbetsmiljöarbete är: delegering av ansvar och befogenheter i arbetsmiljöfrågor, bred delaktighet och samverkan mellan anställda och ledning, hanterbara men ändå utmanande krav på arbetsmiljöarbetet, processfokusering och dynamik, samt utrymme för reflektion. Flera av dessa aspekter uppvisar överensstämmelser med egenskaper hos metoder som bidrar till att skapa motivation för arbetsmiljöarbete.

    Tasks in the generative leadership: Creating conditions for autonomy and integration2009In: Researching Work and Learning 6, Roskilde, 2009Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper focuses competences needed in order for first line managers to pursue a leadership practice called generative leadership. Work organisations where employees are required to autonomously and in work groups make decisions, take responsibilities and interact in multiple directions, raises demands on managers to have competence to organise for integrated autonomy, communication and border crossing, and to enhance group creativity and work attractivity. These competencies identified so far include being able to enable group interaction, foster dialogue competence, enable utilization of language ambiguities, encourage transparency, and organise for job embeddedness.

    Bättre utnyttjande av nya och befintliga förrådslokaler på SSAB Tunnplåt2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    The purpose of this assignment at SSAB Tunnplåt in Borlänge was mainly to investigate and describe the circumstances for the spare parts stored in storage facilities within the area of operation. Even new facilities which could serve as storage rooms and their opportunities for storing spare parts were an important part of the investigation. This because of the need for improved storing of spare parts. Furthermore, market offers where reviewed for storage of spare parts in more tailored designs. The work will culminate in proposals for improvement which is of importance for the development surrounding the storage and handling of spare parts. This is since the design and management of existing storage facilities is not perceived as satisfactory with regards to spare parts characteristics. Moreover, the amount of stock locations is too few in relation to the actual need. The approach used to achieve objectives of the work was an advanced mapping for collection of vital data. The mapping consisted of interviews with involved parties, both internal and external, for the most comprehensive picture of the problems as possible. In addition, a literature survey was conducted to identify possible options for the objectives of the work as well as a personal study of existing and new storage facilities. Furthermore, the market offers for improved conditions in storage rooms were examined. A clear picture of internal logistics and warehouse activities for spare parts at SSAB Tunnplåt has been obtained during this work. From this picture, it is concluded that work in and around storage facilities can be made more efficient. SSAB Tunnplåt should additionally make efforts in the storage facilities for better use of the available storage space. A number of proposals for improvement for each studied storage facility and spare parts management in general have been conducted. These proposals for improvement include presentations to improve the design of the studied storage facilities towards enabling more stock locations. The proposals also include additional equipment for handling spare parts, scrap handling, as well as expansions of the maintenance system which supports activities in the spare parts management.

    Utformning av operatörsverktyg för åskådliggörande av rörliga kostnader2010Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med detta arbete som utförts på Kvarnsvedens pappersbruk i Borlänge har varit att framställa ett operatörsverktyg. Ett operatörsverktyg som ska åskådliggöra processens rörliga kostnader, som kan benämnas en produktkalkyl för stunden. Verktyget skall senare möjliggöra förbättrade utsikter för kontroll, styrning och uppföljning av rörliga kostnader inom företaget samt öka möjligheterna till att minska de rörliga kostnaderna som är kopplade till processen. Massafabriken på Kvarnsvedens pappersbruk och pappersmaskin 11 har utgjort arbetets grundläggande måltavlor för operatörsverktyget. Arbetet innefattade kartläggning och granskning av pappersprocessen för att skapa en så heltäckande bild av uppdragsbeskrivningen som möjligt. När processen studerats och processflöden kartlagts mer ingående påbörjades utvecklandet av operatörsverktyget. Vidare utfördes en litteraturundersökning för att urskilja potentiella handlingsalternativ vid utformningen av operatörsverktyget samt för en ökad förståelse för verksamheten och ämnesområdet. I dagsläget saknas direkt återkoppling, i realtid, för den kontinuerliga utvecklingen av de rörliga kostnaderna eftersom nuvarande uppföljning är baserad på månadsrapporter. Operatörsverktyget som arbetet utmynnade i kommer med hög sannolikhet vara av betydelse för utvecklingen av verksamheten på företaget. Operatörsverktyget kommer även att understödja både styrningen och kontrollen av processens rörliga kostnader. Förhoppningen är att verktyget skall fungera som ett hjälpmedel i arbetet med att optimera arbetet och processen. Några av de fördelar som operatörsverktyget förväntas ge är bland annat att operativa prestationer omedelbart kan kopplas till företagets resultat, ett snabbt synliggörande av exempelvis resultat vilket öppnar för faktabaserad beslutsstrategi samt att viktig information inte behöver gå förlorad. Operatörsverktyget kan framöver anpassas och utnyttjas på fler av verksamhetens pappersmaskiner.

