In Vienna, three public mobility stations were implemented as part of the project “Wien Mobil”. After observing the existing mobility stations and talking to different experts, the system was diagnosed as underutilized. Consequently, this paper aims to point out the reasons why the public mobility stations in Vienna have so far not attracted as many users as expected.</p> <p><strong>Methodology/Approach:</strong> The research question is answered with the support of explorative expert interviews, observational research and literature review.</p> <p><strong>Findings:</strong> The identified contributing factors for the underutilization of the mobility stations in Vienna are location, weather, lack of interoperability, low affordability, lack of reliability, and lack of publicity and educational campaigns.</p> <p><strong>Research Limitation/implication:</strong> The research lacks the perspective and data from the car sharing provider. Moreover, it was conducted during winter, which certainly increased the perception of an underutilized system.</p> <p><strong>Originality/Value of paper:</strong> This work is expected to contribute to urban mobility planning by identifying and reaffirming important factors to take into account when planning, implementing and operating mobility stations and by providing a thorough understanding of the reasons for the underutilization of mobility stations.</p> 2021-02-01T02:52:58+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Revista Produção e Desenvolvimento Residents' attitudes towards tree care programs in cityscapes 2021-07-11T00:37:50+00:00 Oghenekevwe Joy Arabomen Folaranmi Dapo Babalola Felix Oaikhena Idumah Chinyere Salome Ofordu <p><strong>Purpose</strong>: Examine residents’ attitude towards urban trees from the perspective of funding or voluntarily contributing time for tree care programs. Majority of global populace live in cities, hence, the rise in public expectations for liveable, sustainable and greener communities and urban areas all over the world, Nigeria inclusive. With proper planning and management, cities may become more liveable, but the rapid loss of large urban green areas cause havoc, and has ushered in several problems such as adverse climatic condition, reduced water and air quality, amongst others.&nbsp;<strong>Metodology</strong>: A questionnaire survey was conducted to understand how residents rank and rate the benefits of urban trees as well as individual willingness to support conservation initiatives, using Benin metropolis, Nigeria as a case study.&nbsp;<strong>Findings</strong>: Using binary logit analysis, the study identified that residents who are aware of ecosystem services, had a profession and have spent at least 20 years in the city, had a significant relationship with personal willingness to volunteer time and/or donate money toward urban tree care programs and activities.&nbsp;<strong>Contribution to knowledge:</strong> Provided quantitative information to demonstrate the importance of conserving trees in development projects towards Global SDGs.&nbsp;</p> 2021-03-22T05:00:40+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Revista Produção e Desenvolvimento Public policies on water resources for the brazilian northeastern semiarid region 2021-07-04T15:56:28+00:00 Pedro Henrique da Silva Lima Maria Losangela Martins de Sousa Larissa da Silva Ferreira Alves José Elesbão de Almeida <p><strong>ABSTRACT</strong></p> <p><strong>Objective</strong>: The present study has as main objective to identify the strategies taken by the municipal managers to adapt to the periods of greatest water difficulties in the northeastern semiarid, more specifically in the city of Doutor Severiano-RN, showing the importance of the development of these strategies in the region.&nbsp;<strong>Methodology / Approach</strong>: Research were made on the subject to identify which strategies were developed in the municipality, in addition, some field observations were made to identify the municipal public policies developed over the years.&nbsp;<strong>Conclusions</strong>: It is concluded with this study that it is essential to know the place and seek the best strategy to develop and apply these policies based on the characteristics of each region, considering the importance that they have for the social and economic development of the semiarid populations.&nbsp;<strong>Research limitations</strong>: The sample was extracted from works that addressed the topic in question, thus making the parallel of discourse between theory and practice.&nbsp;<strong>Originality / Value of the article</strong>: The study presents the strategies developed in the city of Doutor Severiano, to adapt to the periods of greatest water difficulties in the region, according to the climatic conditions of the place.</p> 2021-05-27T04:11:15+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Revista Produção e Desenvolvimento Determinants of urban cycling from the perspective of Bronfenbrenner's ecological model 2021-07-09T19:46:03+00:00 Priscilla Dutra Dias Viola Juan Torres Leandro Cardoso <p><strong>Purpose:</strong> Human behavior is complex, resulting from dynamic person-environment interactions. The study of determinants in an ecological model can be useful to understand this complexity. When it comes to bicycle commuting, previous research has identified several individual and environmental determinants that can influence behaviour and likelihood to cycle. The purpose of this article is to provide an analytical framework integrating the determinants of cycling in an analysis from the perspective of Bronfenbrenner's ecological model.