    Persistent piracy: maritime violence and state-formation in global historical perspective2014Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Warfare and legitimate violence have long been seen as key elements in state formation. Persistent Piracy brings into the picture the long missing component of maritime violence – and shows it to be of vital importance to the formation and, on occasion, disintegration, of states. Spanning from the Caribbean to East Asia and covering almost 3,000 years of history, from Classical Antiquity to the eve of the twenty-first century, the book is an important contribution to the history of state formation as well as the history of violence at sea. The book has contributions by leading authorities in the field of piracy studies and history more generally: Philip de Souza, Neil Price, Wolfgang Kaiser, Guillame Calafat, James K. Chin, Robert J. Antony, David J. Starkey, Matthew McCarthy, James Francis Warren and Stig Jarle Hansen.

    Sjövägen till Sverige: från 1500-talet till våra dagar2016Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    För första gången tar Sveriges främsta maritima forskare ett helhetsgrepp på det maritima området Sverige och Norden. Sjövägen till Sverige lyfter fram kunskapen om havets centrala roll i Sveriges samtid och historia. Det handlar om de långa historiska linjerna, från Gustav Vasas tid till idag. Bokens första del ger en bred introduktion till svenska sjökrig och örlogsflottans historia, utrikeshandel och sjöfart, skeppsvarvens historia, fiske och passagerarsjöfart. Den andra delen innehåller mer avgränsade utblickar. Här behandlas ämnensom sjömanstatueringar, hummerfiske, det unika svenska intressetför fritidsbåtar mm. I stort som smått visar perspektiven på hur viktigt havet varit för både nationen och dess människor. Att detta förhållande behöver framhållas i en egen bok förklaras kanske av att havet är ständigt närvarande och ändå lätt glöms bort. Inte minst gäller det havets och sjöfartens betydelse i den svenskahistorieberättelsen.

    E-learning Readiness and Absorptive Capacity in the Manufacturing Industry2014In: International Journal of Advanced Corporate Learning, ISSN 1867-5565, E-ISSN 1867-5565, Vol. 7, no 3, p. 33-40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The manufacturing industry constantly strive to develop the competencies of their expert production engineers in order to achieve and maintain a competitive advantage. Research shows that the absorptive capacity of a firm is central in order to reach such a goal. The absorptive capacity is the firm´s ability to recognize the value of new external information, assimilate it, and apply it to commercial ends, and thereby exploit the conditions for innovation. In this paper the concept of absorptive capacity is used as a lens for analyzing managerial rationales for engaging in technology enhanced competence development projects. Through interviews with key informants in 15 manufacturing firms we study the capabilities and readiness that organizations need for participation in e-learning initiatives. We present a framework of readiness for technology enhanced competence development comprised of the following interrelated constructs; awareness, e-learning maturity, dynamic capability and co-creativity. Results show a broad variation of levels within the constructs among the firms. Notable is the low level of e-learning maturity and dynamic capability. We argue that e-learning maturity is dependent on all four constructs.

    Work-Integrated Learning and Co-creation of Knowledge: Design of collaborative technology enhanced learning activities2014In: Proceedings of the 37th Information Systems Research Seminar in Scandinavia (IRIS 37) / [ed] Ahmad Ghazawneh, Jacob Nørbjerg and Jan Pries-Heje, Ringsted, 2014, p. 1-15Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we aim to understand management’s perceptions of knowledge and competence development to inform the design of technology enhanced learning activities integrated in the workplace. Work-integrated learning can be viewed with the university lens on studies of formal education integrated in the workplace setting, but here we rather emphasize the conditions of the workplace as implications for design of successful e-learning initiatives. We conducted interviews with 15 manufacturing industries in Sweden and used qualitative content analysis approach to interpret the text data. Results show that companies describe a rich variation of work-integrated learning activities, but the step towards external collaboration with academia for co-production of knowledge is marginal. Also, broad-minded work for innovations is limited. This imply the need for well-planned design of richer collaborative acitivites between academia and organizations through use of media technology to encourage competence development.