    Abstract [en]

    This study aims at investigating the influence of the beer label on women's beer

    interest in order to find out if women are affected by the appearance of the beer

    label. To investigate this, a visual content analysis was conducted to obtain the

    most common design elements from the macro and micro breweries' labels.

    Then, typefaces were created based on the most common design elements for

    the respective brewery types, then evaluated in a web site. The web browser

    consisted of 130 women who, on the one hand, had to assess the type labels

    according to their own preferences, but also answered questions relating to

    labels from a gender perspective. Finally, four semi-structured deep interviews

    were conducted with respondents active in the beer industry to gain a broader

    perspective on the subject. Respondents' answers were used to answer the

    questions in the study.

    The results of this study show that the micro and macrobreweries have some

    differences in their design. The micro-brewer's beer labels were more colorful

    and had a more playful design over the macrobreweries that used a more

    traditional design.

    The study showed that gender norms and taste factors affect women's beer

    interest to a greater extent than the actual beer label. The study also shows that

    women are interested in locally produced beer, flavors and more non-alcoholic

    varieties. The results presented in the study suggest that women find that some

    labels have a masculine appearance and that there is an interest in more

    colorful, lighter and less masculine labels.

    Vilka faktorer påverkar svenska hushållens sparkvot?: En tidsserieanalys om svenska hushållens sparkvot åren 1970-20172019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines factors that affect the Swedish households’ savings ratio. The savings ratio is defined in this paper as the share of disposable income that is not consumed. Based on economic theories such as the Life Cycle hypothesis and Ricardian equivalence together with previous studies on the subject, we have developed six relevant variables for the study. The data were collected for all variables aggregated annually for the period 1970- 2017. The independent variables used in the study are: inflation, GDP growth per capita, interest rate, unemployment, dependency ratio (demography) and the budget balance of the Swedish state. In order to investigate how the independent variables affect the dependent variable, an econometric method in the form of OLS will be used. Four econometric models were used to estimate how the independent variables affect Swedish households’ savings ratio during the period. The results of the study show that no variable had a statistically significant effect in relation to the Swedish households’ savings ratio, with respect to the requirement for stationarity in the variables to be fulfilled. However, there were some variables that proved to have a practical and statistically significant effect in relation to the Swedish households’ savings ratio if stationarity is ignored.

    Från ord till (e-)handling: - Integration av e-handelssystem i SiteVision2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    The client, Senselogic, had noticed an increased demand for an e-commerce system integrated into its product, SiteVision, something that did not previously exist. Senselogic wanted to integrate a third-party system to manage e-commerce. The problem was that there were very many e-commerce solutions to choose from. In order to select the best system it was necessary to evaluate the e-commerce systems and compare them to each other. To identify the elements that has to be included in an e-commerce system a study of literature was conducted. From the parts identified in the study of literature, a number of criteria were presented. Those criteria were then supplemented with additional criteria that Senselogic required of an e-commerce system before integrating it with SiteVision. Before the evaluation a number of test cases were created to test whether the ecommerce systems fulfilled to the criteria developed. These test cases were then used in the evaluation of the e-commerce systems while a test score was filled in. Then the evaluations of the different systems were compiled and compared in order to see which system best fulfilled the criteria. There was one system that scored higher than the others in the evaluation created. That was the system chosen to integrate with SiteVision.

    Tekniskt samråd: Studie av likvärdighet i utförandet2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    A new planning- and building act was applied the 2nd may 2011. The intention was to simplify the planning- and building process as the control of constructing where tightened. In the new act there has been introduced a deadline for the building permits of ten weeks. To be allowed to begin the constructing you will need a starting clearance. The clearance is preceded by a technical consultation.

