    Factory-in-a-box - Demonstrating the next generation manufacturing provider2008In: Manufacturing systems and technologies for the new frontier / [ed] Mamoru Mitsuishi, Kanji Ueda and Fumihiko Kimura, Springer London , 2008, p. 341-346Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Meeting customer demands require manufacturing systems with a high degree of flexibility, low-cost/low-volume manufacturing skills, as well as short delivery times. On top of these challenges, there is a gigantic need within industry for technologies and strategies that will reduce CO(2) emissions globally. In this challenging environment there is a need to identify and develop new and improved manufacturing capabilities within the manufacturing industry. The Factory-in-a-Box concept consists of standardized production modules that are e.g. installed in a container and transported by truck or by train. The concept has been developed, exemplified and realized in five industrial demonstrators developed by researchers together with competitive manufacturing companies in Sweden such as ABB Robotics, Bombardier and Pharmadule. The objective of this paper is to discuss the possibility of realizing a Product Service System (PSS) using the results from the Factory-in-a-Box project.

    Abstract [en]

    Long term growth and future jobs in society rely on that industry is able to realize new sustainable product ideas and develop these to profitable products in the market. This encompasses both short time-to-market and continuous development and adaption of existing products and processes to improve productivity. Innovative skills are required in both product/service development and in product/service introduction. Thus, there is a need for new innovative methods and models that supports and strengthens industry in generating new ideas and realizing these into successful products and improved processes. This paper discusses and compares engineering design, innovation, and design. The paper argues that there is a need to integrate the disciplines and work practices of innovation and design in the engineering design field and to build multi-disciplinary environments to be successful in research, education and in industry. A conceptual framework for innovation and design inspired product realization is presented in the paper.

    Lean Automation: Requirements and Solutions for Efficient use of Robot Automation in the Swedish Manufacturing Industry2011In: International Journal of Engineering Research & Innovation, ISSN 2152-4165, Vol. 3, no 2, p. 36-43Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Globalization, demographic changes, and environmental challenges put a strong pressure on European manufacturing industry and increase demands on resource efficiency, sustainable manufacturing, innovative products and individualized products. Today, Swedish manufacturing in mature traditional sectors is increasingly migrating to low-wage countries such as China and India. There is a strong need for the manufacturing industry in Sweden to enhance the ability to develop and manufacture products competitively. One way could be through an increased level of automation and increased use of industrial robotics. However, robot automation investments are in many cases, regarded as too expensive and too technically advanced, especially within small and medium sized enterprises. The objective of this paper is to investigate requirements as well as possible solutions for efficient use of robot automation in the Swedish manufacturing industry. Results from two research projects are presented. In the first project, requirements on automation solutions within small and medium sized manufacturing companies have been analyzed. The second project has investigated and developed possible solutions for increased reconfigurability of robotic systems enabling production of different products and simple configuration to handle future product variants without large additional investments.

    Factory-In-a-Box – Mobile Production Capacity on Demand2007In: International Journal of Modern Engineering, ISSN 1930-6628, Vol. 8, no 1, p. 12-26Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Change and uncertainty dominate today’s business environment. Meeting customer demands require a high degree of flexibility, low-cost/low volume- manufacturing skills, and short delivery times. In this highly competitive environment there is a great need to identify and develop unique manufacturing capabilities within industry. This paper will present an ongoing research project in Sweden called Factory-in-a-Box with the objective to develop mobile production capacity on demand. The Factory-in-a-Box concept consists of standardized production modules that are installed in e.g. a container and transported by e.g. a truck or by train. The modules may rapidly be combined into production systems that can be reconfigured for a new product and/or scaled to handle new volumes. The key features of this futuristic production system concept are flexibility, mobility, and speed. In the research project five fully operative demonstrators have been developed and implemented in close cooperation between different academic and industrial partners in Sweden.

