    Guidelines for designing a purchasing process for small businesses2016Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose with this paper is to contribute towards a deeper understanding of the purchasing process in SMEs. This is done by investigating general research regarding purchasing, business strategy and SMEs to create a framework of factors influencing purchasing processes in SMEs. The factors are then authenticated with an empirical study of an SME. It is concluded that all influencing factors from the framework can be applied to the SME, but that the SME tend to handle them with a short-term perspective. This paper will provide guidelines for SMEs in order to create purchasing processes with a long-term perspective, which is more integrated with their business strategy.

    Homogeneity of manufacturing choices in subcontractor SMEs2016Inngår i: Journal of Manufacturing Technology Management, ISSN 1741-038X, E-ISSN 1758-7786, Vol. 27, nr 2, s. 261-286Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate the choices made in manufacturing decision categories by subcontractor small- and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) and determines if subcontractor SMEs make homogenous manufacturing choices.

    Design/methodology/approach – A literature review was used to develop theoretical propositions. A multiple case study with 19 subcontractor SMEs was conducted.

    Findings – Factors that might lead to homogenous choices in the manufacturing strategy decision categories were formalised into four theoretical propositions. The propositions were based on new institutionalism factors as well as SME factors. The findings reveal that there is considerable heterogeneity across the subcontractor SMEs in the various manufacturing decision categories. However, there are similarities between some manufacturing choices. This can partly be explained by the proposed factors and partly by other factors, such as SME characteristics and process choices.

    Research limitations/implications – The study reinforces the need for more research that is focused on manufacturing decisions and choices in SMEs. All cases were of Swedish SMEs belonging to three different industries, potentially limiting the generalisability of findings to other industries or countries.

    Practical implications – This study highlights the importance of the different choices made considering manufacturing and the factors influencing those choices. This provides guidance for managers when they make manufacturing choices in various decision categories.

    Originality/value – By addressing new institutionalism, SME characteristics and decision categories in the same study, the author provides new insights into the categories of manufacturing decisions.

    Manufacturing Characteristics of Subcontractor SMME:s: an Empirical Study2008Inngår i: Manufacturing Systems and Technologies for the New Frontier: The 41st CIRP Conference on Manufacturing Systems May 26-28, 2008, Tokyo, Japan, London: Springer , 2008Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents empirical findings on manufacturing characteristics at subcontractor small and medium sized manufacturing enterprises (SMME). The SMME:s play a significant role in today’s economy, but they do not act to the same extent on the global market as the international larger companies. To remain competitive on the global market SMME:s should improve manufacturing.

    The study has been accomplished in different industries and different sizes to identify their characteristics. The results indicate that SMME:s are focused on process technologies and not on the entire manufacturing system. The companies also have difficulties in locating and hiring skilled people.

    Initiation of Hoshin Kanri in SMEs using a tentative process2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Hoshin Kanri is a management method supporting strategic work. In spite of a number of Hoshin Kanri success stories in large organizations, little research attention are given to SMEs. This research encourages an increased focus on Hoshin Kanri in SMEs. In this paper a tentative process for the initiation of Hoshin Kanri in SMEs is outlined. We also identify factors influencing the initiation of Hoshin Kanri in SMEs based on findings from eight case studies. The result shows that the initiation of Hoshin Kanri varied in the case studies as the factors enable or hinder the initiation of Hoshin Kanri.

    Introducing the Hoshin Kanri approach in small and medium sized companies2014Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In order to grow, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have to balance the inherent flexibility of the small firm with formal work division and administrative routines. This balancing is apparent in SME’s approach to strategy work. In order to address this need of balancing in strategy work we in this paper introduce the Hoshin Kanri approach to the SME context. Based on an extensive literature review we identify the principles of Hoshin Kanri and develop an adapted approach to small and medium sized companies. Finally we report on the lessons learnt after initiating the adapted approach in four SMEs.

    Leadership characteristics and Hoshin Kanri in small and medium sized enterprises2016Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper aims at contribute to an understanding of how present leadership characteristics influence the implementation of HK in manufacturing SMEs. The research is based around two case companies where the ideas of HK was implemented in an action research project. The leadership characteristics associated with HK include characteristics such as supporting, coaching, challenging, involving top management and co-workers. The findings show that HK leadership characteristics have similarities with lean leadership and developmental leadership characteristics. The two cases have successfully began to implement HK and the CEO’s in both cases have a present leadership style resembling of developmental leadership.

    Leadership style, organization culture and manufacturing strategy formulation - Empirical evidence from Swedish SMEs2013Inngår i: Proceedings for 22nd International Conference on Production Research, Iguassu Falls, Brazil, July 28-Aug 1, 2013., 2013Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents findings from an empirical study of manufacturing strategy formulation processes in three SMEs. The study investigated the relationship between manufacturing strategy formulation, leadership style, and organisation culture. The three companies had different formulation processes. One tentative explanation for this is due to leadership style and the personalised management that characterises SMEs. An analysis model, including leadership style and organisation culture was applied. One company was classified as having a support culture, and the other two as having a power culture. The latter two were more mature considering strategic work, and acted on more competitively exposed markets than the company with a support culture.

