    Sustainable production adoption by surface treatment SMEs: Challenges and enablers2015Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The adoption to sustainable production is a continuous but necessary strive for manufacturing operations, including small and medium enterprises, SMEs. Meeting the future needs of the economic, social and environmental dimensions provides challenges for SMEs. In order for these challenges to be met understanding of internal and external enablers is required. Studies focusing on the enablers for sustainability amongst SMEs are rare; hence these companies are important players in the supply chain to focal companies. In order to enhance the understanding of the adoption of sustainable production for the sector surface treatment SMEs, an explorative study has been conducted. In this study, the focus has been placed in the identification and analysis of the challenges and enablers for adoption of sustainable production. Two stages of empirical data collection were undertaken: a focus group session and an online questionnaire. The findings present challenges based on the limitations of the surface treatment process but also where enablers for the social, economic and environmental for meeting those challenges are strongly linked. The results showed that these SMEs face challenges in their way towards sustainable production, mainly due to: low economic profitability, need for improvement in old working procedures, lack of fully understanding regarding environmental legislation, difficulty in ensuring workforce, lack of technology development and resistance towards change. These challenges could be faced through internal and external enablers, where the support of large-size customers and other stakeholders is critical for these SMEs.

    Conceptual sustainable production principles in practice: Do they reflect what companies do?2017Inngår i: Journal of Cleaner Production, ISSN 0959-6526, E-ISSN 1879-1786, Vol. 141, s. 693-701Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    A common understanding of sustainable production principles and the identification of sustainable manufacturing practices among practitioners are key starting points in studying how manufacturers are making their operations more sustainable. However, there is a lack of insight in the literature connecting conceptual sustainable production principles, and the practices reflecting these principles. Using semi-structured interviews founded on the sustainable production principles posed by the Lowell Center for Sustainable Production, this paper presents an outlook of how companies in different industries carry out manufacturing practices related to the sustainability production principles. Results showed that the majority of sustainable manufacturing practices remain strongly centered on the environmental dimension of sustainability, with the greatest number of practices emanating from principles concerning energy and material conservation, and waste management. Similarly, reactive sustainable manufacturing practices prevailed over proactive sustainable manufacturing practices, as most of the practices aimed to comply with regulatory and market pressures. Quality and environmental management systems were acknowledged as important tools for putting sustainable production principles into practice; while Swedish environmental and social regulations were found to drive sustainable manufacturing practices. This study connects sustainable production principles with sustainable manufacturing practices and opens the way for further studies on a global or sector-specific scale.

    Sustainability in manufacturing: A literature review2013Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Increased sustainability awareness among consumers and other stakeholders has created a challenging environment for manufacturers. In order to remain in current markets it is expected from manufacturer's operations to be conscious about their impact on sustainability issues. The paper reports on a systematic review which examines sustainability practices in manufacturing companies. The systematic review aims to identify empirical-based papers to pinpoint sustainability issues addressed within manufacturing industry. To do so, trending topic categories were identified for each sustainability dimension (environment, people and profit). This paper provides further direction for future research.

    Environmental and Economic Implications of a Shift to Halogen-Free Printed Wiring Boards2005Inngår i: Circuit world, ISSN 0305-6120, E-ISSN 1758-602X, Vol. 31, nr 3, s. 26-31Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – To present the outcome from one case study in the EU project grEEEn (Cost Management System for greening Electrical and Electronic Equipment). The study addressed the material shift in printed wiring boards (PWBs), from the traditional FR4 material containing halogenated flame retardants to halogen-free FR4 materials.

    Design/methodology/approach – The paper presents by way of introduction the grEEEn method. From the product, process and scenario modelling the results from the analysis of cost, environmental profile and legal compliance are presented and discussed.

    Findings – It was found that the shift to the halogen-free material leads to a slight increase in environmental burden. However, the shift to a halogen-free material could mean that toxic substances are eliminated or reduced resulting in an overall improvement of the environmental performance. The shift causes an increase in cost ranging between nearly zero and 10 ? per PWB panel.

    Originality/value – The paper presents results from the first study on the shift from FR4 material containing halogenated flame retardants to halogen-free FR4 materials and comprises an analysis of the economic, environmental and legislative implications.

