    User certification of Workplace Software: Assessing both Artefact and Usage2009In: Behavior and Information Technology, ISSN 0144-929X, E-ISSN 1362-3001, Vol. 28, no 2, p. 101-120Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article summarises activities and results from the quality assessment project 'Quality Assurance of IT Support at Work' (ITQ) which has been performed by Swedish researchers in close cooperation with trade unions 1999-2005. The ITQ project is part of a network, UsersAward, which works for the goal to develop and implement a strategy for good software products on the work floor. A main result of the ITQ project is the first version of a software certification programme, User Certified 2002, which is described in some detail. The underlying theoretical arguments for its design and the performed pilot projects which have informed its implementation are also presented. The outcome of performed certifications is discussed in terms of stakeholder response; in terms of whether to certify artefact, processes, or both; and in terms of the relationship between software certification, standardisation, and public procurement agreements. One conclusion from the project is that a viable software certification programme has to cover the software's built-in features, its deployment process, and its actual situated usage. A second conclusion is that the buying organisation has to implement integrative processes in which its organisational development and its implementation of IT systems are coordinated. Conclusions are also drawn with respect to the set of organisational patterns underlying the UsersAward initiative-certifications, user panels, user surveys, user conferences and a yearly IT Prize contest. Finally, implications and plans for the future, especially international research and union cooperation activities, and further development of the certification process are described.

    Seeking the Breakthrough of the Internationalization of Yu-tong Bus Company2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Nowadays, China bus industry has stepped into a relative fast development stage. Domestic manufacturers have turned their attention to the international market. Yu-tong Bus Company, as one of the first-class and representative manufacturers in the industry, has made indubitable achievements in the international market, especially in middle and low-end market. However, for the process of internationalization, Yu-tong still needs to confront some barriers and obstacles. Particularly, for high-end market, more gaps exist which lead to the limitation of its competitive forces. In the thesis, we made the SWOT analysis about the export condition of Yu-tong according to the materials and data that we collected, combining with the relevant theories, conducting various analysis and investigations, we considered “Reverse FDI”(Reverse Foreign Direct Investment) as more appropriate and effective way for the internationalization, and revolving around the theory, we mainly concentrated on the extending of high-end market, tabled some proposals about seeking the breakthrough in the internationalization of Yu-tong Bus Company.

    Centrala logistiska faktorer i en förädlingskedja för massproduktion av träpellets: Fallstudie på Kopparfors Pelletsfabrik2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This examination work aims to describe how a supply chain around the biggest pellets factory in Sweden will be configured in a logistic perspective. The plant and associated infrastructure are in the building phase and will have production start on the 2 November 2009. The key question that is set in this examination work is to recognize the logistic processes which are essential for an effective flow of materials and information that link the source of supply with the ultimate customer. In order to get the answer, a flowcharting of these supply chain processes is required for understanding the pipeline activities such as input and storage of raw material, the production system and the output of pellets to the customers. The basis for this supply chain map is a model-based representation of these logistic processes and activities that are involved around the pellets factory. This model was configured according to scientific theories and the supply chain's fundamental concept. In these maps, the model will highlight the network of inter-linked activities in the system and finally show the opportunities for recommendations and improvements in productivity through reengineering those logistic processes.

    The relationship between developers and customers in agile methodology2008In: Proceedings of the International Conference on Computer Science and Information Technology, ICCSIT 2008, Singapore, 2008, p. 566-572Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Agile methods such as XP emphasize the adaptation to changes, the collaboration with customers and the role of individuals. The project manager, developer and customer should have a tactic to handle the uncertain factors and the management conflicts in software development process. XP ′ s on-site customer practice makes the customer play a important role in development process, and facilitate the broad collaboration between developer and customer. Based on the feature of XP project life cycle and practices, this paper explores respective activities and responsibilities between development team and customer team, and the issues in their collaboration. Some practices in which customer participates is addressed, the activities of both developer and customer are described, some probable problems when customer and programmer work together are presented, and a formal example is given. © 2008 IEEE.

    An Exploratory Study of Customer Satisfaction Based on ACSI Model: an application to the No.2 bus service in Gävle of Sweden2009Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis used ACSI model as a theoretical basis, which is a cause-and-effect model, to measure the quality of goods or service that starts from “customer expectations” to “customer satisfaction”. The purpose of this thesis is to find a suitable model for developing the customer satisfaction of No.2 bus service, by examining the relationships between perceived quality, customer expectation, perceived value and customer satisfaction in ACSI model. According to the data from survey of the international students in Gävle University, who lives in Sätra of Gävle of Sweden, this thesis used the partial least squares (PLS) regression to estimates the ASCI model. As a result, the coefficients of each variable and R-square statistics indicate that the relationships between PQ, CE, CS and PV are very weak; PV should be ignored in the case. Therefore, the ACSI model in this case had been revised, and the conclusion can be drawn: the ACSI model was unsuitable for No.2 bus case, furthermore, this study presents a new model for No.2, which is “customer expectation—perceived quality—customer satisfaction”. Consequently, the X-traffic Company should know the customers expectation and provide the service which can meet customer needs. By expanding previous research and based on ACSI model, the study empirically examines the relationships between three customer satisfaction dimensions.

    Superposition of Power-law Models for Hardware/Software System Reliability Data Analysis2003In: International Journal of Reliability, Quality and Safety Engineering (IJRQSE), ISSN 0218-5393, Vol. 10, no 2, p. 121-130Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    One of the widely used NHPP models in reliability is the so-called power-law model, also known as the Duane model. A power-law model can be applied in analyzing failure data of both software and hardware systems. Nevertheless, the power-law model is no longer applicable to describe the failure behavior when a hardware/software embedded system is concerned since the failures can come from both hardware and software. How to analyze the failure data of this type is still a problem to study and a new type of model is needed to develop. In this paper, we consider the superposition of the power-law models (SPLM) as one candidate to describe the failure behaviors of hardware/software systems. The characteristics of SPLMs are thoroughly studied. It is shown that an SPLM has the intensity function that can be increasing, decreasing, increasing-then-decreasing or decreasing-then-increasing. Specifically, the identification method of the superposition of power-law processes is provided by using the TTT-plot technique. The TTT-transform of a superposition of power-law processes is DFR-like. Therefore, the conditional TTT-plot should present a convex pattern if the system failures follow a superposition process by a few power-law processes. This provides us an easy way to identify the model when the testing data is available.