    Manufacturing strategy formulation, leadership style and organisational culture in small and medium-sized enterprises2016Inngår i: International Journal of Manufacturing Technology and Management (IJMTM), ISSN 1368-2148, E-ISSN 1741-5195, Vol. 30, nr 5, s. 306-325Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study encourages an increased focus on managerial and organisational issues in manufacturing strategy formulation. The study investigates the relationship between manufacturing strategy formulation, leadership style and organisational culture in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Manufacturing strategy formulation is studied in three cases, and it is found that the formulation is different in each case. Leadership style is more visible than organisational culture in manufacturing strategy formulation in the case companies. Owing to the small number of employees in SMEs, the top manager’s decisions influence the whole organisation and the organisational culture. The leadership style and organisational culture are closely aligned in SMEs owing to the managers and to the centralised decision-making.

    Manufacturing strategy formulation process – evidence from SMEs2012Inngår i: Proceedings of the 3rd EurOMA-POMS World Conference, International Annual EurOMA Conference, 2012Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents an empirical study of the formulation process of manufacturing strategies using a conceptual framework in small and medium-sized manufacturing enterprises. SMEs are known to have an informal and unintentional strategy formulation process and this study shows that SMEs can benefit using guidance in the manufacturing strategy formulation process. The conceptual framework provides a structure, which facilitates the understanding and the way of working. Other benefits are a closer dialogue between different functions of a company, a shared view in the organisation of improvements in manufacturing and a common view of their competitive priorities.

    Manufacturing strategy frameworks suitable for SMEs2014Inngår i: Journal of Manufacturing Technology Management, ISSN 1741-038X, E-ISSN 1758-7786, Vol. 25, nr 1, s. 7-26Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The paper aims at increasing the understanding of how manufacturing strategy formulation can be facilitated in SMEs.

    Design/methodology/approach: The research presented in this paper follows a four-stage logic. Initially a literature review was conducted identifying a number of manufacturing strategy frameworks. Thereafter, theoretical and practical assessment criteria were established. The SME requirements were identified through five case studies. Based on these assessment criteria, identified manufacturing strategy formulation frameworks were evaluated. When a framework was found that fulfilled most of the requirements set out, a detailed analysis of the framework was done, based on criteria related to specific SME characteristics.

    Findings: In total 15 different manufacturing strategy formulation frameworks were identified in the literature. To evaluate the suitability of these frameworks in SMEs, a number of assessment criteria were established, both in theory and in practice. These assessment criteria were grouped into three parts based on their character: procedure, realisation and contextual issues. The assessment of the 15 frameworks revealed that among the identified frameworks there was one framework that stood out and fulfilled several of the criteria. However, the frameworks still need to be adapted to the specific SME characteristics.

    Practical implications: Based on an assessment of the existing manufacturing strategy frameworks we have been able to identify one framework that fulfills 10 out of 14 of the theoretical and empirical requirements.

    Originality/contribution: Although a number of manufacturing strategy frameworks exist, their applicability in practice has seldom been investigated. The results presented provide valuable knowledge for the continued work of rendering manufacturing strategy frameworks suitable and thereby useful for SMEs.

    The use of a manufacturing strategy tool and the role of national culture2014Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents findings from an empirical study of the use of a manufacturing strategy tool in seven companies in Sweden and Singapore. We investigated the influence of national culture when using a manufacturing strategy tool. Hofstede’s national cultural dimensions and underlying factors model were applied. The findings show that it is possible to explain differences in the use of manufacturing strategy tools when considering national cultural dimensions. It was found that the factors of power distance, long-term orientation, and masculinity influence participation and decision- making when using a manufacturing strategy tool.

    Classification of Competitive Priorities in Small and Medium sized Manufacturing Enterprises2008Inngår i: Swedish Production Symposium, SPS 2008, 2008Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Today Small and Medium sized Manufacturing Enterprises (SMMEs) face severe competition from low cost countries. SMMEs must find their market and master manufacturing outputs such as cost, delivery, flexibility, and quality. This paper focuses on competitive priorities that affect the manufacturing system in SMMEs and the aim of the paper is to identify which competitive priorities are strengths and weaknesses for these companies. The study has been performed at industries of different sizes and type to classify the manufacturing outputs. The result of the study shows that flexibility and innovativeness are strengths, while cost and delivery are weaknesses since they depend on the lack of skilled personnel, lack of performance measurements and time. Quality is ranked as one of the most important priorities in the literature, but the study identified quality as neither a strength nor a weakness. Many of the companies in the study do not have control of, nor do they measure the competitive priories, which affect the companies negatively. To remain competitive the small companies must know which manufacturing outputs are the order winners and control the order winning competitive priorities. The competitive priorities must be analysed further to understand which the suitable manufacturing outputs are for small companies today.

