    Evaluating and prioritizing the healthcare waste disposal center locations using a hybrid multi-criteria decision-making method2023In: Scientific Reports, E-ISSN 2045-2322, Vol. 13, no 1, article id 15130Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Healthcare waste disposal center location (HCWDCL) impacts the environment and the health of living beings. Different and sometimes contradictory criteria in determining the appropriate site location for disposing of healthcare waste (HCW) complicate the decision-making process. This research presents a hybrid multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) method, named PROMSIS, to determine the appropriate HCWDCL in a real case. The PROMSIS is the combination of two well-known MCDM methods, namely TOPSIS and PROMETHEE. Moreover, fuzzy theory is used to describe the uncertainties of the problem parameters. To provide a reliable decision on selecting the best HCWDCL, a comprehensive list of criteria is identified through a literature review and experts’ opinions obtained from the case study. In total, 40 criteria are identified and classified into five major criteria, namely economic, environmental, social, technical, and geological. The weight of the considered criteria is determined by the Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) method. Then, the score of the alternative HCWDCLs in each considered criterion is obtained. Finally, the candidate locations for disposing of HCWs are ranked by the proposed fuzzy PROMSIS method. The results show that the most important criteria in ranking the alternatives in the studied case are economic, environmental, and social, respectively. Moreover, the sub-criteria of operating cost, transportation cost, and pollution are identified as the most important sub-criteria, respectively.

    Prioritizing healthcare waste disposal methods considering environmental health using an enhanced multi-criteria decision-making method2023In: Environmental Pollutants and Bioavailability, ISSN 2639-5932, Vol. 35, no 1, p. 250-269, article id 2218568Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Healthcare Waste Disposal Method Selection (HCWDMS) is a complicated problem due to multiple and often contradictory criteria with different importance degrees. Thus, decision-makers are restored to multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) methods to prioritize and select the best HCW disposal methods. This study introduces an enhanced MCDM method to deal with the HCWDMS problem. To address the problem, a comprehensive list of criteria and HCW disposal methods are identified. All the criteria are categorized into four main criteria, and Fuzzy Analysis Hierarchy Process is used to determine the weights of considered criteria and sub-criteria. The study results show that environmental, economic, technical, and social criteria are the most important in selecting disposal methods, respectively. Moreover, the sub-criteria of ‘Health Risk’, ‘Release with health effects’, and ‘Capital cost’ have the highest importance, respectively. Additionally, the methods of ‘Microwave’, ‘Sterilization by autoclave’, and ‘Reverse polymerization’ have the highest priority, respectively.

    Identifying and prioritizing marketing strategies for the building energy management systems using a hybrid fuzzy MCDM technique2023In: Energy Science & Engineering, ISSN 2050-0505, Vol. 11, no 11, p. 4324-4348Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Preventing energy waste in residential and office buildings has emerged as a critical issue in both developed and developing countries over recent decades. The growing demand for oil and energy reserves has amplified the urgency of this concern. The deployment of building energy management systems (BEMSs) can lead to timely responses to changes in environmental conditions, the prevention of energy wastage, a reduction in CO2 emissions, and an increase in the longevity of building equipment. Despite the undeniable benefits of BEMSs, their market size remains small, creating challenges for providers in reaching potential customers. This research seeks to identify and prioritize the marketing strategies for BEMSs. A case study was conducted, employing the “Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats” analysis as a tool for identifying marketing strategies related to BEMSs. This method resulted in the identification of 18 distinct marketing strategies. These strategies were subsequently prioritized using a novel fuzzy multicriteria decision-making technique, VIkor-topSIS, considering six specific criteria. The findings of the study suggested a hierarchical influence of six criteria on the BEMS market, arranged in the following order of significance: effectiveness, cost, attainability, complexity, timing, and popularity. Furthermore, the top three marketing strategies for BEMSs were found to be internet advertising strategies, discounts to consumers, and online sales. The analysis of the results has also offered valuable insights into the strengths and weaknesses of the studied BEMS provider, as well as the opportunities and threats present within the BEMS market.

    Achieving Circular and Efficient Production Systems: Emerging Challenges from Industrial Cases2021In: Advances in Production Management Systems. Artificial Intelligence for Sustainable and Resilient Production Systems: IFIP WG 5.7 International Conference, APMS 2021, Nantes, France, September 5–9, 2021, Proceedings, Part IV / [ed] Alexandre Dolgui; Alain Bernard; David Lemoine; Gregor von Cieminski; David Romero, Cham: Springer, 2021, p. 523-533Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As the need for more responsible production and consumption grows quickly, so does the interest in the concepts of eco-efficiency and circularity. To make swift progress towards sustainability, solutions must be developed and deployed at scale. It is therefore critical to understand the challenges faced by industry to accelerate the uptake of best practices for circular and efficient production systems. This paper presents the emerging issues from three industrial pilots in an on-going collaborative project. We discuss and suggest further work around crucial questions such as: How to deploy circular solutions from lab to industrial scale? How can digitalization support efficient circular processes?.

