Abstract [en]

In this study the opportunities for automation in the poorly automated wood product industry are highlighted. This is accomplished by conducting a qualitative interview study of suppliers and system integrators for industrial robots active in this particular industry sector. Five case companies are chosen in order to explore the unique dimensions responsible for successful automation implantation in wood product companies. Results show that a low understanding of automation opportunities, unclear requirements specifications and small production volumes are the main problems for suitable automation solutions. Although wood is a fragile and changeable material, existing technology allows its manipulation with industrial robots.
