    • Arctic Agriculture by Using Fish Farming Waste in Northern Norway 

      Sæterbø, Mathias (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-28)
      With the growing aquaculture, improved management of the environmental, logistic-managerial, social, and economic aspect are vital to preserving sustainability in the industry. The dissertation addresses the potential processing of the fish waste in aquaponics (a combination of two highly effective production technologies: hydroponics and recirculating aquaculture). Involving a suggestion for ...
    • Design and construction of a flexible manufacturing system test bench 

      Andresen, Martin Røysland (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-28)
      This thesis explores the history, concept and criteria of flexible manufacturing systems. A small-scale test bench is designed and constructed for educational and demonstrational pur- poses. The test bench in comprised of an industrial robot, a CNC machine, and a conveyor. These are all controlled and automated from a PLC with a connected touch panel for human machine interface. It describes in ...
    • Total Productive Maintenance in an Industry 4.0 Framework 

      Noureddine, Rami (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-28)
      Maintenance is a key operation function that is required to improve business performance by avoiding equipment breakdown. In 1971, Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), a lean manufacturing approach, has been developed and widely used as a maintenance strategy to gain a competitive advantage in industry. However, with the advent of new technology and the internet of things, manufacturing process are ...
    • Thin Wall Structure by Welding 

      Arumairasa, Hans Ivar (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-28)
      Manufacturing of thin wall structure by wire arc additive manufacturing (WAAM) is on the main application of additive manufacturing. 3D-printing technology has significant advantages over traditional milling and machining techniques or welded analogs. Thin wall structure constitutes an essential and growing proportion of engineering construction, within common areas as in structural aerospace and ...
    • Production and Logistics Systems Improvements - Biim Ultrasound AS 

      Tofah, Dzifa Korbla Wisdom (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-28)
      A crucial aspect of the supply chain network design process is deciding on optimal locations to situate new facilities. Facility location decisions rely on many factors, some of which might be conflicting with each other. The decision factors can be either quantitative or qualitative, thus a brute-force prioritization of one over another could be detrimental overall. To ensure the efficacy of the ...
    • Onshore and Offshore Coordination of Logistics Services at Seaports 

      Adu-Gyamfi Appiah, Bright (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-28)
      As global trade increases, sizes of vessels and cargo throughputs have also experienced a sudden rise thereby putting excess pressure on ship berths and ports. This is shifting most ports to much smarter technological solutions with the aim of optimizing operations, increasing efficiency and reducing logistics cost without the need for huge infrastructural and equipment investments. Developing the ...
    • Digital twin simulation with Visual Components 

      Arnarson, Halldor (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-28)
      A digital twin is a new and emerging tool of the fourth industrial revolution. It is an extensive part of connecting the manufacturing equipment together to develop a smart factory. Investigation of simulating manufacturing system to bind the digital world with the physical, allows for analysis of data and monitoring of systems to head off problems before they even occur, preventing downtime, develop ...

UiT- The Arctic University of Norway, Narvik is one of the fine institutions which provide training course on Lean Six Sigma for Master’s students studying ...
    • Product Quality Assurance using Engineering Strategies for an SME with an ATO Manufacturing System Located in the Arctic Region depending on a Global Supply Chain 

      Steinhauer, Peer Salvator (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-28)
      A small and medium sized enterprise (SME) with an assembly to order manufacturing system (ATO-MS) depending on a global supply chain has especially challenges when it comes to secure the quality. The parts procured from a global supply chain represent a big amount of value invested in to the short line of the MS. Depending on the definition of quality from the suppliers, how can the company react ...
