Resursbehov i materialflödessystem med varierande integrationsnivåer. En studie av lastmoduler i integrerade transportsystem
Report, 1988

This was a work carried out by the authors in parallel with the at this period of time ongoing work at the Department of Transportation and at the Volvo Automobile Company’s assembly plant in Uddevalla. In this case were modularization and synchronization of large parts in focus (as this was a sort of common denominator for our practical and theoretical development at the Department of Transportation).

A comment: Publishing reports, especially consumer reports, was the praxis during this (early) period of time at Chalmers University of Technology, as well as probably at some other universities. This means that frequent and vast academic publication by means of e.g. conference papers and refereed contributions to scientific journals was almost unheard of. At least so for some of the applied science disciplines. However, today are the situation indeed very different (i.e. earlier was the publication in many respects focused on trying to satisfy the executive administrator the research foundation in question etc.).
