This paper studies the design of process-innovation incentives in supplier networks. A real-life case study from the boat-building industry is presented to illustrate the importance of explicitly encouraging suppliers to continuous improvement. Motivated by the case study, we construct a game theory model trying to capture the possible conflicting interests(More)
This paper presents a risk index model that can be used for assessing the safety effect of countermeasures. The model estimates risk in a multiplicative way, which makes it possible to analyze the impact of different factors separately. Expert judgments are incorporated through a Bayesian error model. The variance of the risk estimate is determined by(More)
This thesis explores the applicability of game theory to the modelling of enterprise networks. Although these networks have traditionally been studied by the qualitative methods of industrial management, the utilisation of game theory seems to provide new tools and solution concepts for studying them. The thesis reviews earlier game theoretic studies on(More)

The publication introduces a multidisciplinary approach to operational decision making (operation and maintenance) applied in the Finnish pulp and paper industry. The purpose of the approach is to produce knowledge and methods that support each other and which can be used to improve the support for operational decision making in the declared scope. At the(More)
– The paper describes a probabilistic method for transmission grid security evaluation. The most efficient contributions to the system reliability can be found with the probabilistic methods. The method uses event and fault trees and combines them with power system dynamic simulations. Event trees model the substation protection and trip operations after(More)