    Characterizing Digital Dashboards for Smart Production Logistics2022In: Advances in Production Management Systems. Smart Manufacturing and Logistics Systems: Turning Ideas into Action: IFIP WG 5.7 International Conference, APMS 2022, Gyeongju, South Korea, September 25–29, 2022, Proceedings, Part II / [ed] Duck Young Kim; Gregor von Cieminski; David Romero, Cham: Springer Nature Switzerland AG , 2022, p. 521-528Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Developing digital dashboards (DD) that support staff in monitoring, identifying anomalies, and facilitating corrective actions are decisive for achieving the benefits of Smart Production Logistics (SPL). However, existing literature about SPL has not sufficiently investigated the characteristics of DD allowing staff to enhance operational performance. This conceptual study identifies the characteristics of DD in SPL for enhancing operational performance of material handling. The study presents preliminary findings from an ongoing laboratory development, and identifies six characteristics of DD. These include monitoring, analysis, prediction, identification, recommendation, and control. The study discusses the implications of these characteristics when applied to energy consumption, makespan, on-time delivery, and status for material handling. The study proposes the prototype of a DD in a laboratory environment involving Autonomous Mobile Robots.

    Dagligvaruhandelns hållbarhetsarbete i leverantörskedjan: En kvalitativ studie om ansvarstagande i leverantörskedjan för dagligvaruhandeln2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The worlds resources are limited, these resources include all the consumption articles that the human needs for survival. One of the core fundamentals is food. Traditionally, the food is gathered in accessible supermarkets. These supermarkets have suppliers that deliver the products to the stores. The supply chain has large impact on the climate. Previous studies have primarily focused on internal sustainability work from these supermarkets.

    This study distinguishes itself from previous ones, mainly because it focuses on reviewing the supply chain's sustainability work instead of the internal sustainability work. It is necessary to study the sustainability work of the supply chain due to the amount of harm the transportation does to the environment. There is another essential part to study when it comes to the supplier's sustainability work and that is the employees´ working conditions. Since many suppliers' workforce works in tough conditions, often due to the origin of the products, namely developing countries.

    This study has focused on three of the biggest limited companies in the Swedish food industry, ICA group ltd, Axfood Ltd and Lidl Ltd. By investigating the companies’ sustainability reports a thematic analysis has been done with themes like waste, transportation, chemicals, water, animals. packages, wages, ethics, and health. The thematic analysis can conclude that the companies emphasize the environmental dimension in the supply chain rather than the employees’ work conditions. The companies have the highest requirements when it comes to the transportations and animal husbandry.

    The study can conclude that there is an information shortage regarding the supply chains employees' work conditions. The companies are generally consistent in evaluating their previous aims in the sustainability reports. Axfood left one aim out. The study is covering a limited time and thus in many cases too short to analyze how the companies follow their own aims in the long term. The companies are, however, generally lacking in presenting the progress and evaluation of the specific aims and often withholds essential information. The result of this paper demonstrates that the companies are not taking enough responsibility for the supply chain's sustainability work.

    Regeneration and local economy: Toward an innovative urban contribution model2019In: The International Journal of Tarrah (The Designer), ISSN 2008-9538, Vol. 5, no 14, p. 100-108Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The main objective of the current study is to proceed toward the potential of innovative regeneration derived from the local economy in Odlajan (a neighborhood in the historical district of Tehran, 12th municipal). In three steps we have addressed the subject; the first step consists of the concept of urban regeneration and the characteristics of the innovative economy associated with three basic categories (people, business and place). In the next feature, we have examined the objections of that the current status of the selected site; the unsustainable development, reduction of the sense of belonging, and un-sustainable regeneration. The third step, e have tried to define a prospect conceptual model based on innovative urban contribution including aforementioned aspects by short-term measures and long-term strategies.