&nbsp;<strong>Methodology:</strong> Through a literature review, we select scientific articles that include studies conducted from a variety of cities in the Americas, Europe and Asia.&nbsp;<strong>Findings:</strong> As a result, the article presents the determining factors for bicycle commuting in a diagram based on Bronfenbrenner’s ecological model. <strong>Research limitation:</strong> Further research, which may include a systematic or an umbrella review, could be conducted to confirm the determining factors that influence bicycle commuting in urban areas. In addition, broader work is needed to understand which factors influence the adhesion of shared bicycles and how they fit into the ecological model proposed by Bronfenbrenner.&nbsp;<strong>Originality:</strong> Our article provides guidelines for an analytic framework that can be a useful tool in case studies or comparative research on mobility and urbanism.</p> 2021-07-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Revista Produção e Desenvolvimento Collaborative robotics: a literature overview from the perspective of production management 2021-06-10T18:58:39+00:00 Juliano Endrigo Sordan Marcio Lopes Pimenta Pedro Carlos Oprime Yasmine Tomasella Rodrigues Clesio Aparecido Marinho <p><strong>Purpose:</strong> This paper aims to understand the specificities inherent to collaborative robotics from the perspective of production and operations management, as well as to identify opportunities for future research on the topic.&nbsp;<strong>Methodology/Approach: </strong>A systematic literature review was carried out through Scopus and Web of Science databases. This procedure covered 84 articles published between 1997 and 2018.&nbsp;<strong>Findings:</strong> The study revealed the issues most addressed in the research on Collaborative robots (Cobots), the most cited works, and the research approaches adopted.&nbsp;<strong>Research Limitation/implication:</strong> The sample was extracted from only two international databases excluding publications in the form of books and articles from other databases.&nbsp;<strong>Originality/Value of paper: </strong>The study reveals some specificities regarding the application and development of COBOTs, as well as their advantages and drawbacks in the scope of production management.</p> 2021-04-17T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Revista Produção e Desenvolvimento A management instrument for team performance evaluation 2021-07-04T16:29:21+00:00 Luiz Henrique da Silva Tatiana Ghedine Christiane Mendes Drozdek Pereira Sônia Regina Lamego Lino Alessandra Yula Tutida <p><strong>Purpose: </strong>This article aims to develop an instrument to assess the collective performance of work teams' production. Associated with this, this evaluation instrument is applied to two production teams from the same company in Santa Catarina, to validate it.</p> <p><strong>Methodology: </strong>The study is characterized as descriptive, quantitative and survey strategy. In order to develop the performance evaluation instrument, the literature review presented was taken as a starting point to guide the selection of the 10 indicators and 30 evaluation criteria enabling the elaboration f the questionnaire.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>In general, it is possible to observe that the teams performed “good” in most of their indicators, and none of the indicators showed “poor”, “bad” or “regular” evaluations. It is suggested to develop some strategies to overcome the weakness shown by the communication indicator in both teams. Regarding the use of the instrument, it proved to be adequate to assess the collective performance, pointing out its strengths and weaknesses.</p> <p><strong>Limitation: </strong>Singularity of application in a single company, not allowing generalizations to be made to other production teams.</p> <p><strong>Originality: </strong>The proposal of an instrument to evaluate production teams ‘performance, indicating the team’s strengths and weaknesses.</p> 2021-05-27T03:28:08+00:00 Copyright (c) 2021 Revista Produção e Desenvolvimento Thermal degradation of açaí seeds and potential application in thermochemical processes 2021-07-04T16:24:04+00:00 Luciano dos Santos Oliveira Arthur Vinicius Sousa Silva Charles Correa Conconi Edelvio de Barros Gomes Waldir Antônio Bizzo Glauber Cruz <p><strong>Purpose</strong>: Thermal and Physicochemical evaluation of <em>açaí</em> seeds for its use in thermochemical conversion processes for clean energy generation.&nbsp;<strong>Methodology</strong>: Experimental and qualitative research, using analyzes such as: Thermal analysis (TG/DTG and DTA curves) and Calorimetry, Ultimate and Proximate analyzes, Scanning Electron Microscopy, Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy, X-Ray Diffraction, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy and Optical Emission Spectroscopy - Inductively Coupled Plasma.&nbsp;<strong>Findings</strong>: It was noted that the <em>açaí</em> seeds presented carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen contents as majority elements and a Higher Heating Value (HHV) of 19.8 MJ kg<sup>-1</sup>.
