• The changing role of shop-floor operators in zero defect manufacturing 

      Lodgaard, Eirin Anita; Powell, Daryl John (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      In the journey towards zero defect manufacturing, digital technologies aiming to improve different aspects of production and quality control will be of high importance. This will not replace existing management approaches ...
    • The critical role of sensei in developing lean leaders 

      Zanchi, Matteo; Gaiardelli, Paolo; Powell, Daryl John (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      The aim of this paper is to illustrate how lean training initiatives developed through the intervention and support of a sensei can contribute to the development of lean leadership traits in team managers. The study is ...
    • Depth profiling at a steel-aluminum interface using slow-flow direct current glow discharge mass spectrometry 

      Paudel, Gagan; Langelandsvik, Geir; Khromov, Sergey; Arbo, Siri Marthe; Westermann, Ida; Roven, Hans Jørgen; Di Sabatino Lundberg, Marisa (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Direct current glow discharge mass spectrometry (dc-GDMS), which relies on sector field mass analyzers, is not commonly used for depth profiling applications because of its slow data acquisition. Nevertheless, dc-GDMS has ...
    • Digitally enhanced quality management for Zero-Defect Manufacturing 

      Powell, Daryl John; Eleftheriadis, Ragnhild Johnsen; Myklebust, Odd (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Though the idea of Zero Defect Manufacturing is not new, it remains a disruptive concept that is able to entirely reshape the manufacturing ideology. Existing literature suggests that Zero Defect Manufacturing can be ...
    • Human-Robot Collaboration: Safety by Design 

      Degeorges, Théo; Sziebig, Gabor (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      High payload industrial robots, unlike collaborative robots are not designed to work together with humans. Collaboration can only happen in situations, where the human and robot is separated with a distance, which allows ...
    • Mesh-based tool path calculations for tubular joints 

      Lind, Morten; Ystgaard, Pål (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Manufacturing of large steel tube structures is faced with excessive welding, fit-up and rework times in tube joints, due to various types of deviation from nominal shape of the tubes. This article presents a procedure and ...
    • On the strength-ductility trade-off in thin blast-loaded steel plates with and without initial defects – An experimental study 

      Elveli, Benjamin Stavnar; Iddberg, Mads Bakken; Børvik, Tore; Aune, Vegard (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022)
      An increase in material strength is commonly associated with better protection in blast-resistant design. However, higher material strength comes at the cost of reduced ductility, and it is still not clear how this trade-off ...
    • Polarization image laser line extraction methods for reflective metal surfaces 

      Marco Rider, Jaime; Cibicik, Andrej; Egeland, Olav (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022)
      In this work, we propose a novel pipeline method for laser line extraction from images with a polarization image sensor. The proposed method is specially developed for strong laser beam reflections from metal surfaces. For ...
    • Quick-Scan – Towards a Strategy for Responsive and Resilient Value Chains 

      Powell, Daryl John; Lodgaard, Eirin Anita; Mogos, Flavia Maria (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      To remain competitive in today’s increasingly dynamic and complex environments, manufacturing enterprises must build resilience to respond to changes quickly. As such, lean production has provided firms with an alternative ...
    • Rethinking Value – A means to an end for the whispering game 

      Reke, Eivind; Powell, Daryl John (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Lean production. It is one of the most misunderstood business concepts of our time. Since the 1990s, it has been mystically reduced from an organization-wide concept to a set of principles and best practices for manufacturing ...
    • A Review on Laser-Assisted Joining of Aluminium Alloys to Other Metals 

      Bunaziv, Ivan; Akselsen, Odd Magne; Ren, Xiaobo; Nyhus, Bård; Eriksson, Magnus Carl Fredrik; Gulbrandsen-Dahl, Sverre (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Modern industry requires different advanced metallic alloys with specific properties since conventional steels cannot cover all requirements. Aluminium alloys are becoming more popular, due to their low weight, high corrosion ...
    • Robotic weld groove scanning for large tubular T-joints using a line laser sensor 

      Cibicik, Andrej; Njaastad, Eirik B; Tingelstad, Lars; Egeland, Olav (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022)
      This paper presents a novel procedure for robotic scanning of weld grooves in large tubular T-joints. The procedure is designed to record the discrete weld groove scans using a commercially available line laser scanner ...
