Dissertations and theses
Because research and development are decisive factors for our future success, we consider it important that the dissertations and theses are closely linked to our business, to our customer projects and to our application development. For this reason, we also make a serious commitment to provide support for the work and put significant demands on our mentors, who help to ensure that the results of the work are successful. The students often remain in contact with us and may end up being employed by Technia.
We have provided support for a number of dissertations, including:
- Quality Assurance Through Requirements Engineering
The Requirement Engineering process is the most difficult and error-prone phase in the life cycle of complex products. Requirements Engineering is also the most important factor influencing product quality. This master thesis was conducted at Ericsson Mobile Platforms AB (EMP) in Lund, Sweden. In addition to the case study, Requirements Engineering interviews were conducted with experts from within industry and the academic world. This master thesis identified improvement areas for the EMP Requirements Engineering process, and then recommended an action plan for EMP. In addition to this, a Technia approach to Requirements Engineering was also developed based upon some of the suggested improvements brought forth in this master thesis.
- Product Data Management Information in PDA browsers
According to Technia, the use of PDA’s within the industry increases and such applications related to PDM (Product Data Management) business are expected to be a desire from Technia customers in the near future. The Master project has included an investigation of appropriate services based on interviews with Technia customers. The investigation lead to a conceptual design including guidelines for interaction and a graphical user interface for information and services, along with a brief reflection on relevant technologies and system architecture.
- Product data exchange using STEP
An investigation of the possibilities and deficiencies of the new ISO standard for the exchange of product data (STEP).
- Simulated production environments
A test of how the Matrix PDM system functions under different loads. This was achieved by using simulated loads and by investigating the commercial testing tools which can be used to produce these loads.
- Distributed Java applications in PDM systems
An investigation into the possibility of implementing distributed applications using different Java technologies such as J2EE (especially EJB), Jini and Jiro, and into how these can be used in PDM systems such as eMatrix.
- Collaborative product design environments - Processes and tools
This master's thesis describes the requirement for and the technical possibilities involved in collaborative design. The work focused on communicating geometrical information to partners during the early stages of the design process.
- Transferring product structure in electronic industry
A study into the possibilities of using XML when transferring information between different systems. A review of the conversion of PDM product structures in XML format into other formats such as PDF and HTML. The work also involved studying methods for filtering information which could be used when expanding product structures in eMatrix.
- eMatrix in a secure environment
An evaluation of the technologies and products needed for a secure eMatrix system environment on the basis of a growing requirement for information security and accessibility via the Internet.