    Dual Perspective on information exchange between design and manufacturing2011Inngår i: Proceedings of Iced11: Design Information and Knowledge, Vol. 6, Glasgow Design Society , 2011Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses the exchange of information between the design and manufacturing interface from both perspectives in order to ensure interdepartmental integration and improve the performance of new product development projects. Based on two in-depth case studies, this article illustrates that there are differences in the type of information transferred between design and manufacturing as well as how this information is shared. While design engineers ask for feedback to their work regarding both the product and the project, relies the production system designer heavily on feed-forward information concerning the product per se. For effective new product development, it seems however beneficial that design engineers also should give feedback to the production system concept. The implication is that project managers need to carefully consider how to improve the sharing of information upstream in new product development projects and what communication medium to apply to transfer the information between design and manufacturing.

    An approach to foster integrative skills during the engineering studies2011Inngår i: Conference proceedings, Technical University of Denmark , 2011Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents an approach to overcome the drawbacks associated with education programs developed on the basis of domain-specific knowledge only. The approach is based on establishment of means for cross-disciplinary meetings and collaboration between students on Master programs in product development and production management. The approach is intended to help reducing the barriers to integration among individuals possessing different competences that have been reported in the literature. The approach originates from discussions regarding two Master programs at the School of Engineering (JTH), Jönköping University, Sweden. The programs are: Master in Product Development, specialisation in Product Development and Materials Engineering and Production Systems, specialisation in Production Development and Management. Both programs are designed according to the principles of the CDIO initiative. The approach was developed jointly by the two Master program coordinators during a workshop at Stanford University on ‘Changing mindsets: Improving creativity and innovation’ in December 2010. The workshop was organised by the Swedish program ‘Product Innovation Engineering program’ (PIEp). The approach emerged during the workshop and was modelled as a physical prototype and discussed with other workshop participants. The result was three courses found to besuitable for joint studies.

    Challenges with industralization in a supply chain network: A supplier perspective2015Inngår i: Proceedings of the MakeLearn and TIIM Joint International Conference, Bari, Italy, 27–29 May 2015., 2015, s. 309-318Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to explore the challenges with industrialization across a supply chain network, from a supplier perspective. The study focuses on identifying the challenges encountered by the supplier, when working with industrialization alongside the customer’s industrialization process, the reasons for and the effects of these challenges, as well as how these challenges can be managed. These issues have been examined through a single case study including a Swedish company from the polymer systems and components industry. Empirical data has been collected through in-depth and semi-structured interviews. This study has identified fourteen challenges as well as their main reasons and effects. In addition, solutions to the challenges have been identified. The challenges can be classified as internal or external. An internal challenge originates from inside the supplier’s own organization, while an external challenge originates from the customer’s organization or from the collaboration between the two organizations. This study is explorative in nature and is limited to one supplier located in Sweden. Thus, empirical data from similar and other research settings should be gathered to reinforce the validity of the findings.

    Incorporating environmental concern in product development: A study of project characteristics2006Inngår i: Management of environmental quality, ISSN 1477-7835, E-ISSN 1758-6119, Vol. 17, nr 4, s. 421-436Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The paper aims at providing empirically-based insights into product development when environmental performance requirements are addressed. The purpose is to investigate characteristics of product development projects when environmental performance requirements are considered.

    Design/methodology/approach – The research was carried out as in-depth case studies of two commercial product development projects. Data was primarily collected via open-ended semi-structured interviews. Other sources of data include written project material, such as minutes from meetings, project and product specifications, company-internal education material, etc. A few project meetings were also attended.

    Findings – The paper indicates that the characteristics of product development projects differ when environmental performance requirements are considered. On the basis of the identified differences a two-dimensional model is suggested. It contains the dimensions “level of ecodesign experience” and “environmental complexity”. The model outlines a tentative contingency framework that can be used for positioning different organisations concerning their level of experience in ecodesign and the challenges they face concerning complexity in the interrelationships between the products and the environment.