    Understanding the complex needs of automotive training at final assembly lines2014In: Applied Ergonomics, ISSN 0003-6870, E-ISSN 1872-9126, Vol. 46, p. 144-157Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Automobile final assembly operators must be highly skilled to succeed in a low automation environment where multiple variants must be assembled in quick succession. This paper presents formal user studies conducted at OPEL and VOLVO Group to identify assembly training needs and a subset of requirements; and to explore potential features of a hypothetical game-based virtual training system. Stakeholder analysis, timeline analysis, link analysis, Hierarchical Task Analysis and thematic content analysis were used to analyse the results of interviews with various stakeholders (17 and 28 participants at OPEL and VOLVO, respectively). The results show that there is a strong case for the implementation of virtual training for assembly tasks. However, it was also revealed that stakeholders would prefer to use a virtual training to complement, rather than replace, training on pre-series vehicles.

    Chests, Tubs and Lots of Tea the European Market for Chinese Tea and the Swedish East India Company, c. 1730-17602015In: Goods from the East, 1600–1800: Trading Eurasia / [ed] Maxine Berg, Felicia Gottmann, Hanna Hodacs, Chris Nierstrasz, Palgrave Macmillan, 2015, p. 277-293Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    More than 1,100 tons of tea were put up for sale in Gothenburg in August 1754. It was the largest quantity sold at a Swedish East India Company (SEIC) auction before the Seven Years’ War. The tea cargo was packed in 14,499 chests of various sizes, 380 tubs and more than 5,000 canisters; tea was by far the bulkiest of goods shipped to Gothenburg from Canton. All but a fifth of the tea in the 1754 shipment was the cheap black type called Bohea. The logistics of this trade involved moving these large quantities of Bohea tea from the Wuyi Mountain area in southeastern China where it was produced, to Canton, across the Indian Ocean, around the Cape of Good Hope, and to the Northwestern fringe of Europe. This would be daunting enough, but the journey did not end in Gothenburg — the headquarters of the SEIC, on the West Coast of Sweden. After the auction, the chests were loaded onto smaller ships destined for places including Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Ostend.

    Assessment based information needs in manual assembly2017In: 24TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON PRODUCTION RESEARCH (ICPR), Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA: DESTECH PUBLICATIONS, INC , 2017, p. 366-371Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    To handle the complex and flexible manufacturing of today it is vital to have well functional information systems for the operators so that they know when, what and where to assemble. The current designs of assembly work instructions differ much between companies, but also between plants within the same company. The digitalization trends and initiatives such as Industry 4.0 show the manufacturing industry the advantages to incorporate new methods and tools into their businesses. Even though manufacturing IT systems are designed to be adaptive to product and volume changes, they are still widely characterized by their rigid structures. Making large changes to manufacturing IT systems with comprehensive structures is complex and requires large amounts of resources. Therefore, it is important for the manufacturing companies to make the correct investments. In previous studies, two current state analyses have been conducted with the aim to map manufacturing engineering processes and IT systems producing assembly work instructions in a mass customization context. This paper presents results from the third part of a longitudinal study which focuses on identifying operators’ information needs in manual assembly of heavy vehicles. This third study aims to identify the information gap between the current state and the wanted state by assessing information needs at 13 assembly stations in three plants belonging to a global production network. The purpose is to identify design requirements for future assembly information systems enabling the practical use of the digitalization.

    Data and Information Handling in Assembly Information Systems: A Current State Analysis2017In: Procedia Manufacturing, E-ISSN 2351-9789, Vol. 11, p. 2099-2106Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Products become more complex as the general technology development reaches new levels. These new technologies enable manufacturing companies to offer better products with new functionalities to their customers. Complex products require adequate manufacturing systems to cope with changing product requirements. In general, manufacturing of this type of products entails complex structured and rigid IT systems. Due to the system’s complexity and comprehensive structure, it becomes challenging to optimize the information flow. There are improvement potentials in how such systems could be better structured to meet the demands in complex manufacturing situations. This is particularly true for the vehicle manufacturing industry where growth in many cases have occurred through acquisitions, resulting in increased levels of legacy IT systems. Additionally, this industry is characterized by high levels of product variety which contribute to the complexity of the manufacturing processes. In manual assembly of these products, operations are dependent on high quality assembly work instructions to cope with the complex assembly situations. This paper presents a current state analysis of data and information handling in assembly information systems at multiple production sites at a case company manufacturing heavy vehicles. On basis of a certain set of characterizing manual assembly tasks for truck, engine and transmission assembly, this work focuses on identifying what data and information that is made available to operators in terms of assembly work instructions and the importance of such data and information. This work aims to identify gaps in the information flow between manufacturing engineering and shop floor operations. © 2017 The Authors