    The purpose of this study was to survey if the technical consultation is performed equivalent between different municipalities in the county of Dalarna. Other purposes was:

     To create a basis for improvement regarding the technical consultation.

     Examine how to facilitate or improve the consultation.

     Illustrate why the technical consultation is so important in the building process.

     Clarify the differences in the new and the old act regarding the consultation.

    To understand what a technical consultation is and how it should be performed the work began with a literature study. A literature study was also performed to pick a method for the work. These studies resulted in a method based on the semi-structured interview form. A number of interviews were conducted in five building committees in Dalarnas County. To study the technical consultation in practice a visit during a consultation were conducted at Mora – Orsa and Falun municipalities.

    This thesis was delimited to examining how technical consultation is performed and works in various building committees in Dalarnas county. The work was delimited to only process opinions from building inspectors and a control manager.

    The results have been compiled and are reported in the results chapter. All respondents in this thesis have the opinion that complete documentation is essential to carry out a technical consultation. The developer should be well-informed and familiar with the project and an experienced developer could simplify the building process. A technical consultation is of great importance to ensure that the society’s conditions upholds. It is particularly important to hold a consultation when the developer is inexperienced.

    Vulnerability in Small Single Industry Towns in Sweden: A Case Study of Hofors Municipality2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Title: Vulnerability in Small Single Industry Towns in Sweden - A Case Study of Hofors

    Municipality

    Svenska: Små och sårbara industriorter i Sverige - en fallstudie om Hofors Kommun

    Subject: Business Administration

    Keywords: Business Climate, Network, Collaboration, Single Industry Towns

    Background: There is a dependency situation between the industry and the municipality. This

    makes Hofors municipality vulnerable. The industry Ovako Steel is the biggest employer in the

    municipality and is therefore very important to Hofors. If a place have a good business climate it

    is easier for employment opportunities, good ideas and entrepreneurship to grow easily. There is

    a lot that a municipality can do in order to enhance the business climate.

    Purpose: The purpose of this research is to identify to what extent a good business climate can

    impact on the vulnerability situation for small single industry towns in Sweden.

    Method: Case study with semi-structured interviews and secondary data.

    Conclusion: Based on our empirical study a good business climate could be seen as a useful

    strategy for small and vulnerable single industry towns in Sweden. By developing a good

    business climate, the more attractive it is for entrepreneurs to start their businesses and broaden

    the business community. Municipalities with a good business climate is also a place where it

    easier to start new work opportunities in times of reductions in the industry.

    Being dependent on one industry does not have to imply only negative effects. In our empirical

    study of Hofors situation the collaboration between the network Entré Hofors and the industry

    Ovako Steel is reciprocally and positive. The general implication for Hofors and other small

    vulnerable single industry towns seems to be the importance of changing the attitudes towards

    entrepreneurship as well as the ability to create new work opportunities in times when the

    industry needs to cut down or the worst situation possible; closing down the whole industry.

    An optical imaging study of 0.4 <= z <= 0.8 quasar host galaxies. I. Observations and reduction2003In: Astronomy and Astrophysics, ISSN 0004-6361, E-ISSN 1432-0746, Vol. 404, p. 883-899Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We have conducted an optical imaging study aimed at resolving the host galaxies of 79 radio-loud and radio-quiet quasars at z=0.4-0.8, extending the number of investigated objects in this redshift range by ~ 45%. Observations were performed mainly in the R band but also in V and I band using the Nordic Optical Telescope on La Palma. In this paper we discuss the sample composition and observations and the reduction techniques used. The quasars were selected in pairs of radio-loud and radio-quiet objects matched in the z-V plane in order to facilitate a statistical comparison. The radio-loud part of the sample contains comparable numbers of flat and steep radio spectrum sources which also are matched in redshift and V magnitude. Point spread function subtraction was performed using one-dimensional luminosity profiles both on the quasar image and on a field star, and subtracted images and luminosity profiles are shown for each quasar field. The detection rate is 60% for the radio-quiet host galaxies and 80% for radio-loud hosts. The host galaxies have magnitudes which make them brighter than an L* galaxy by a factor of 1.5-4 at the low end of the redshift range, which increases by 2-3 times towards the higher end of the redshift range. Both radio-quiet and radio-loud hosts follow the radio galaxy R-z Hubble relation well. Analysis and discussion of colours and morphology is presented in \citet{orn}. Based on observations made with the Nordic Optical Telescope, operated on the island of La Palma jointly by Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden, in the Spanish Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos of the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias.