    Practical implications – The findings presented in the paper provide some insights into the characteristics of projects carried out in organisations in which the “level of ecodesign experience” and “environmental complexity” differ. Aspects related to the two dimensions represented in the model are discussed in the paper. This should support companies to be better prepared for managing the challenges associated with the incorporation of environmental performance requirements into product development projects.

    Originality/value – Although different issues have been addressed in earlier ecodesign research, one problem is that ecodesign research often addresses the environmental impacts exclusively, whereas other aspects of product development are omitted or only briefly discussed. Taking the starting point in a number of elements that have been outlined in the literature as representing vital areas of concern in product development, this paper contributes to the understanding of how development organisations consider environmental performance requirements in the product development projects.

    Product innovation for sustainability: on product properties for efficient disassembly2008Inngår i: International Journal of Sustainable Engineering, ISSN 1939-7038, E-ISSN 1939-7046, Vol. 1, nr 1, s. 32-41Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Due to increasing societal awareness, nowadays companies need to consider environmental issues in their business activities. A requirement that has entered the agenda is the design of products to support efficient end‐of‐life management. However, though previous research has addressed various disassembly aspects there is a need for more understanding on which product properties are essential for efficient disassembly processes. Better understanding is also required regarding when, during the product development process, these properties are established. On the basis of empirical studies of disassembly of electrical and electronic equipment and vehicles, this paper suggests a number of product properties that are essential for efficiency of the disassembly process. Furthermore, the paper analyses when these properties are set in the product development process. Four product properties, denoted disassembly properties, have been identified: ease of identification; accessibility; ease of separation; and ease of handling. The analysis shows that these properties are affected during all product development phases. Especially in the early phases it is crucial to consider the disassembly properties in order to avoid unnecessary and costly design changes that may occur in the later development phases if the design solutions are pulled in the wrong direction.

    Success factors for integration of ecodesign in product development: A review of state of the art2002Inngår i: Environmental Management and Health, ISSN 0956-6163, E-ISSN 1758-7085, Vol. 13, nr 1, s. 98-107Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    On the basis of a literature review, 20 factors essential for successful integration of ecodesign in product development are presented in this paper. The success factors are structured according to six areas of concern: management, customer relationships, supplier relationships, development process, competence and motivation. By relating the factors to a number of product development elements that are generally claimed to be important for product development success, it is indicated that the integration of ecodesign to a great extent are related to the same elements. A few factors seem to be specific for the integration of ecodesign. These factors are related to competence and motivation. As many of the ecodesign integration success factors relate to those elements that are acknowledged to affect product development success, this implies that a company that manages product development well increases the likelihood of being successful when integrating ecodesign into product development.

    Abstract [en]

    Despite the various barriers that seem to hamper integration between product designers and environmental specialists, few studies have addressed how different mechanisms may reduce these barriers. This paper focuses on such mechanisms, specifically addressing product development within the electronics industry. On the basis of empirical case studies, different mechanisms are addressed regarding their potential to support integration between product designers and environmental specialists. Consistent with the literature on conventional product development, the findings indicate that both organizational mechanisms and technological mechanisms seem valid for facilitating such integration.

    An analysis of product properties affecting performance of end-of-life systems for electrical and electronics equipment2008Inngår i: Management of environmental quality, ISSN 1477-7835, E-ISSN 1758-6119, Vol. 19, nr 6, s. 705-717Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – On the basis of empirical studies, the purpose of this paper is to identify and analyse product properties that affect performance of end-of-life systems for electrical and electronic equipment (EEE).

    Design/methodology/approach – The research was carried out as case studies of end-of-life management of EEE. Case A focused on disassembly of computer screens and TV-sets, whereas Case B addressed logistics systems for recycling of various types of EEE. Data collection methods include interviews, on-site visits and observations, video recording, and studies of documents.

    Findings – In total, nine product properties that affect performance of end-of-life systems for EEE are identified. The properties relate to three different product levels: the product assortment, the product structure, and the component levels. A model is presented which indicates that choices made and decisions taken in the product development process affect the end-of-life system performance. Application of modular product architectures and component standardisation are suggested as relevant design strategies during product development.

