Le cycle de vie de la pensée stratégique des entreprises : de l’innovation au repositionnement

Vallières, Josyane January 2015 (has links)
L’objectif principal de cette recherche est de contribuer empiriquement au développement du modèle conceptuel du cycle de vie dans la pensée stratégique des entreprises développé par Dufour et Steane (2009). L’étude utilise une approche méthodologique longitudinale historique et la méthode d’étude de cas qui est caractérisée par un souci de rendre compte, selon plusieurs perspectives, de la complexité de la réalité d'une situation spécifique que l'on veut mieux comprendre. Le cas utilisé est celui de l’Auto-Neige Bombardier Limitée, une entreprise québécoise ayant un cheminement historique parsemé d’innovations importantes. Cette recherche s’appuie sur le postulat que la façon dont les gestionnaires réfléchissent et approchent la formulation et la mise en œuvre de la stratégie de leur entreprise évoluent, s’ajustent et changent avec les principaux défis auxquels ils se confrontent dans le temps. Elle démontre l’existence de différentes façons de penser et donc, l’hypothèse d’un changement d’une période à l’autre est tout à fait légitime. La présente recherche supporte le modèle dans son ensemble.

Process improvement during production ramp up : a case study of manufacturing process validation during MI09 contract at Bombardier Transportation

Taret, Benjamin January 2011 (has links)
Production ramp up corresponds to « the period between the end of the production development and the full capacity utilization ». The manufacturing process often does not work perfectly during this early time of the new product production and some adjustments are necessary to obtain full capacity utilization. In order to assess the assembly process during this period, the train manufacturer Bombardier Transportation has created an improvement process called “VPI” (which stands for “Validation du Processus Industriel” or “Validation of the manufacturing process” in English). Its purpose is to “validate the material and the documentation for every movement independently” in order to ensure quality of final product and safety of the workers. It aims at detecting and solving rapidly safety problems and deviation from the normal process. This thesis is a case study of VPI during MI09 contract (new trains for ¨Paris subway). It aims at assessing VPI framework and identifies possible causes of the delay in validation of MI09 production process. Four main MI09 production line specificities have been identified: long assembly time, low production volume, system complexity and process variability. VPI framework meets partially these production line prerequisites. VPI is a process that allows systematizing problems detection, formalizing the improvement process and managing a high number of problems with a clear view of the VPI validation. The most important drawbacks of the VPI seem to be the lack of problems detection after the initial observation, problem definition framework and root cause analysis. Four reasons could explain the delays during the realization of VPI on MI09 contract: undetected problems, normal treatment timeframe for the improvements, inadequate objectives and lack of framework to select the best solution to solve problems. VPI may be improved by including root cause analysis, better problem definition and knowledge management between contracts. However, these methods are time consuming and a prioritization of the problem should be made. FMEA (Failure Mode and Effect Analysis) methodology may help to identify the problem on which the VPI should focus on.

Molecular Phylogenetics, Systematics, and Natural History of the Flanged Bombardier Beetles (Coleoptera: Adephaga: Carabidae: Paussinae)

Moore, Wendy January 2006 (has links)
This dissertation focuses on the systematics of the Paussinae, a lineage of approximately 775 beetle species all of which produce explosive defensive chemicals and many which are obligate associates of ants (myrmecophiles). This dissertation includes six discrete studies, which taken together span the spectrum of systematic research. It includes taxonomic projects on both larval and adult paussines. It also includes phylogenetic investigations, based on DNA sequence data and morphological data, that address the evolutionary relationships among the major lineages within Paussinae as well as the evolutionary position of the Paussinae within the beetle suborder Adephaga. The inferred trees are used to study character evolution of physiological and behavioral traits of these organisms in a phylogenetic framework. This work sets the stage for a lifetime of work on this fascinating group.

Development of a user interface design tool : Bombardier Transportation HMI Designer 3.0 Concept

