    Product costing in ten Swedish manufacturing companies1996In: International Journal of Production Economics, ISSN 0925-5273, E-ISSN 1873-7579, Vol. 46, p. 441-457Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents the main results from case studies in 10 Swedish manufacturing companies concerning their product costing. The main purpose of the study is to find out what models of product costing the companies use, what allocation bases are applied. Several questions have been asked to the companies: What is the purpose of the product costing? Is a special product costing used for inventory valuation? Is full costing or variable costing used? How are depreciation costs and cost of capital treated? Is some sort of activity-based costing used? If so, which are the cost drivers? The study is a case analysis, no questionnaires are used. The study presents arguments that a separation of product costing in ''Activity-Based Costing'' or ''traditional costing'' is not possible, but also that more ''ABC-thinking'' is necessary.

    Challenges and propositions for research in quality management2018In: International Journal of Production Economics, ISSN 0925-5273, E-ISSN 1873-7579, Vol. 199, p. 125-137Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    From its inception, the field of quality management (QM) has been characterised by practice-driven development. Although QM has reached maturity as a field of research based on empirical enquiry, its practitioners still struggle to adapt QM implementations to reap their benefits. This study aims to identify their challenges to better understand how contemporary QM research addresses them. We propose approaches to bridge the potential relevance gaps between research and practice. A Delphi study of QM practitioners in Swedish private and public organisations, several of which operate globally, generated 49 challenges. An exploratory factor analysis was performed to cluster these challenges into themes, and the literature was reviewed to investigate how each theme has been addressed in QM research. The empirical investigation identified three themes related to future QM challenges—organisations’ adaptability to rapid changes in the business environment, quality as a strategic concern for business owners, and managerial ownership of quality. By analysing these challenges, six propositions for future research were proposed to reduce potential relevance gaps. Future research should focus on how to make QM a strategic concern for owners, and explore how it can contribute to organisational ambidexterity and adaptability. Research should also determine how context influences the way QM is applied, and investigate how it can improve organisational learning and innovation. Finally, research should indicate how top managers can adopt the responsibilities of quality managers, and explore the ways the principal values of QM can be better integrated into organisations.

    A note on the survey of project evaluation techniques in major corporations1998In: International Journal of Production Economics, ISSN 0925-5273, E-ISSN 1873-7579, Vol. 54, no 2, p. 207-213Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Much of what we know about the capital budgeting routines of major corporations derives from postal surveys sent to head offices. This article compares the results gained from such surveys with those obtained from analyses of investment manuals, and interviews with corporate managers in charge of the capital budgeting routines of their groups. The analyses suggest that the value of postal surveys would be substantially improved if information was also collected on to whom and to which parts of the organization an administrative routine is applicable, and on whether it is articulated in a written and approved document; where the routine is applied, by whom, and how strictly.