    Practical implications – The implications for managers are that the findings presented in this paper provide strengthened arguments that modular product architectures and component standardisation are favourable approaches to apply in product development. Complementary to the benefits for manufacturing and logistics also end-of-life system performance will improve when these approaches are applied.

    Originality/value – Previous research has indicated some product properties that are supposed to influence performance of end-of-life systems. These properties originate primarily from conceptual discussions rather than empirical studies. This paper adds to current understanding by presenting empirically-based insights regarding which specific product properties affect performance.

    Organising for environmental considerations in complex product development projects: Implications from introducing a “green” sub-project2006Inngår i: Journal of Cleaner Production, ISSN 0959-6526, E-ISSN 1879-1786, Vol. 14, nr 15-16, s. 1368-1376Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents findings from a case study of a product development project in which environmental performance requirements were introduced. Focus is set on how the project was organised in order to ensure that the environmental performance requirements were considered. A specific “Green” sub-project was included in the project organisation. The analysis shows that such a sub-project can: (1) serve as a means to put environmental considerations on the agenda, (2) introduce a risk for confusion regarding who is responsible for fulfilling the environmental performance requirements, (3) act as an arena for communication about the environmental performance requirements, (4) serve as a platform for environmental champions to be active, and (5) serve as a means for environmental specialists to become part of established contact networks in the product development organisation.

    Planned or experience-based processes for ecodesign innovation: Exploring product development driven by environmental performance targets2001Inngår i: International Journal of Environmental Technology and Management, ISSN 1466-2132, E-ISSN 1741-511X, Vol. 1, nr 1-2, s. 164-178Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Eco-design research suggests that environmental considerations should be integrated with product development with no or only minor changes to existing development processes. These processes are expected to be systematic, predictable and thoroughly planned. This paper explores if this assumption is still valid when requirements on environmental performance call for more innovative product development. An analytic model is derived from innovation management literature and used to analyse the development of a new industrial gas turbine, a project for which challenging emission level targets meant that new combustion technology had to be applied. The main conclusion is that the application of new technology is followed by changes of the development process, meaning that development becomes guided by real-time experiences rather than by formal plans.

    Lean and green product development: two sides of the same coin?2014Inngår i: Journal of Cleaner Production, ISSN 0959-6526, E-ISSN 1879-1786, Vol. 85, nr 15, s. 104-121Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper compares and contrasts the lean product development (LPD) and green product development (GPD) concepts through a systematic literature review including 102 journal publications. The review resulted in 14 findings that were organised according to four dimensions: general, process, people and tools/techniques. A number of similarities between the concepts were found. For example, implementation of both concepts calls for a systems perspective where the dimensions of process-people- tools/techniques are linked holistically. Differences between the LPD and GPD concepts lie in: their goal and focus, value construct, process structure, performance metrics, and tools/techniques used. The findings do not unambiguously support that “green thinking is thinking lean” and consequently it cannot be argued that LPD and GPD are two sides of the same coin, meaning that LPD automatically leads to greener products or that GPD ensures improvements and efficiency in the product development process. However, it is reasonable to conclude that LPD and GPD belong to the same “currency”. That is, the concepts share a number of similarities that indicate a synergistic relationship. This synergistic relationship has been accentuated by a nine propositions where the potential for cross-field learning is shown.

    Managing uncertainty, complexity and dispersion in product development projects2015Inngår i: International Journal of Product Development, ISSN 1477-9056, E-ISSN 1741-8178, Vol. 20, nr 1, s. 25-48Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper reports findings from the application of a new method, denoted the Interface Management Method (IMM), for managing uncertainty, complexity and dispersion in product development projects. The method was applied in three commercial projects and evaluated against desired features of product development methods reported in the literature. The findings indicate the potential of the method to support product development teams when facing challenges related to uncertainty, complexity and dispersion as it helps create focus and a dialogue on how to deal with the challenges. The paper also adds to the discourse regarding product development methods by discussing and defining four interrelated concepts: method, tool, procedure and system. Through more precise definitions, the dialogue between academics and practitioners can be refined and lead to better methods, which will ultimately result in improved product development efficiency and effectiveness.