    Introducing the Hoshin Kanri strategic management system in manufacturing SMEs2016Inngår i: Management Decision, ISSN 0025-1747, E-ISSN 1758-6070, Vol. 54, nr 10, s. 2507-2523Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore the basic principles and introduction of the Hoshin Kanri (HK) strategic management system, as related to the management practices in manufacturing small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

    Design/methodology/approach – This paper reports the findings from the introduction of HK to four manufacturing SMEs by following an assistance support-based research approach where teams of coaches and researchers observed and learned from the introduction phase. The overall design of the project is theory building and learning oriented.

    Findings – It is suggested that the successful introduction of a strategic management system in manufacturing SMEs has to balance the inherent level of formalization therein, with the individual company’s management practices. Based on HK as the strategic management system, pDCA is proposed as an alternative approach to the introduction, matching differences in management practices.

    Research limitations/implications – The explorative nature of this research provides room for subsequent studies by elaborating the knowledge on the introduction of strategic management systems in SMEs.

    Practical implications – Awareness of the existing managerial practices is essential when introducing a new strategic management system in manufacturing SMEs. Such awareness is the starting point of customizing the introduction, so that proper levels of engagement and flexibility can be balanced with increasing systematic formalization, and optimized adequacy.

    Originality/value – Following an assistance support-based research approach the result of this research project is summarized in the iterative pDCA model emphasizing engagement and flexibility when incrementally introducing strategic management systems in SMEs. This model addresses a hitherto under-researched topic in strategic management.

    Abstract [en]

    Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are very important to European industry, acting as suppliers to global companies, but also as OEMs. To keep up with competition from global sourcing, they however need to be pro-active and have clear ideas on how to compete. In this work, manufacturing strategies may constitute the necessary guidance. In this paper we present the development of an analytical tool for manufacturing strategy formulation, easy to use and thus suitable to SMEs, who often lack resources in terms of competence or money.

    Requirements on manufacturing strategy frameworks for SMME2012Inngår i: Proceedings of Swedish Production Symposium, 2012Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Small and medium-sized enterprises are crucial for national finances and economic growth. For small and medium-sized manufacturing enterprises (SMME) it is essential for competiveness that manufacturing supports the overall company goals. Despite this, previous investigations show that it is mainly larger companies that are aware of the role of manufacturing for competitiveness and therefore formulates manufacturing strategies. The purpose of this paper is to increase the understanding about how manufacturing strategy formulation can be facilitated within SMME, and specifically on requirements that are raised on frameworks to support the work with manufacturing strategy processes. The presented results are based on five case studies, carried out in five different small and medium-sized units/companies. The result indicate that they on the one hand want the framework to be easy to understand and to use, but on the other hand it should be comprehensive, and it should provide recommendations for actions. Furthermore, a framework has to consider aspects related to the actual work procedure, the use of the framework, and with the outcome of the work. This analysis provides a valuable foundation for the on-going work of developing a framework for manufacturing strategy formulation adapted to the characteristics among SMME.

    Usability of a manufacturing strategy framework developed for SMEs2014Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Still, 45 years after Skinner’s (1969) call for manufacturing strategies, explicit manufacturing strategies are scarse in manufacturing industry, especially in SMEs. Together with a number of SMEs, we have developed a manufacturing strategy tool, aimed at supporting manufacturing strategy formulation. In this paper, the focus is on requirements on a manufacturing strategy tool related to the usability in SMEs. Results from evaluation of the tool during development is presented. The resulting tool was considered to be useful to the participating companies, helping them to get over the initial treshold of working with manufacturing strategies.

    On the way to a smart factory for single-family wooden house builders in Sweden2018Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    To remain competitive, single-family wooden house builders might create smart wooden house factories. Smart factories and smart production are recent concepts used to denote ideas that support competitiveness in for example the automotive industry. In the housing sector, a concept introduced to increase competitiveness is industrialized house-building. The aim of the study presented here was to investigate whether industrialized house-building characteristics could be a step toward a smart factory for wooden house builders. In this paper, ideas of the smart wooden house factory are synthesized, and challenges for the single-family wooden house builder are identified. The study is founded on empirical data from one single-case study. A challenge identified was the maturity level of the culture and organization to commit to and utilize modern technology and modern working methods. The concept of the smart wooden house factory is still in its infancy and needs further research.

    A tentative comprehensive manufacturing strategy framework adapted to the requirements in SME2012Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    It is well-known that small and medium sized manufacturing enterprises (SMMEs) lack resources to work actively with their manufacturing strategies. Previous frameworks and tools have shown to work fairly well, but they are too complicated for the SMMEs. This paper presents a suggestion for an easy to use tool.