Ström, Per, Gidlund, Elisabet January 2012 (has links)
Denna rapport syftar till att beskriva arbetet med att utveckla en prototyp till den nya versionen av Hmi Designer utvecklat av Bombardier Transportation. Detta designerverktyg används för att skapa det grafiska användargränssnittet på ett tågs kontrolldator. En ny version av designverktyget är nödvändig eftersom resterande delar av Bombardiers programpaket för utveckling av applikationer har bytt både programmeringsmiljö och programmeringsspråk. Den prototyp som utvecklades ska visa på möjligheterna att i ett senare skede utföra ett fullskaligt projekt. Prototypen implementeras som en insticksmodul till Qt Creator, därav beskrivs tillvägagångssättet för att utveckla insticksmoduler i den programmeringsmiljön samt de fördelar och nackdelar som identifierats i och med ett byte till Qt Creator. Detta arbete har resulterat i nämnda prototyp med möjlighet att läsa in befintliga projektfiler, visa och modifiera designen samt spara projektet i det ursprungliga formatet. Arbetet har nått det förväntade resultatet, det går att bygga ett designverktyg grundat på Qt Creator med den efterfrågade funktionaliteten. Utvärderingen vid Bombardier visade att utvecklingsmöjligheterna för detta projekt är mycket goda vilket ger Bombardier mycket goda förutsättningar att inleda ett fullskaligt projekt. / This report aims to describe the process of developing a prototype for the new version of Hmi Designer developed by Bombardier Transportation. This designer tool is used to create the graphical user interface on a train control computer. A new version of the design tool is necessary because the remaining part of Bombardier's suite of application development has changed both the programming environment and programming language.The prototype developed should illustrate the possibilities at a later stage, performing a full-scale project. The prototype is implemented as a plugin in Qt Creator, hence the described approach for developing plugins in the programming environment and the advantages and disadvantages that are given, with a switch to Qt Creator.This work has resulted in the prototype with the capability to load existing project files, view and modify the design and save the project in its native format. The work has reached the expected result; it is possible to build a design tool based on Qt Creator with the requested functionality. The evaluation at Bombardier showed that the prospect of this project is very positive which gives Bombardier excellent opportunities to launch a full scale project.

Development of software for MALTE, a system for automated testing of line current supervision andinterference monitoring devices

Zeltner Wolff, Johannes January 2015 (has links)
The aim of the project is to develop software to automatically test line current supervision and interference monitoring devices for Bombardier trains. The software, called MALTE, it to replace the manual testing done by an engineer, thereby freeing up the tester to do other tasks, and increasing the test rigorousness. The test software, written in LabView, was developed in tandem with a hardware rack, with interfaces to the train hardware enabling communication between the two, to set test conditions and simulate the environment encountered by the hardware when on the train. When completed, MALTE was found to be an order of magnitude faster than a test engineer performing the tests, meaning a large save in time and cost for the engineering team.

Implementing data analysis and visualization into a SOA based architecture for AddTrack Enterprise 4G

Laurell, Björn Laurell January 2012 (has links)
Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an architectural approach designed to provide scalable, resuable, and extensible software by dividing the software into self-contained services. Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) is an approach for data management that supports resolving ad hoc and complex multidimensional analytical queries. In this thesis, a case study for adapting these two technologies to an existing off-board train diagnostics system, called AddTrackEnterprise, is presented. The thesis also present a proposal for how to visualize the data contained in this system, such that it accommodates the OLAP approach. The thesis outlines the study of the subject matter and of the implementation of software for AddTrack based on these approaches.

License Management for EBITool

Krznaric, Anton January 2013 (has links)
This degree project deals with license management for EBITool. It´s about providing protection and monitoring for a Java Application via a license server, and the construction of it. An analysis that discusses the approach and other possible courses of action is also included. Additionally, it covers a discussion of a prototype implementation of the model solution from the analysis. The prototype is a Java EE application that deploys to JBoss AS7. It´s developed using the JBoss Developer Studio 5.0.0, an Eclipse IDE with JBoss Tools preinstalled. It exposes web services to Java Applications through SOAP via JAX-WS. Using Hibernate, the web service Enterprise Java Beans get access to a PostgreSQL 9.1 database via entity classes mapped to the database through the Java Persistence API.

Statut des travailleurs au sein de l’entreprise et protections juridiques en matière de mise à pied au Québec : une comparaison des secteurs syndiqués et non syndiqués chez le Centre de finition Laurent Beaudoin de Bombardier