    Towards management of challenges in the innovation process: a case study on the application of the interface assessment tool2013Inngår i: Product: Management & Development, ISSN 1676-4056, Vol. 11, nr 1, s. 15-23Artikkel i tidsskrift (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Product development projects face a broad range of challenges. In this paper, we report the results of acase study in which the so-called Interface assessment tool was used to assess six key challenges in a commercialproduct development project: 1) market uncertainty, 2) technological uncertainty, 3) product complexity and/ordegree of change in product, 4) production complexity and/or degree of change in production, 5) dispersion betweentechnology development and product development, and 6) dispersion between product development and production.Evaluation of the Interface assessment tool indicates consistency with ideal features that tools should have in order toaid in product development. Furthermore, the collective view of the project team members involved in the assessmentindicates that the Interface assessment tool offers valuable support for identification of uncertainties, establishmentof a joint vision of the project, and minimization of multiple interpretations of the challenges a product developmentteam might face. Consequently, this tool may contribute to sensemaking capability in a product development team.

    Implementation of R&D management models in global organisations2015Inngår i: Ds 80-3 Proceedings Of The 20Th International Conference On Engineering Design (Iced 15) Vol 3: Organisation And Management, 2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper addresses implementation of R&D management models in global product development organisations. The study rests upon empirical material originating from five industrial companies that was collected via workshops and interviews. A number of enablers for and barriers to implementation of R&D management models have been identified. The study adds to the current theory on how companies with global organisations can ensure that the R&D management model is implemented throughout the entire organisation. In addition, the practical value refers to that the identified enablers and barriers support companies in their strive towards better adherence to the R&D management models in product development projects.

    Introducing environmental concerns in manufacturing strategies: Implications for the decision criteria2010Inngår i: Management Research Review, ISSN 2040-8269, E-ISSN 2040-8277, Vol. 33, nr 9, s. 877-899Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – Concern for environmental issues has entered the agenda in many companies within the manufacturing industry. The purpose of this paper is to analyse implications for the decision criteria when environmental issues are introduced into manufacturing strategy. Furthermore, the purpose is to present a framework illustrating how concern for environmental issues affects the manufacturing strategy formulation process.

    Design/methodology/approach – The paper is based on a review of literature on environmentally conscious manufacturing and literature on manufacturing strategy. These two fields of research are merged in the analysis.

    Findings – The analysis shows that concern for environmental issues may lead to a number of potential implications for the decision criteria. These implications may, in turn, affect the manufacturing strategy formulation process. A framework is presented that illustrates the interrelationships between the drivers for environmental concern, effects for the competitive priorities, implications for the decision criteria, and how it may affect the manufacturing strategy formulation process.

    Research limitations/implications – Inclusion of environmental issues potentially complicates the manufacturing strategy formulation process. This implies a need for further studies on the challenges companies face in the strategy formulation process.

    Practical implications – The implications for the decision criteria and the framework presented in the paper may encourage companies to prepare for inclusion of environmental concern in the manufacturing strategy formulation process.

    Originality/value – Manufacturing strategy has not traditionally included concern for environmental issues. The paper adopts a novel approach in which research findings on environmental concern are integrated with literature on manufacturing strategy.

    Project portfolio management in technology transformation situations2017Inngår i: International Association for Management of Technology IAMOT 2017 Conference Proceedings, International Association for Management of Technology , 2017Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Project portfolio management (PPM) is central for project-based firms to achieve structure and prioritization among multiple projects. Competitive pressures, emergence of new technology and constantly changing customer demand imply a dynamic nature of PPM that calls for adjustments to different situations. This paper investigates PPM challenges that a company in the lighting industry face during a technology transformation from fluorescent technology to LED technology. The technology transformation resembles a modular innovation and the question asked is: How does technology transformation influence the project selection process? The findings rest upon an in-depth case study where data was collected via narrative interviews with representatives having detailed insights into the company’s PPM activities and decisions. The key findings from the study are: (1) When a company faces a technology, which involves most products in the portfolio to be converted to a new technology, the project selection focus shifts from “what products should be developed” to “in what order should the products be developed”. (2) The technology transformation might lead to that the planned order for carrying out projects can be frequently changed due to reprioritizations during project execution phase. Based on the key findings it can be concluded that PPM selection seems more dynamic than postulated in the literature.