    Toward a Tactical “Urbanpreneur”2019In: The International Journal of Tarrah (The Designer), ISSN 2008-9538, Vol. 5, no 14, p. 10-19Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Looking at the city in parts, the place theory can be recognized in the term of three main axes; good city form, sequential movement, and the mutual impact of every physical and social component. In the place theory the main focus is the understanding process of the cultural aspects and human characteristics of the places. Some areas experience mutual interaction between city and citizens more than others. It is evidently considerable from literature that the most successful examples toward space enhancement (or the transformation of space to place) have come from two approaches: Urban entrepreneurship (urban-preneur) and the small changes which result in big social impact; a sense of the tactical action. These two approaches, Tactical Urbanism as an effective formula for putting good ideas into practice, and “Urban-preneurs” while embed in their socio--ecological environments -cities and towns- to draw influence are about making the place (for citizens) toward a more interacting liv- able one. This report is dedicated to clarifying the question of how street city life might contribute to alternative urban futures focusing on the mentioned two approaches. To this purpose first, we describe the notions of Tactical Urbanism and Urban Entrepreneur main characteristics associated with aforementioned approaches, then the report continues with the concept of Sharing Economy and urban entrepreneurship term, which focuses on recent decades economy approaches. Next, the current scene in two selected case studies, 30Tir Street in Tehran and pedestrian street zone Rasht city in Gilan province has been investigated. As the third part, we have demonstrated a path to open a wide dispensary to some possible tactical “Urban-preneur” in selected case studies.

    Clues for Identity Formation in Contemporary Architectureof Iran: A search for the lost identity2015In: Designer Magazine, ISSN 2008-9538, no 11Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The buildings are one of the most resistant and at the same time exclusive creatures of human beings in different civilizations. In the past, the most significant impact of each society was the scale and hugeness of their buildings as a direct mirror of their power among other nations. Also theirs buildings were intelligent and practical enough to respect the nature and the user by means of implementing local achievements. The mentioned respect was not just for the nature, but it was caring about the beliefs, feelings, costumes and lifestyle of the inhabitants. Architecture in its scenario, since the commencement till now was in struggle to locate itself as the historical image of different styles and in this procedure it updates itself according to different forms, spaces, climates etc. within this frame, when we shift the lens on contemporary architecture of Iran which has got long history and background, the notion of identity becomes one of the main issues on the table. Identity could be discussed in diverse scale starting from human to the society, but when an architect tries to reflect identical phenomena in his/her design there are two contradictory orientations. Some of them are digging into the history to find clues of identity and reflect them in contemporary design but the other group has got too much radical view which means neglecting of classical architecture and looking for identity in more prospective perspective. The notion of identity and culture could alter from architect to architect, building to building and form to form. This article tries to give some clues and base points in order to bring two mentioned radical perspectives to a kind of mid-point which could possibly be a guideline for the cure of contemporary architecture in Iran.

    Linking Simulation-Based LCA to Manufacturing Decision Support: An Iron Foundry Case Study2022In: Advances in Manufacturing Technology XXXV: Proceedings of the 19th International Conference on Manufacturing Research, Incorporating the 36th National Conference on Manufacturing Research, 6–8 September 2022, University of Derby, Derby, UK / [ed] Mahmoud Shafik; Keith Case, IOS Press, 2022, p. 325-333Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, an increasing number of legislations have mandated environmental impact evaluations of products from a life cycle perspective. This study applies a discrete-event simulation-based life cycle assessment to study the environmental consequences that respond to system configuration changes in production processes. The proposed method allows capturing the dynamic links in production processes, which is lacking in conventional static LCA modelling. This approach is demonstrated via a real-world case study of a Swedish foundry production line, where its environmental impacts’ hotspots are identified. These environmental consequences are further analyzed to link to the respective production decision domains for providing suggestions on potential improvements. This study demonstrates the value of combining DES and LCA for revealing the hidden environmental consequences of production processes that are difficult to uncover with traditional LCA studies. Moreover, the strengths and difficulties of the proposed method are also discussed.

    Review of simulation-based life cycle assessment in manufacturing industry2019In: Production & Manufacturing Research, ISSN 2169-3277, Vol. 7, no 1, p. 490-502Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The manufacturing industry has a duty to minimize its environmental impact, and an increasing body of legislation mandates environmental impact evaluations from a life cycle perspective to prevent burden shift. The manufacturing industry is increasing its use of computer-based simulations to optimize production processes. In recent years, several published studies have combined simulations with life cycle assessments (LCAs) to evaluate and minimize the environmental impact of production activities. Still, current knowledge of simulations conducted for LCAs is rather disjointed. This paper accordingly reviews the literature covering simulation-based LCAs of production processes. The results of the review and cross-comparison of papers are structured in terms of seven elements in line with the ISO standard definition of LCA and report the strengths and limitations of the reviewed studies. © 2019, © 2019 The Author(s).