    Enhancing Future Assembly Information Systems: Putting Theory into Practice2018In: Procedia Manufacturing, E-ISSN 2351-9789, Vol. 17, p. 491-498Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The manufacturing industry is in a changing state where technology advancements change the mindset of how manufacturing systems will function in the future. Industry 4.0 provides manufacturing companies with new methods for improved decision-making processes and dynamic process control. Despite this ambition, the manufacturing industry is far away from implementing this approach in practice. Assembly information systems will play an even more vital role enabling information transfer from product design to shop floor assembly in the future. To prepare the industry for these changes that are foreseen and for those that are yet to be discovered, a learning factory environment is vital. Such an environment is intended to support the industry during the development of assembly information systems. This paper presents an industrial demonstrator which incorporates well-known methods for improving assembly work stations with the perspective on assembly information systems. These methods are still not widely used in manual assembly intense manufacturing companies. This demonstrator illustrates how established theories can be practically used when designing future assembly information systems. The demonstrator will be used to validate functionalities and requirements for future assembly information systems.

    Challenges of handling assembly information in global manufacturing companies2019In: Journal of Manufacturing Technology Management, ISSN 1741-038X, E-ISSN 1758-7786Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    The purpose of this paper is to describe challenges the manufacturing industry is currently facing when developing future assembly information systems. More specific, this paper focuses on the handling of assembly information from manufacturing engineering to the shop floor operators.

    Design/methodology/approach

    Multiple case studies have been conducted within one case company between 2014 and 2017. To broaden the perspective, interviews with additionally 17 large and global manufacturing companies and 3 industry experts have been held. Semi-structured interviews have been the main data collection method alongside observations and web questionnaires.

    Findings

    Six focus areas have been defined which address important challenges in the manufacturing industry. For manual assembly intense manufacturing company, challenges such as IT challenges, process challenges, assembly process disturbances, information availability, technology and process control, and assembly work instructions have been identified and hinder implementation of Industry 4.0 (I4.0).

    Originality/value

    This longitudinal study provides a current state analysis of the challenges the manufacturing industry is facing when handling assembly information. Despite the vast amount of initiatives within I4.0 and digitalization, this paper argues that the manufacturing industry needs to address the six defined focus areas to become more flexible and prepared for the transition toward a digitalized manufacturing industry.

    I främmande hamn: den svenska och svensk-norska konsulstjänsten, 1700–19852015Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det svenska konsulatväsendet har en nästan 350 år gammal historia. Sedan mitten av 1600-talet har svenska konsuler placerats i viktiga hamnstäder där de bistod sjömän och köpmän. Konsulerna utgjorde en viktig del av Sveriges utrikesrepresentation. Den stora utrikespolitiken hamnade inte på deras arbetsbord. Istället tog de hand om strandsatta eller sjuka sjömän, sökte lämpliga returlaster och rapporterade hem till Stockholm om det politiska läget, potentiella marknader för svenska varor eller hälsotillståndet i hamnen där de var stationerade. Kopplingen mellan konsulatväsendet och den maritima sektorn under tiden 1700–1985 är uppenbar. Boken I främmande hamn belyser de svenska konsulernas långa historia utifrån tre perspektiv. Det första visar konsulernas ekonomiska betydelse: under 1700- och 1800-talen spelade konsuler en viktig roll för att främja svensk sjöfart och utrikeshandel, inte minst i Sydeuropa och i den atlantiska världen. Det andra lyfter fram konsulernas diplomatiska roll i områden där Sverige saknade egentlig utrikesrepresentation: i Nordafrika under 1700-talet samt i europeiska kolonier och Kina under 1800-talet. Det tredje belyses främst genom bidrag från 1800- och 1900-talen och visar hur konsuler i samarbete med Sjömanskyrkan och andra institutioner verkade för de svenska sjömännens välfärd.