    This paper contributes with increased insights into the dynamic nature of project selection, specifically related to a technology transformation situations characterized by modular innovation. Further studies are needed regarding effects of other kinds of technology transformations on project selection activities and decisions as well as other factors contributing to the dynamics of PPM.

    Interfaces between technology development, product development and production: critical factors and a conceptual model2007Inngår i: International Journal of Technology Intelligence and Planning (IJTIP), ISSN 1740-2832, E-ISSN 1740-2840, Vol. 3, nr 4, s. 317-330Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Interfaces between technology development, product development, and production must be managed in order to avoid misfits between technology and product concepts and ensure the fit of the product design and the production process. In this paper, critical challenges related to these interfaces are studied based on in-depth case studies of ten product development projects at five manufacturing firms, two workshops and a questionnaire. Our findings indicate that factors related to synchronisation and transfer management are most critical. A tentative model is formulated as an instrument to reduce risk and uncertainty related to the interfaces.

    From Product Development to Production: On the Complexity of Geographical and Organizational Dispersion2006Inngår i: Proceedings of the R&D Management Conference, Lake Windermere, Cumbria, UK, 2006Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Earlier research has addressed various aspects of the interrelationships between Product development and Production. However few articles explain what the concept consist of. Those that do explain the concept are conceptually driven and not based on empirical studies. This is why this paper has addressed the often neglected issue of what the Product Development-Production (PD-P) interface really consist of. The logic in our reasoning is that before sound improvements can be suggested for the PD-P interface there is a need to understand what it is. Better insights into which the generic components of the PD-P interface are may support the integration between the two departments and hence increase efficiency in the industrial innovation processes in terms of shortened lead-times, lower costs, etc.

    The empirical data in this paper originates from case studies carried out at three Swedish manufacturing companies. The data was collected via semi-structured interviews with key actors involved in the three product development projects. The empirical findings are merged with theory into a tentative model that describes four generic components of the PD-P interface. The Technology component consists of the fit of product technology and production process technology. The Organization component involves the meeting between the production development and production organizations. The Tasks carried out during product development must also be aligned appropriately with the production tasks. The Scope component is what is being transferred between product development and production by various information tools and carriers, such as prototypes, blueprints, emails etc

    The identification of these components provides a basis for further studies and analysis of the PD-P interface. As the model is tentative, future studies should also test the validity of the model as well as search for appropriate management approaches. Different problems should be addressed from a holistic view of the PD-P interface including aggravating circumstances such as geographic distance between the departments, complex products or new production systems. In-depth studies of the individual components as well as connections between them would also generate more insight to the PD-P interface.

    Assessing interface challenges in product development projects2013Inngår i: Research technology management, ISSN 0895-6308, E-ISSN 1930-0166, Vol. 56, nr 1, s. 40-48Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Product development projects are exposed to a number of challenges, and the significance of different challenges differs among projects. To prepare for these challenges, project managers may benefit from assessing them at an early stage of the project. This paper presents a method that can be used to assess product development challenges in terms of technological and market uncertainty, product and production complexity, and geographical and organizational dispersion. Project managers can use the results from such assessments to justify preventive action, negotiate resources and specifications, and devise processes that fit the specific characteristics of individual development projects.

    Abstract [en]

    The establishment of low cost production facilities in emerging economies in Asia and Eastern-Europe has resulted in an increased organizational and geographical separation of product development and production processes. This paper elaborates on the complexity of the product development to production interface in dispersed environments and describes two different logics underlying the coordination of the product development to production transition in relation to interface complexity. The paper is based on two case studies of in total three different projects. It is argued that product/process related factors as well as organizational/geographical related factors are important in determining interface complexity. Further, a high degree of interface complexity calls for a predominant knowledge integration logic complemented with some measures of standardization in the product development to production interface. A low degree of interface complexity may be managed by a predominant task partitioning logic complemented with some integration measures.