    Abstract [en]

    The recent decline in newspaper circulation requires newspaper publishers to shift their focus in the future. There are several reasons that there are less printed newspapers, since the 90's news on the Internet have increased, newspapers have become better at using the Internet as a news source and more sources have emerged. In recent years, the tablet has become common property, and many owners of these like to read their news on these devices. It requires that advertising can be adapted to tablets and accepted by readers at a higher rate if a transition from print to digital newspapers is to be possible. To make the advertising more accepted, it can be made more relevant to the reader by means of targeted advertising, and more informative through interactivity. If the readers welcomes advertisements and read them, ad buyers will want to advertise in the newspaper at a higher rate. Primarily, the paper magazine needs to develop to pay for their digital initiatives.

    Användbarhetstest i samband med utveckling av webbplats2003Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Varje år lägger företag ner hundratusentals kronor för egna webbplatser. När programmerare och ledning är nöjda med utseende och funktionalitet sätts webbplatsen i bruk. Det är ofta först nu som företaget får in respons på om webbplatsen från användarna. I vissa fall blir detta en katastrof eftersom fel produkt erbjuds till användaren eller att användaren inte förstår hur han ska använda produkten. För att förhindra detta problem på bästa möjliga sätt används användbarhetstest för att utreda vad användaren av det blivande systemet vill ha innan systemet distribueras. Målet med examensarbetet är att konstruera en webbplats avsedd för den kommande utbildningen Creative business management. Syftet är därefter att visa hur användbarhetstest på bästa möjliga sätt bör användas i samband med utvecklingsarbetet av webbplatser. Utvecklingsarbetet sker med hjälp av en anpassad version av Siegels utvecklingsmodell. För att utföra användbarhetstest används sedan Molich modell för användbarhetstest. Arbetet visar vidare att användbarhetstest bör användas kontinuerligt under hela utvecklingsarbetet för att inte riskera att arbetet glider iväg åt fel riktning. Det krävs endast fem testdeltagare för att finna 80 % av de möjliga användbarhetsproblemen på en webbplats. Det optimala är att använda fem testdeltagare i flera etapper i samband med olika versioner och uppgraderingar av webbplatsen för att kvalitetssäkra arbetet.

    Flockning och förtjockning i High-Rate-förtjockare – en jämförelse med konventionell förtjockarteknik och lamellsedimentering.2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    In the process laboratory of Metso minerals (Sala) AB, continuous tests have been made with a laboratory unit High-Rate thickener. The tests are made in order to compare three methods of thickening techniques of suspended solids. The three techniques are High-Rate thickening, conventional thickening and lamella thickening. The High-Rate and the conventional trials are based on a continuous method, while the lamella thickener is based on batch trials. Because the lamella thickener is based on batch trials and there were some optimization problems with the adding point of the flocculant at the continuous trials, it was not feasible to compare the lamella thickener with the other two thickener types. On the other hand, since the optimization problems were the same for the other two methods there was no problem comparing them. The result of the comparison between the High-Rate thickener and the conventional thickener, was, that the High-Rate thickener manages to work at a higher rise rate with a lower consumption of flocculant than the conventional thickener. Seeing to the unit area that is needed by each thickener it is apparent that the conventional thickener demands a higher unit area than the High-Rate thickener to achieve the same amount of solids in the underflow. It has also been showed that the High-Rate thickener demands a lesser quantity of flocculant at the same amount of suspended solids in the feed than the conventional thickener.