    Supporting production system development through the Obeya concept2012In: IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology: IFIP WG 5.7 International Conference, APMS 2012, Rhodes, Greece, September 24-26, 2012, Revised Selected Papers, Part I, Springer, 2012, p. 653-660Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Manufacturing Industry as an important part of European and Swedish economy faces new challenges with the daily growing global competition. An enabler of overcoming these challenges is a rapid transforming to a value-based focus. Investment in innovation tools for production system development is a crucial part of that focus which helps the companies to rapidly adapt their production systems to new changes. Those changes can be categorized to incremental and radical ones. In this research we studied the Obeya concept as a supporting tool for production system development with both of those approaches. It came from Toyota production system and is a big meeting space which facilitates communication and data visualization for a project team. Four lean companies have been studied to find the role of such spaces in production development. Results indicate a great opportunity for improving those spaces and their application to radical changes in production development projects.

    On the Application of Discrete-event Simulation in Production2013In: Advances in Sustainable and Competitive Manufacturing Systems: 23rd International Conference on Flexible Automation & Intelligent Manufacturing / [ed] A. Azevedo, Springer, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The current fierce competition within the manufacturing industry throughout the world is a result of globalisation and dynamic changes in the market. This new era within the production world requires shorter lead times, integrated logistics, capabilities regarding handling changes in product volumes and variety, as well as conformity to environmental rules and regulations legislated by governments and organizations. Apparently, the multitude of variables needed to solve problems complicates the decision-making process. In order to provide solutions for complex problem solving within production development which include many variables and a certain amount of uncertainty there is a need for robust decision making tools. Discrete-event simulation (DES) is one of the virtual tools that can be used as a support for decision-making for production related problems. The current paper addresses challenges which cause low utilization of DES in industry along with a framework for handling those challenges and performing DES projects in an effective and efficient way.

    Enabling Changeability in Manufacturing System Design by adopting a Life Cycle Perspective2009In: Proceedings of 3rd International Conference on Changeable, Agile, Reconfigurable and Virtual Production, 2009, p. 612-621Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An industrial need is to develop and operate changeable manufacturing systems that easily can be changed according to customer requirements, production volumes, and new product generations. Such a manufacturing system needs to be developed with the manufacturing footprint in mind, comprising solutions at a conceptual and technical level that can be standardized and duplicated for new geographical locations. This demands the mindset and the incentives of the manufacturing industry to define and implement a life cycle approach when designing, thinking in system generations and recycling of solutions. It requires an integrated development process of the product and the manufacturing system with conscious planning of a ‘manufacturing systems portfolio’ that corresponds to the product portfolio. These are issues addressed in this paper with the objective to investigate available methods or tools for manufacturing system design, how they correspond to the product portfolio, and how they support life cycle perspective.

    Increasing the Impact of Industry-Academia Collaboration through Co-Production2019In: Technology Innovation Management Review, ISSN 1927-0321, E-ISSN 1927-0321, Vol. 9, no 4, p. 37-47Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Increased competition and globalization motivate us to join forces to enhance the impact of the research conducted. Collaboration between organizations with different views can, however, be difficult to manage and needs awareness and skills to meet different expectations. This article will consider both a mutual industrial and academic perspective into the development of action research and, in six research project cases, empirically explore how the impact can be enhanced by considering certain key factors in the research process. How the phases of problem formulation, methodology, and results are managed is critical for the success of a collaboration and, thereby, its impact. Counter-productive forces that could dilute the progress over time need to be considered given that combining practical relevance and scientific rigour comes with challenges.

    The concept of mobile manufacturing2007In: Journal of manufacturing systems, ISSN 0278-6125, E-ISSN 1878-6642, Vol. 26, no 3-4, p. 188-193Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It is increasingly important to locate manufacturing activities close to the most relevant competence or the most interesting market. The possibility to easily and quickly move manufacturing capacity is thus becoming more important. Hence, the demand for mobile manufacturing has increased and requires solutions for a quick, rational, and economical reconfiguration of the production system. Within the research project Factory-in-a-Box, the concept of mobile manufacturing has been investigated through the development and implementation of five operative demonstrators. This paper will analyze the concept of mobile manufacturing by presenting the results from the Factory-in-a-Box research project and its demonstrator development. The objective is to clarify when mobile manufacturing capacity can be a proper solution to use as well as to discuss future possible industrial manufacturing applications. The results show that there is a large range of applications for the concept of mobile manufacturing and that two dimensions – the geographical distance and the organizational distance – can be used to classify the mobility within manufacturing systems.