    Instructor based training versus computer based training: a comparative study2007In: Journal of Educational Technology Systems, ISSN 0047-2395, E-ISSN 1541-3810, Vol. 35, no 4, p. 457-478Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article describes two studies conducted to compare assembly performance and learning rate between computer based training and traditional training of skilled assembly operators. The studies were performed with pre-series production parts from a car cockpit and they were integrated as part of the overall training activities during a new vehicle product launch. The computer based training tool used was a desktop based commercial VR tool with focus on cognitive interactive procedural learning. Both studies indicate that computer based training can replace instructor based training for this level of assembly complexity and that it has a positive effect in preparing skilled operators

    Improved Quality Output through Computer-Based Training: An Automotive Assembly Field Study2015In: Human Factors and Ergonomics in Manufacturing, ISSN 1090-8471, E-ISSN 1520-6564, Vol. 25, no 3, p. 304-318Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, two field experiments, conducted in an automotive assembly plant, evaluate how computer-based training of operational sequences and related quality information can support the assembly performance of the operators. The experiments were performed during the launch of a new vehicle. A comparison was made of learning progress and quality performance between a reference group of operators that only had regular training and a test group for which some of the regular training was replaced with individual computer-based training. Both quantitative measures of the quality output and questionnaires and observations were used to evaluate the effects of computer-based training. The results show a clear positive difference in learning progress and improvements in quality output for the test group compared with the reference group. This combined with positive attitudes expressed by the operators and their team leaders shows that this type of training is an effective way to train operators during launches of new vehicles in automotive production. © 2014 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    Training Virtually Virtual2012In: International Journal of Advanced Corporate Learning, ISSN 1867-5565, E-ISSN 1867-5565, Vol. 5, no 3, p. 29-36Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper reports from a longitudinal study of a Swedish manufacturer in the automotive industry, where a series of studies have explored the potential and limitations of computer-based training of assembly operators. The study is focusing on two supplementing sets of target variables – operators' attitudes and the quality output from operators in real production. Starting with small-scale studies where proof-of-concept for virtual training is established, the research moves on to comparative studies where different computer-based learning models are contrasted and evaluated. The research design ends with large-scale field experiments assessing the effects of computer-based training in terms of quality output. The results clearly demonstrate that computer-based training, when integrated with training of standardized work procedures, outperforms traditional methods for operator training, regardless of the content and the context of the assembly operation. The findings of the study are synthesized into a design framework for virtual training where cognitive and craftsmanship training is contrasted to the learning of product, process, sequence and finesse of assembly.

    Unimpeded Sailing: A Critical Edition of Johann Gröning's Navigatio Libera (Extended 1698 Edition)2018Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The original Latin text of Johann Gröning’s Navigatio libera has never before been translated into any modern vernacular language. Gröning’s intention was to set out the position of neutral nations (in this case the Danes and Swedes), and their right to pursue trade during the wars of the great maritime powers (particularly the English and the Dutch). It specifically sought to engage with and refute the work of Hugo Grotius while taking cognisance of the critique of Gröning’s work by Samuel Pufendorf. The text serves as a bridge between 17th-century polemical discourse surrounding the ‘free sea’versus ‘enclosed sea’ debate and later 18th-century legal literature on the rights of neutrals and the continuation of free trade in time of war.