Wasselin, Mélanie 05 1900 (has links)
Les entreprises cherchent sans cesse à accroître leur flexibilité afin de s’ajuster aux variations imprévisibles du marché. Or, cette recherche a une propension à générer des restructurations internes et externes, et par le fait même, à répartir la main d’œuvre au cœur ou à la périphérie des entreprises. Les travailleurs permanents et qualifiés se retrouvent plus souvent au cœur de celles-ci et seraient généralement syndiqués. Par comparaison, les travailleurs temporaires qualifiés ou non, issus de la sous-traitance, se situent plus en périphérie, et seraient moins souvent syndiqués. De plus, cette recherche de flexibilité accroît le recours aux mises à pied pour des motifs économiques. Même si le droit du travail autorise les employeurs à recourir aux mises à pied, il protège aussi les travailleurs à l’aide de deux sources distinctes de protection. La première, de nature législative, s’applique en matière de rapport individuel de travail et dicte les normes protectrices minimales des travailleurs. La seconde, de nature conventionnelle, concerne les rapports collectifs de travail. En matière de mise à pied, le droit du travail aurait-il tendance à puiser dans les conventions collectives sa fonction protectrice à l’égard des travailleurs ? La loi aurait-elle plutôt comme effet de faciliter l’activité économique et la recherche de flexibilité des entreprises ? Les travailleurs syndiqués au cœur seraient alors avantagés par rapport aux travailleurs non syndiqués de la périphérie. Ce mémoire tente de répondre à la question de recherche suivante : Quelle est la protection offerte par le droit du travail québécois en matière de mise à pied selon le statut (cœur ou périphérie) des travailleurs et selon qu’ils soient syndiqués ou non ? Une analyse qualitative d’un établissement de Bombardier, le Centre de finition Laurent Beaudoin (CFLB), et de deux de ses sous-traitants, un non spécialisé, syndiqué, Aramark Québec Inc, et un autre spécialisé et non syndiqué, Elisen Technologies Inc, permettra de répondre à cette question. L’étude des conventions collectives des travailleurs du CFLB et d’Aramark, basée sur les années 2009 à 2019, combinée à une recherche des offres d’emplois du CFLB au cours des quatre derniers mois de l’année 2019, nous permettra d’abord de définir quels sont les travailleurs syndiqués et non syndiqués œuvrant au CFLB, ainsi que de les situer au cœur ou à la périphérie du CFLB. Par la suite, les protections issues des conventions collectives en matière de mise à pied sont comparées avec celles issues de la législation, selon le statut cœur-périphérie que détiennent les travailleurs œuvrant au CFLB. Dans un premier temps, ce mémoire cherche donc à comparer les protections en matière de mise à pied des travailleurs du cœur du CFLB, avec celles des travailleurs situés à la périphérie du CFLB afin de savoir si un écart peut être constaté entre le statut (cœur-périphérie) des travailleurs. Dans un second temps, il mesure les protections en matière de mise à pied entre les travailleurs syndiqués et non syndiqués, dans l’intention d’y voir une distinction en termes d’avantages. Finalement, ce mémoire s’interroge sur la différence possible entre les recours utilisés par les travailleurs, dérivant de la loi ou des conventions collectives. Les résultats démontrent que les protections en matière de mise à pied sont plus généreuses pour les travailleurs du cœur, plutôt que pour les travailleurs situés en périphérie seulement en présence du statut de syndicalisation. Les travailleurs syndiqués ont aussi de meilleures protections que les travailleurs non syndiqués. Le fait que les recours en matière de mise à pied, menés par la loi ou la convention collective, présenteraient une différence n’a pas pu être démontré en raison de l’inexistence de l’emploi de ces recours par les travailleurs du CFLB, ce qui montre également la limite de notre recherche quant au fait d’étudier un seul établissement. / Companies are continuously seeking to increase their flexibility to adjust to unpredictable market changes. However, this quest is generating both internal and external restructuring and is likely to lead to the distribution of the workforce according to the core-periphery continuum. Permanent and skilled workers are more often found at “core” positions inside companies and would generally be unionized. On the contrary, skilled or unskilled temporary workers, coming from subcontractors, are more often found at a peripherical position and would be less often unionized. Also, this quest of flexibility increases the use of temporary layoffs for economic reasons, if required by the situation. Even if labour law allows employers to rely on temporary layoffs, it also protects workers through two distinct sources of protection. The first, which is a legislative matter, applies to the individual employment relationship and dictates the minimum protective standards for workers. The second, which is more like a convention, concerns collective labour relations. Concerning temporary layoffs, does labour law tend to draw workers protection from collective agreements? Would the law tend to facilitate economic growth and companies seek for flexibility? Would unionized workers at the core then have an advantage over non-unionized workers at the periphery? This paper aims to answer to the following research question: what protection the Quebec labour law can provide concerning temporary layoffs to core or non-core workers, depending if they are unionized or not? A qualitative analysis of a Bombarbier plant (Centre de finition Laurent Beaudoin CFLB) and of two of its subcontractors, one non-specialized, unionized, Aramark Quebec Inc, and the other one specialized, non-uniozed, Elisan Technologies Inc., will help answer this question. A study of the 2009-2019 collective agreements of CFLB and Aramark and an analysis of the CFLB job offers in the last four months of 2019, will enable us to understand who are the unionized and non-unionized workers working for CFLB, and to categorize them in the core or peripherical CFLB continuum. Then, we will compare temporary lay-offs protections coming for collective agreements to the protections in the law, keeping in mind the core-periphery levels. This paper is seeking to compare temporary layoffs protections between core CFLB workers and ‘peripherized’ CFLB workers in order to understand if there is a protection gap between those workers. Then, we will try to assess the differences between unionized and non-unionized workers concerning temporary layoffs: is there any difference between the two in term of protection? We will also examine the possible difference of legal remedy usable by workers depending whether it comes from a collective agreement or from the law. The results show a core worker is more protected in case of a temporary layoff than a ‘peripherized’ worker only if the core worker is unionized. Unionized workers also have a better level of protection than non-unionized workers. The presence of a difference in the conclusion of a legal remedy drawed on collective agreements or Quebec labour law is still unclear. Indeed, no legal remedy have been initiated by CFLB workers. This also shows the limitation of our research work in studying a single company (CFLB).