    Flexibility Needs and Enablers in Assembly Systems2013In: 22nd International Conference on Production Research, ICPR 2013, International Foundation for Production Research (IFPR) , 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the research presented in this paper has been to analyze flexibility needs and enablers in assembly systems. The methodology used for the research has been a literature review and a case study at a Swedish manufacturing company. Flexibility as a competitive factor has been shown to be needed in order to satisfy the changing demands, at low cost and with delivery precision. The level of customization and changes in volume also increases the flexibility needs. The results from the case study indicate that there are four flexibility enablers in assembly systems: capacity and production planning, production development, material supply, and work organization. The needs of flexibility should be considered during the design process of the assembly system to respond to changes in product variants and production volumes in a cost-effective way.

    Flexibility in Lean Mixed Model Assembly Lines2014In: IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology: Volume 440, Issue PART 3, Springer, 2014, Vol. 440, p. 224-231Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the research presented in this paper has been to characterize flexibility in lean mixed model assembly lines through exploring mechanisms used to achieve flexibility. The study combines a literature review and a multiple case study in two manufacturing companies. Scenarios of volume, mix and operation flexibility, as well as flexibility to introduce or remove products were studied. The results showed that to achieve flexibility related to these scenarios other kinds of flexibilities were used. Common mechanisms to achieve flexibility have been found in the two cases. A characterization of mixed model assembly lines regarding flexibility will be discussed.

    Developing idPeo –- A Multidiciplinary Approach to Product Realization2009In: ICED 09 - the 17th international conference on engineering design, vol 6: design methods and tools, 2009, p. 67-77Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    On the background of a changing industrial landscape and key elements of the realization of complex integrated products, this paper discuss and explore an "innovative" approach towards product concept development methodologies by focusing on creativity, multidisciplinary teams, and decision-making. Throughout 2006-2009 a product realization methodology, the idPeo methodology, has been developed in a university/industry collaboration milieu. Based on a briefly reported literature review, the paper presents the methodology, briefly the three generations of conducted cases and the evolution of the methodology over the years. It is argued that the approach for innovative product realization in concept development, if implemented correctly also into companies' product development process, could contribute to increased flexibility, creativity and tolerance for change. It could also decrease lead time, increase product performance, and decrease uncertainty.

    Manufacturing competition through the Factory-in-a-Box concept2007In: Proceedings of the 18th Annual POM Conference, 2007Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Today’s business environment is dominated by change and uncertainty, and global competition is diminishing defined markets. Manufacturing success and survival are becoming more difficult to sustain and it is recognized that low cost and high quality alone are not enough to sustain firm’s competitive position in market place. Market uncertainty and frequent introductions of new products has created a growing need for responsive manufacturing systems. Thus, there is a growing demand for well-formulated and implemented manufacturing strategies which provide necessary support for developing and sustaining relevant order-winners and qualifiers, which enable rapid product realization as well as flexibility and reconfigurability within operations. The objective of this paper is to analyze and investigate flexible and reconfigurable production systems from a manufacturing strategy point of view. An ongoing research project in Sweden called Factory-in-a-Box will be presented which is one initiative in this area.

    Automation from lean perspective: Potentials and challenges2013In: Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Manufacturing Research (ICMR2013), Cranfield University, UK, 19th – 20th September 2013, International Conference on Manufacturing Research (ICMR) , 2013, p. 437-442Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The competitive climate of production and high labour cost, motivate western companies to use technologies like automation as a mean to increase manufacturing competitiveness. On the other hand companies are aware about cost reductive policies like lean production which has shown noticeable achievement, consequently some manufacturers tend to follow such system. In this situation, in order to have lean enterprise, it is vital to find a clear picture of challenges and potentials of implementing automation within a lean environment. So, finding the right level and type of automation becomes vital for companies, and achieving this is not possible without a lean development of automation. The paper presents an overview of automation development from a lean perspective. The focus is on manufacturing and a case study in the automotive industry is presented. Challenges and potentials of automation are pinpointed and some suggestions regarding automation development is given.