    Grafisk profilering i tatueringsbranschen2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    En väl utformad grafisk profil kan hjälpa ett företag att skapa medvetenhet och kundlojalitet. Den grafiska profilen består bland annat av logotyp, färger, typsnitt och profil- och korrespondensmaterial som allt måste vara enhetligt utformat och anpassat efter företagets kultur, målgrupp och vision. Projektet syftar till att undersöka och beskriva hur tatuerares grafiska profil bör vara utformad för att bäst fylla sitt syfte. En enkätundersökning gjordes med målet att skapa förståelse för tatueringskundernas syn på den grafiska profilen och kompletterades med en intervju med en förtroendeingivande tatuerare som i sina åsikter fick representera tatueringsbranschen. Litteratur i ämnet grafisk profilering och grafisk design kompletterade undersökningen ytterligare. Resultaten från enkätundersökningen stämde inte helt överens med litteraturen vilket gör det svårt att ge ett exakt svar på projektets frågeställningar

    Diskonteringsränta vid nedskrivningsprövning av goodwill: En studie av avvikelse mellan rapporterad och teoretisk diskonteringsränta2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studien visar att en större andel av bolagen från båda länder redovisar diskonteringsränta år 2012 jämfört med år 2007. Andelen rapporterade diskonteringsräntor som faller inom ramen för en accepterad avvikelse är något högre för Sverige jämfört med Finland båda jämförelseåren. Andelen accepterade differenser halverades för båda länderna från år 2007 till 2012. År 2012 rapporterades generellt högre diskonteringsräntor än de teoretiskt beräknade vad gäller båda länderna.

    Redovisning av den kommunala pensionsskulden: Resultatredovisning med fullfonderingsmodellen2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The municipal pension liability is debated since this according to law is to be accounted for in a way that in several respects is contrary to generally accepted accounting principles by removing a large debt from the balance sheet and instead account this as a contingent liability. Some municipalities have chosen to go against the law and instead report the entire pension liability in the balance sheet. These municipalities claim that they do this in order to give a more accurate picture of the municipality's financial position. However, previous studies speculate that a transition has been made to conceal a high result. Previous studies have also shown that artificial reporting occur in municipalities and that there are links between this and the design of the balance sheet. The purpose of this study has been to gain an understanding of how the municipalities that use the full funding model reason about accounting for the pension liability. The focus of the study has been on the 3 reporting of earnings. The method used has been a qualitative method. On the other hand, municipalities ' annual reports have been studied and interviews with municipalities have been conducted. The study shows that municipalities that use the full funding model use different results when it brings out the balance requirement results. The explanations given differ depending on how the municipalities have chosen to report the results. The municipalities that follow the results of the full funding model even in the balance requirement result make this a more accurate picture, while those who use the mixed model's results in the balance requirement result also want to try to follow the law.

    Thermal Performance of a Solarus CPC-Thermal Collector2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The  aim  of  this  master  thesis  is  an  investigation  of  the  thermal  performance  of  a  thermal compound parabolic concentrating (CPC) collector from Solarus. The collector consists of two troughs with absorbers which are coated with different types of paint with  unknown  properties.  The  lower  and  upper  trough  of  the  collector  have  been  tested individually.

    In  order  to  accomplish  the  performance  of  the  two  collectors,  a  thorough  literature  study  in  the  fields  of  CPC  technology,  various  test  methods,  test  standards  for  solar thermal  collectors  as  well  as  the  latest  articles  relating  on  the  subject  were  carried  out. In addition, the set‐up of the thermal test rig was part of the thesis as well. The thermal  performance  was  tested  according  to  the  steady  state  test  method  as  described in the European standard 12975‐2. Furthermore, the thermal performance of  a  conventional  flat  plate  collector  was  carried  out  for  verification  of  the  test  method.

    The  CPC‐Thermal  collector  from  Solarus  was  tested  in  2013  and  the  results  showed  four  times  higher  values  of  the  heat  loss  coefficient  UL (8.4  W/m²K)  than  what  has been reported for a commercial collector from Solarus. This value was assumed to be too large and it was assumed that the large value was a result of the test method used that time. Therefore, another aim was the comparison of the results achieved in this work with the results from the tests performed in 2013.

    The results of the thermal performance showed that the optical efficiency of the lower trough of the CPC‐T collector is 77±5% and the corresponding heat loss coefficient UL 4.84±0.20  W/m²K.  The  upper  trough  achieved  an  optical  efficiency  of  75±6  %  and  a  heat loss coefficient UL of 6.45±0.27 W/m²K. The results of the heat loss coefficients  are  valid  for  temperature  intervals  between  20°C  and  80°C.  The  different  absorber paintings have a significant impact on the results, the lower trough performs overall better.  The  results  achieved  in  this  thesis  show  lower  heat  loss  coefficients UL and higher optical efficiencies compared to the results from 2013.
