  • Technology Transfer for Product Life Cycle Extension: A Model for Successful Implementation 

    Cormican, Kathryn; O'Connor, Michael (2009)
    This paper examines the logistical and operational issues relating to technology transfer. It documents the specific problems encountered as well as the solution designed to overcome these problems. The paper presents a ...
  • Technology transfer model 

    Cormican, Kathryn; O'Connor, Michael (2007)
    According to Burgleman and Maidique (1998) the ability to undertake technology transfer is a key capability for an organisation. It enables them to extend their product life cycles when older technologies mature. Technology ...
  • Towards effective knowledge management: An analysis of European manufacturing SMEs 

    Cormican, Kathryn (2006)
    Knowledge is a key resource that must be managed within European organisations in general and because of their importance to the economy Manufacturing SMEs in particular. The key challenges that face such organisations ...
  • Towards Empathic Design in the Irish Medical Device Industry 

    Cormican, Kathryn (2012-05)
    The goal of this study is twofold (a) to identify whether empathic design methods are used in the medical device industry in Ireland and (b) to identify the challenges faced by designers when implementing empathic design ...
  • Truncation error in mesh-free particle methods 

    Quinlan, Nathan J.; Basa, Mihai; Lastiwka, Martin (2006-06-25)
    A truncation error analysis has been developed for the approximation of spatial derivatives in smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) and related first-order consistent methods such as the first-order form of the reproducing ...
  • Understanding ambient intelligence: Typologies for systems development 

    Cormican, Kathryn; Gill, Simrn (2006)
    This paper examines the concept of ambient intelligence (AmI). Currently research in this field is ambiguous. There are not many definitions and consequently it is difficult to understand the concept. This paper seeks to ...
  • Value chain migration from production to product centred operations: an analysis of the Irish medical device industry 

    Cormican, Kathryn (2006)
    The medical device industry in Ireland is largely confined to manufacturing operations. This narrow focus limits the competitiveness of the industry in Ireland and consequently poses a threat to development and growth. ...
  • Virtual team environment for collaborative research projects 

    Precup, Lavinia; O'Sullivan, David; Cormican, Kathryn (2006)
    One of the main limiting factors that reduce the potential output the innovation projects, involving different organisations and individuals from different geographical areas, is the poor communication and knowledge sharing ...
  • Void distributions and permeability prediction for rotationally moulded polymers 

    Murray, Brendan R.; Leen, Sean B.; Ó Brádaigh, Conchúr M. (SAGE, 2014-01-22)
    An experimental study of void distributions for rotationally moulded polyethylene is presented. The effects of key variables such as maximum process temperature and nominal wall thickness (via powder mass) are studied. ...
  • A web enabled solution for managing distributed product innovation 

    Cormican, Kathryn; O'Sullivan, David (2000)
    New organisational forms such as strategic partnerships and networks are replacing simple market based transactions and traditional bureaucratic, hierarchical organisations. Consequently, a new conception of product design ...
  • Workplace Exposure to Bioaerosols in Podiatry Clinics 

    Coggins, Marie; Hogan, Victoria; Kelly, Martina; Fleming, Gerard; Roberts, Nigel (Oxford Journals, 2012-01-03)
    The aim of this study was to design and execute a pilot study to collect information on the personal exposure levels of podiatrists to microbial hazards in podiatry clinics and also to assess health and safety knowledge ...
  • An XFEM-Based Methodology for Fatigue Delamination and Permeability in Composites 

    Grogan, David M.; Leen, Sean B.; Ó Brádaigh, Conchúr M. (2014)
    Carbon fibre reinforced polymers (CFRP) are one of the prospective material families being investigated for use in the fuel tanks of future reusable space launch vehicles (RSLVs). The extreme thermo-mechanical loading that ...