    Undersökning och förbättringsarbete av internlogistik mellan hygienzoner 2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The degree project was carried out as a case study at the food company Semper AB at their production facility in Götene, where the company manufactures gruel, infant formula, and gluten-free mixers. The work involved examining the internal logistics between hygiene zones for the three flows Wetmix, waste and Basepowder. The company has identified that there are hygiene risks and lack of organization in these flows and that they, therefore, need to be improved. The purpose of the project was to eliminate hygiene risks in internal logistics with the help of improvement proposals. Internal logistics included transport of raw materials to the Wetmix flow and outgoing transports of waste. Furthermore, the logistics of Basepowder would also be structured. The goal was thus to produce at least one improvement proposal for each flow to create a basis for possible future implementations. Through a structured literature study, relevant methods regarding data collection and current situation analysis for the work have been identified and subsequently an in-depth reference framework has been built up.

    An analysis of the current situation was carried out to create an understanding of the current way of working in the flows. Data collection was performed using observations in the form of Genchi genbutsu/Gemba and interviews with staff relevant to the flows. The implementation of the case study consisted of clock studies, spaghetti diagrams and the value flow analysis methodology Value Stream Mapping (VSM) as well as the waste flow analysis methodology Waste Flow Mapping (WFM). To create structure in the work and ensure that the set goals have been achieved, the PDCA-method has been applied in the work. The work has only been in the first phase (Plan) as no implementation of the improvement proposals has taken place, which would otherwise have been carried out in phase Do.

    The result of the case study was that three improvement proposals together with two general improvement proposals were developed for the Wetmix flow. The general improvements include the implementation of an overhead crane in the hygiene zone between Wetmix and the buffersite, an overhead crane at the square with a pallet turner and more shifts for the warehouse staff. The first of the three proposals includes ordering raw materials in shifts to establish a more paced flow. The second proposal includes the implementation of conveyor belts that transport big bags into the hygiene zone. The third proposal is the implementation of an AGV that can handle the transport of raw materials to Wetmix. A PICK chart was used to evaluate which of the three proposals the company should prioritize, and it shows that a paced flow has the greatest effect compared to the effort required. However, the proposal for a conveyor belt is considered to have a greater effect and could advantageously be combined in the future with the proposal for a paced flow to increase the effect. The AGV proposal was currently considered not to have as great effect compared with the size of the investment required if it was only to supply raw materials to Wetmix. Further investigation into additional areas of use for an AGV is thus something that should be carried out.

    Location as a Key Factor to Develop Strategic Resource: A Study of Space, Place and Identity2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Taking into account the increasing urbanization in Europe, young people prefer bigger cities and eventually small towns face the challenge of aging and immigrant populations requiring evermore social services even as tax revenues decrease. It seems a necessity for the regional enterprises/authorities to revise their strategic vision in associated with the raising of awareness among the citizens and socio-economic stakeholders in the long-term strategies/priorities. Structuring a powerful approach toward the concept of attractiveness through a location-based assertiveness will not only be supported by the local public or community initiatives, but also through the resource-based theory to stablish new opportunities of public/private partnership in the locations. The concept community values, combining with the strategic vision of the local authority scenario would idealistically cause the raising of awareness among the citizens and socio-economic stakeholders in the scenario-based implementation of resilient of the long-term strategies/priorities; this path is capable also in a public mobilization for a sustainable collective action to sharing a purpose, a common fate in the sense of the evolution of socio-economic norms which eventually integrates the cultural, social, economic and environmental values with the “location”; this could be the platform for a model that shows location-based growth orientation aspects are in a profound interaction with what we call “place identity”. The main ambition of our paper is to look at location as a structured dynamism to support the diversification strategy of owner-managed local companies through literature-based approach to examine whether location, as a strategic resource, contributes to sustainable competitive advantage for companies. So our study contributes to the discussion of the importance of “location” as a factor for creating strategic resources that can create and/or contribute to the competitive advantage of enterprises mostly based on the regionalization strategies; this will promote the mobilization of local actors to develop the competitiveness and attractiveness of their territory, while stimulating a collaborative approach between the territories to expand their capacities. In the maturity phase the resource-based view developed to be a resource-based theory that must evolve in order to extend the maturity phase. As the resource-based view assumes that resources are heterogeneously distributed among companies, various factors [external and internal] explain how profitability can be created and maintained in the long term. We have applied an interdisciplinary grounded theory method by combining the literature-based data from studies of resource based strategies and urban discussion related to space/location; The evidence from some interviews with company leaders, owners, managers and influential representatives of various community activities and entities also helped us to run an inductive reasoning approach as a hypothetical clarification of the action(s) that recurrently determines the main apprehension of the accomplices in an applicable area.
