    Composer: A prototype multilingual model composition tool2013In: MODPROD2013: 7th MODPROD Workshop on Model-Based Product Development / [ed] Peter Fritzson, Umeå: Umeå universitet , 2013Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Facing the task to design, simulate or optimize a complex system itis common to find models and data for the system expressed in differentformats, implemented in different simulation software tools. When a newmodel is developed, a target platform is chosen and existing componentsimplemented with different tools have to be converted. This results inunnecessary work duplication and lead times. The Modelica languageinitiative [2] partially solves this by allowing developers to move modelsbetween different tools following the Modelica standard. Another possi-bility is to exchange models using the Functional Mockup Interface (FMI)standard that allows computer models to be used as components in othersimulations, possibly implemented using other programming languages[1]. With the Modelica and FMI standards entering development, there isneed for an easy-to-use tool that supports design, editing and simulationof such multilingual systems, as well as for retracting system informationfor formulating and solving optimization problems.A prototype solution for a graphical block diagram tool for design, edit-ing, simulation and optimization of multilingual systems has been createdand evaluated for a specific system. The tool is named Composer [3].The block diagram representation should be generic, independent ofmodel implementations, have a standardized format and yet support effi-cient handling of complex data. It is natural to look for solutions amongmodern web technologies, specifically HTML5. The format for represent-ing two dimensional vector graphics in HTML5 is Scalable Vector Graphics(SVG). We combine the SVG format with the FMI standard. In a firststage, we take the XML-based model description of FMI as a form for de-scribing the interface for each component, in a language independent way.Simulation parameters can also be expressed on this form, and integratedas metadata into the SVG image. 

    The prototype, using SVG in conjunction with FMI, is implementedin JavaScript and allow creation and modification of block diagrams directly in the web browser. Generated SVG images are sent to the serverwhere they are translated to program code, allowing the simulation ofthe dynamical system to be executed using selected implementations. Analternative mode is to generate optimization problem from the systemdefinition and model parameters. The simulation/optimization result is 

    returned to the web browser where it is plotted or processed using otherstandard libraries.The fiber production process at SCA Packaging Obbola [4] is used asan example system and modeled using Composer. The system consists oftwo fiber production lines that produce fiber going to a storage tank [5].The paper machine is taking fiber from the tank as needed for production.A lot of power is required during fiber production and the purpose of themodel was to investigate weather electricity costs could be reduced byrescheduling fiber production over the day, in accordance with the electricity spot price. Components are implemented for dynamical simulationusing OpenModelica and for discrete event using Python. The Python implementation supports constraint propagation between components andoptimization over specified variables. Each component is interfaced as aFunctional Mock-up Unit (FMU), allowing components to be connectedand properties specified in language independent way. From the SVGcontaining the high-level system information, both Modelica and Pythoncode is generated and executed on the web server, potentially hosted ina high performance data center. More implementations could be addedwithout modifying the SVG system description.We have shown that it is possible to separate system descriptions onthe block diagram level from implementations and interface between thetwo levels using FMI. In a continuation of this project, we aim to integratethe FMI standard also for co-simulation, such that components implemented in different languages could be used together. One open questionis to what extent FMUs of the same component, but implemented withdifferent tools, will have the same model description. For the SVG-basedsystem description to be useful, the FMI model description must remainthe same, or at least contain a large overlap, for a single component implemented in different languages. This will be further investigated in futurework.

    Conflict-free routing of multi-stop warehouse trucks2019In: Optimization Letters, ISSN 1862-4472, E-ISSN 1862-4480Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The recent interest in greater vehicular autonomy for factory and warehouse automation has stimulated research in conflict-free routing: a challenging network routing problem in which vehicles may not pass each other. Motivated by a real-world case study, we consider one such application: truck movements in a tightly constrained warehouse. We propose an extension of an existing conflict-free routing algorithm to consider multiple stopping points per route. A high level metaheuristic is applied to determine the route construction and assignment of vehicles to routes.

    Toward Object-Oriented Knowledge-Based Parametric Design Thinking2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The parameter, as a variable of differentiation, defines the limits and boundaries of a system and the conditions for its operation. It is through parameters that we are able to produce certain logical relationships between different parts in design procedure. Fundamental to this, however, is the assumption that the object or phenomenawe are modeling is in fact quantifiable. Advances in computational processing have promoted our capacity, and thus faith in the ability, to systematically classify and itemize the world around us. The Parametricism Manifesto concerns itself solely with appearance and arejection of the term Parametricism in certain levels could be clearly visible within the contemporary discourse of Object-oriented and knowledge-based approach that reflects the cognitive attitude of the designer/architect regarding the object-oriented reasoning and analogy. Moreover, instead of having parametric manifestation alternate terms such as digitally intelligent design , algorithmic design, object oriented design , Context-oriented design , Parametric thinking , and even postparametric design have arisen and could be used to describe this vastly differentiated field. What these design theories do share, however, is a predilection and belief in the tool. Nowadays the project fields are information-rich contexts and the tool sets for design are able to interpret, analyze, synthesize and realize these data into the design procedure. This research mainly aims to uncover potentialities of the existing enablers and assistive technologies in context-oriented design in order to have more content-embedded architectural conceptualization solutions.

    Finite Element Analysis of a Washing Machine Cylinder2010Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis a finite element model of a household washing machine cylinder is built and analysed in ABAQUS 6.9-2. The aim is to help Asko appliances in conducting similar analysis for future manufacturing of high capacity cylinders by reducing experimentation. The analysis is mainly concerned with an evenly distributed load at a constant angular velocity. The load is applied with the help of lead plates instead of clothes. The cylinder is loaded with three thin (2 mm) lead plates weighing 2 kg each. The plates with dimensional 370x240x2 mm are mounted with one strip of double sided foam tape inside the cylinder. To estimate the behavior of the cylinder the strains are measured when the cylinder is rotating at 1620 and 2200 revolution per minute (rpm). To validate the model the numerical analyses are compared with experimental results. The results clearly show that the numerical strain values fit with experimental strain values.

    Växelverkan mellan intuitiva idéer och formella resonemang: En fallstudie av universitetsstudenters arbete med en analysuppgift2008In: Nordisk matematikkdidaktikk, ISSN 1104-2176, Vol. 13, no 1, p. 29-50Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Studiens syfte är att visa hur en växelverkan mellan intuitiva idéer och formella resonemang kan gestalta sig i en problemlösningsprocess. Studien visar att universitetsstudenter redan under sitt första år av matematikstudier förmår utnyttja en sådan växelverkan. En grupp studenter har arbetat med en analysuppgift som berör begreppen funktion och derivata samt inkluderar ett induktionsbevis. Studenterna utnyttjar i den kreativa processen intuitiva idéer och formella resonemang i ett dynamiskt samspel. Växlingarna har ett flertal funktioner: att kontrollera intuitiva uppfattningar, att skaffa nya utgångspunkter för problemlösningsprocessen, att ekonomisera resonemang och att driva arbetet vidare.