    Abstract [en]

    The European Commission has identified waste of electrical and electronic equipment as one major waste stream and aims at the reduction of the environmental impacts. The result has been the WEEE and RoHS directives, which have come into force in February 2003. The grEEEn project (running from 1. January 2001 to 31. December 2003) has already anticipated the requirements of these directives and developed the method presented in this paper; covering environmental, economic and legal assessment at the same time. The results from the first application of the grEEEn method on an electronic device for the automotive sector are presented. Subsequently, the assessment of the method in the case study regarding the possibility to achieve a combined analysis of environmental and economic impact as well as fulfillment of the directives and essential features for the design methods are performed. Potentials for future research are summarised in the concluding remarks.

    Managing internal technology transfer in complex product development2008Inngår i: European Journal of Innovation Management, ISSN 1460-1060, E-ISSN 1758-7115, Vol. 11, nr 3, s. 349-365Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The purpose of this article is to illustrate how the characteristics of complex product systems pose specific managerial challenges onto the transfer of new technology from technology development to product development.

    Design/methodology/approach – The research relies on comparative case studies involving three cases of internal technology transfer processes in the development of electrical equipment and telecommunication systems.

    Findings – The research findings suggest that managerial decisions on internal technology transfer should be guided by a contingency framework rather than general procedures and tools.

    Research limitations/implications – Since the research is restricted to a limited number of case studies, additional studies are required to validate the findings.

    Practical implications – The study results indicate that in cases of complex product development, there is a need for a more integrated view on technology and product development, than what is commonly described in the literature.

    Originality/value – This article complements previous studies of the management of internal technology transfer processes, which primarily have addressed mass producing industries.

    Abstract [en]

    Previous research suggests that, despite a desire to introduce environmental concerns into New Product Design, many companies in the northwest of England have not done so. In order to understand more about why companies do or do not take on sustainability methodologies, an entirely new and rigorous approach was taken. This paper therefore presents the results of a questionnaire investigating the up-take of Eco/Sustainable Design in manufacturing companies in Sweden – a country that might be considered more environmentally progressive than the UK – and discusses them alongside the results of an identical questionnaire in the UK. The results are presented in the context of risk and risk aversion/management – in particular the risk associated with taking on board Design for Sustainability as a design method or a company strategy.

    It is found that there is no clear “winner” in sustainability between UK and Swedish engineering companies; there is encouraging news in both countries, with a desire to practice sustainability, but some that is not so good with the number of companies that actually implement relevant methodologies. It is apparent that there are still hindrances and perceived risks preventing companies taking sustainability fully on board, despite the recognition that sustainability is a “good thing”; the importance of the implementation of sustainability has not yet been fully grasped by industry and by those with the responsibility required to effect any changes.

    Interface challenges and managerial issues in the industrial innovation process2014Inngår i: Journal of Manufacturing Technology Management, ISSN 1741-038X, E-ISSN 1758-7786, Vol. 25, nr 2, s. 218-239Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to provide a comprehensive overview of challenges related to interfaces in industrial innovation processes, together with suggestions on how these interface challenges can be managed. The paper investigates similarities and differences between the interfaces and identified challenges in terms of required managerial issues.

    Design/methodology/approach: The result presented in this paper is based on in-depth case studies of ten product development projects from five different manufacturing firms in Sweden. The empirical results are supplemented with results from a review of relevant literature.

    Findings: To manage the interface challenges market uncertainty, technological uncertainty, product complexity and/or degree of change in product, production complexity and/or degree of change in production, geographical and/or organisational dispersion between technology development and product development, and between product development and production, it was found that several issues have to be considered. Most of the identified managerial issues concern transfer synchronisation, transfer management and transfer scope. The authors have shown that despite many differences between the different phases in the innovation process, a quite concordant picture emerges when it comes to how to manage interface challenges.

    Practical implications: The classification of managerial issues into transfer synchronisation, transfer management and transfer scope provides an overview of areas that need to be addressed to manage interface challenges during the industrial innovation process. This knowledge provides some guidance for managers aiming at a smooth transition process, from technology development to production.

    Originality/value: By addressing both the interface between technology development and product development, and between product development and production in the same study, the authors have been able to provide a comprehensive overview of managerial issues related to interfaces challenges in industrial innovation processes in manufacturing firms.