    Neutrality in World History: Themes in World History2019Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Neutrality in World History provides a cogent synthesis of five hundred years of neutrality in global history. Author Leos Müller argues that neutrality and neutral states, such as Switzerland, Sweden and Belgium, have played an important historical role in implementing the free trade paradigm, shaping the laws of nations and humanitarianism, and serving as key global centres of trade and finance. Offering an intriguing alternative to dominant world history narratives, which hinge primarily on the international relations and policies of empires and global powers, Neutrality in World History provides students with a distinctive introduction to neutrality’s place in world history.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this article is to follow two contradictory perceptions of neutrality in the political discourses of the mid-eighteenth century. One perception drew on the philosophy of natural law and the beneficial view of trade and sociability; here neutrality was perceived as a good and moral basis for peaceful inter-state relations. The second perception derived from the mercantilist view of international trade as an alternative means of warfare; here neutrality was perceived as a shameless exploitation of warfare. It is argued that the concept of neutrality went through an important development in the period between the Seven Years’ War and the American War of Independence, and that the Danish writer Martin Hübner played an important role in this development. Hübner’s view of neutrality, drawing on both discourses, became embodied indirectly in the declaration of the First League of Armed Neutrality in 1780, composed during the American War of Independence. The League was the joint action of three neutral countries, Russia, Sweden, and Denmark, intended to stop the British harassment of neutral trade and shipping. When Sweden joined the League, it acknowledged this new concept of neutrality as part of its foreign policy.

    Sweden’s Early-Modern Neutrality: Neutral Vessels, Prize Cases and Diplomatic Actors in London in the Late Eighteenth Century2019In: Journal of Early Modern History, ISSN 1385-3783, E-ISSN 1570-0658, Vol. 23, no 5, p. 475-490Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Early modern shipping under neutral flags was an activity that required many capacities, combining practices from three different fields: commerce and shipping, diplomacy, and international law. This complexity of neutral shipping is the reason why traditional diplomatic history paid limited attention to it, despite the fact that shipping and prize cases consumed much of the attention and time of diplomats of neutral nations. The neutral agents had to be able to understand, communicate and move between all three fields. This article studies seizures of Swedish neutral vessels by British privateers and the Royal Navy between 1770 and 1800, including the years of the War of American Independence and the French Revolutionary Wars. It provides examples of how exchanges between different field actors—e.g. shipmasters, ship-owners, merchants, agents, lawyers, naval officers and diplomats—were communicated and understood from the perspective of Sweden’s representatives in London.

    Swedish merchant shipping in troubled times: The French Revolutionary Wars and Sweden’s neutrality 1793–18012016In: International Journal of Maritime History, ISSN 0843-8714, E-ISSN 2052-7756, Vol. 28, no 1, p. 147-164Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses on Swedish merchant shipping in the first decade of the French Revolutionary Wars, when Sweden, due its neutrality, expanded its trade and shipping. The article attempts to balance two contradictory views of neutral shipping: that of high risks of seizure by belligerents, and that of wartime profits. Three different perspectives are employed to demonstrate the complexity of neutral shipping business. Registers of ship documents (fribrev and Algerian sea passes) show the relatively limited impact of political events on shipping activities. Legal documents in diplomatic correspondence illustrate practically how the cases of seized ships were handled on both political and court levels. The debate in print on the case of ship Maria (the convoy affair of 1798) indicates how the issue of neutral prizes became incorporated into the political discourse on international relations and law of nations.

    Swedish Shipping in Southern Europe and Peace Treaties with North African States: An Economic Security Perspective2010In: Historical Social Research, ISSN 0172-6404, Vol. 35, no 4, p. 190-205Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Die schwedische Schifffahrt in Sudeuropa und die Friedensvertrage mit den nordafrikanischen Staaten. Eine Betrachtung aus der Perspektive okonomischer Sicherheit. In the late eighteenth century, Swedish ships frequently sailed in the Western Mediterranean. They could be found in Marseilles, Livorno, Genoa, Alicante, Sicily, Sardinia, and North Africa, as well as in Cadiz and Lisbon outside the Mediterranean. Indeed, the Mediterranean was an area of great importance for Swedish shipping. How was it possible that Sweden a small country in northern periphery of Europe could play such a prominent role in carrying trade in Southern Europe? There are a number of plausible explanations but an especially significant factor was the fact that Sweden had peace treaties with North African states. The treaties improved the security of Swedish-flagged vessels, reducing their protection and operation costs, insurance premiums, etc. It was economically reasonable for foreigners to employ Swedish carriers. The topic of this essay is this connection between the establishment of peace relations between Sweden and North African states and the success of the Swedish carrying business in Southern Europe. The issue is approached from the protection-cost perspective (institutional economics) and related to the different concepts of security: state security, economic security and in a certain sense also human security.
