    Distribution Channel Structure and Integration: Contingency variables in the sawmill industry2010In: / [ed] Arlbjörn, 2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose; The purpose of this paper is to identify and characterize structures and integration levels of distribution channels in the sawmill industry, as well as to discuss these characteristics and their association with different contingency variables.

    Design / methodology / approach; Multiple case study

    Findings: There is a variety of distribution channel structures and levels of integration in the sawmill industry: one extreme is small, one-unit firms delivering ex-works to export agents with unintegrated distribution channel processes and the other extreme is large, multi-unit firms with network flow structures delivering from their own stock on a market to clients with integrated distribution channel processes By studying these contingency variables, a pattern of sawmill categories emerges; the first category, in which production is focused, are the small single sawmills (with a cost leadership or focus strategy) which aim to deliver their products to independent actors ex-works; the sawmills which comply to this category do not consider logistics or IT as important, neither do they take integration into consideration. The second category consists of larger multi-unit sawmills with a downstream focus, which strive to integrate and control the distribution channel (in the most extreme cases acquire strategic actors) in order to achieve stable presence on strategic markets. Sawmills included in this category regard logistics and IT as important.

    Research limitations / implications;

    This research is an exploratory pre-study based on five case studies implicating a limited possibility to draw general conclusions.

    Practical implications:

    This paper illustrates situations in which the distribution channel requires to be focused to higher degree which is important for strategic decisions for the actors in the industry.

    What is original/value of paper:

    This paper illustrates the variety of channel structures and integration levels within a single industry, and connects the variation with a number of contingency variables.

    Proposing a Research Agenda for Swedish Sawmill Distribution Channel Challenges2010In: Presented at SSFE 2010 / [ed] Bo Jellesmark Thorsen, 2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose; The purpose of this study is to identify distribution channel research needs given the variety of distribution channel challenges among Swedish sawmill companies.

    Design / methodology / approach; Explorative case study research

    Findings: The paper proposes a typology of sawmill distribution channel challenges, as well as aligns research needs with distribution channel type. The typology is based on i) number of sawmill units within the firm, in combination with ii) distribution channel heterogeneity. Significant management decisions and research needs are identified for the different types.

    Research limitations / implications; This research makes tentative statements regarding typology of sawmill distribution channel challenges and potential research needs in the Swedish sawmill industry with regards to the respective typology. However, further research is needed in order to validate these results.

    What is original/value of paper: This paper focus on the sawmill industry distribution channels, which is a neglected but important area for sawmill’s competitive advantage. The paper also contributes to research by applying contingency theory and typology as an approach to deal with the variety of sawmills distribution channel challenges.

    Keywords; Typology, distribution channel challenges, research needs, and Swedish sawmill industry

    Erfarenheter av logistik- och montageprocessen vid byggandet av höga flerbostadshus med trästomme: Del 2 : Faktorer som påverkat tidseffektiviteten vid projekt Limologen, Växjö 20072008Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Föreliggande rapport är den andra av tre avrapporteringar kring erfarenheter av att bygga höga flerbostadshus med trästomme. Forskningsprojektet har sin empiriska bas i Midroc´s bygge av fyra åttavåningars hus för bostadsrätter vid Trummens strand i Växjö.

    Data samlades in under 2007 och analys och diskussion är gjord på detta material. De problem och förbättringsbehov som identifierats hänför sig alltså till det system som användes under 2007 och som i huvudsak kommer att användas för de efterföljande byggnaderna i kvarteret Limnologen. Erfarenheterna som gjorts under byggtiden har lett till att leverantören för kommande byggprojekt vidareutvecklat byggsystemet främst avseende en högre prefabriceringsnivå och ett effektivare och flexiblare system för väderskydd och traverslyft.

    Projektet är en del av insatser från Nationella Träbyggstrategin och Centrum för Byggande och Boende med Trä (CBBT) för att öka kunskapen om modernt stort träbyggande.

    Projektet har finansierats av Nationella Träbyggstrategin, CBBT, Växjö universitet och SP Trätek.

    Byggandet av flervåningshus i trä: Ett samverkansprojekt inom Nationella träbyggnadsstrategins fortbildningsprogram2008Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This report is a summary and analysis of the knowledge gained from the activities carried out 2006 – 2008 within “Nationella träbyggnadsstrategins fortbildningsprogram”. Expert knowledge and results are also included from the many corresponding R&D programs, aimed to support and develop timber housing construction, which was run parallel to “Nationella träbyggnadsstrategin”

    “Fortbildningsprogrammet” – the program for further education of actors in the housing industry was a cooperative effort between: Luleå university of technology, Vaxjö university, Dalarna university and the institute SP Trätek.

    The chapters of the report are written by different authors from the universities and institute. The report describes:

    The building technique and competence development that have taken place within the Swedish timber housing industry (viewed in a wide context).

    • Three types of structural systems exist on the market today (column-beam systems, massive wood elements and timber frame systems). These are combined and erected using three different types of construction methods (on-site construction, prefabricated elements and prefabricated volume elements).

    • During the program, seminars, workshops and study tours were attended by approximately 750 people representing construction clients, architects, designers and construction companies. In depth case results are presented and analysed from 15 different building projects that give valuable information for other projects and it is also estimated that more than 10 other projects was initiated as an effect of the program.

    As an important by-effect, it is noted that the undertaking and existence of the program gave additional support to the development of research groups with focus on timber housing construction.

    In-depth case descriptions of timber house projects with a focus on those in Växjö, Falun och Skellefteå.

    • Detailed descriptions and analyses regarding: Design aspects, architectural limitations, descriptions of technical solutions for adequate fire, acoustics and horizontal stabilising. Details for several structural elements are presented and experience and further development of the logistics and the montage employed are analysed.

    Scientifically based systems descriptions of industrialised timber housing.

    • A characterisation of the building technique is presented.

    • A description and analysis of the growth and potential of the multi-storey industrialised housing industry is given.

    • Analysis of different actor’s roles, business models including a definition of industrialised housing (the process) is displayed.

    The report concludes with guidance instructions aimed for all actors involved in a housing project.
