    A Historical Analysis of the Evolution of Dominant Industrial Development Approaches in the Age of Pahlavi in Iran

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Hosseini, Siavash (Author) ; Souzanchi Kashani, Ebrahim (Supervisor)
    Our country in no measure is considered as an industrial one, despite its chain of small, medium and large industries. The vague, general “developing” term might be the best term to assign to economic-industrial condition of our country. We have a fairly limited number of big industrial firms (BIF) which could continue operation without state’s supports in a world BIFs are considered as the key indices in industrial development. The question comes to mind with reading what came above is this study’s main question, “What went wrong?”. This study follows the historical approach to the question through a comprehensive case study. Historical case-study thus is our main research approach here....

    Formulating the Strategy of Technology Development for Tafton oven System

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Khanalipur, Esmaeel (Author) ; Kermanshah, Ali (Supervisor) ; Sayyedain Ardebili, Mahdi (Co-Advisor)
    Abundant lesions caused by many factors such as bread baking process, this is due to the heavy volume of liquidity in each year is wasted. Serious approach to the problem has not been provided. Thus the direction of a group of officials is to the replacement of voluminous bread instead of traditional bread. The problem of this approach is indeed erasing and eliminates the traditional bread basket of the consumer. The voluminous bread is a westerner product and thus, over time, in your own cooking technology is quite advanced. However, traditional bread product is completely Iranian and ancient and unfortunately, for various reasons, including the cost of bread, artisans desire to capitalize... 

    What happened to complex product systems literature over the last two decades: progresses so far and path ahead

    , Article Technology Analysis and Strategic Management ; Volume 30, Issue 8 , 2018 , Pages 948-966 ; 09537325 (ISSN) Safdari Ranjbar, M ; Park, T. Y ; Kiamehr, M ; Sharif University of Technology

    Complex product systems (CoPS) industries largely contribute to industrial development, economic growth and creation of national wealth in both developed and developing economies. CoPS also show a number of specific characteristics as a distinctive category of industrial products in comparison with mass-produced consumer goods. These aspects have attracted the attention of scholars to study CoPS over the last two decades, resulting in a fairly extensive body of literature on the subject. However, there is a further need to connect research findings in this area, to illustrate a macro view of the development in the field, explore common themes, and identify possible paths into the future.... 

    Designing a Model to Implement Lean Management System in Iran Cement Industry. The Case of Kangan Cement Plant

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Shahidpour, Amin (Author) ; Houshmand, Mahmoud (Supervisor)
    Cement as a major industrial product plays an important role in the growth and development of countries. However, the economic condition in Iran has led to a decline of the production of this strategic product in recent years. At the moment, most of cement factories are faced with overproduction and inefficiency due to high production cost, broken financial situations, high energy cost, wages and overhead cost that have led to a serious crisis in cement industry. Scientific research must be carried out to find solutions to the present critical situation in the cement industry. The application of Lean Management System leads to a sustainable development of cement industry.In this study, a... 

    (Identifying Factors Influencing Industrial Programs Delay Case Study (South Pars Phase 17 & 18 Development

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Turkan, Masoud (Author) ; Haji Yakhchali, Siamak (Supervisor)
    Industrial programs are known as engine of development plans in Iran. These types of programs also known as mega projects that have multi dimension nature of the project. In fulfillment of doing mega project, consideration on many dimensions as several engineering process, complex project management issues, social responsibilities, cultural issues, and many other affecting dimensions should be done.As a point of view in successful project, the management (HAROLD KERZNER, 2006) requires finishing projects at cost, time, and quality and so on, but success of the industrial programs and mega projects also have effects on countries economy and improvements.For a country development, it is needed... 

    A Model for Energy Management in Cement Industries Development in Iran

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Reyazi, Ali Akbar (Author) ; kianfar, Farhad (Supervisor)
    Importance of consumption of energy and extraction of energy from its reserve in all over the world and whole industries lies in the fact that availability of fossil fuels is limited and demand of it in industries is huge. For the sake of life of industries, each industry sector should be expanded quantitatively, so growth of energy consumption is inevitable. Development of cement industry is effected in total energy demand and harmful pollutants in whole the country and limitation in energy supply and low level of reliability in energy supply cause the increase of cement production cost which will be effected negatively in relativity principle of prioritization in cement export due to... 

    Formulating directional industry strategies for renewable energies in developing countries: The case study of Iran's wind turbine industry

    , Article Renewable Energy ; Volume 39, Issue 1 , 2012 , Pages 299-306 ; 09601481 (ISSN) Bagheri Moghaddam, N ; Mousavi, S. M ; Moallemi, E. A ; Nasiri, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    This study seeks a method for formulating directional strategy of wind turbine industry in Iran. To this end, by initially evaluating various economic viewpoints concerning the development of industries, the necessity of government intervention is recognized. By defining the concepts of national industry policy, firm technology strategy, and national technology strategy, the role of directional industry strategy is then made clear. Furthermore, the six assumptions of emphasis on formulating strategy (rather than on formulating policy), emphasis on formulating directional strategy, model's prescriptivism, emphasis on formulating the strategy at the level of industry, Iran's being a developing...

    Due to population growth and industrial development, Iran is facing the challenge of energy supply in various industrial, power plant, agricultural, and residential sectors. While most of Iran's energy supply comes from fossil fuels, these fuels have devastating environmental impacts. Therefore, Iran has to invest more in its renewable energy sources. Given that many locations of Iran have significant wind, solar, and geothermal potential, this study used a combination of SWOT, multicriteria decision-making approaches, and game theory to identify the best renewable energy development plans for the country. The Stepwise Weight Assessment Ratio Analysis (SWARA) technique was applied to weight...

    There are several methods for assessing ecosystem tolerance level, each method is defined according to the target of the ecosystem development. This paper seeks a way to plan for the development of the existing ecosystems modified for human activities. For this purpose, two methods have been applied to assess the effects of local development on the local ecosystem tailored to the different demands. Thus, after gathering data in a coastal region all technologies being capable to be applied in this region regarding ecotourism development (population growth) were determined. Via different indicators, the quality of the ecosystem was evaluated. The Ecosystem Quality Index (EQI) and Technique for...
