    A lean perspective on servitization of manufacturing2011In: Proceedings of the POMS 22nd Annual Conference, Reno, April 29 - May 2, 2011., 2011Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Servitization of manufacturing is a fairly recent approach addressed in literature. The term is recognized as the process of creating value by integrating products with services. Servitization is supposed to contribute to a sustainable society through its potential to support dematerialization, i.e. reduction of materials used in production and consumption. Key aspects of lean are resource efficiency and customer-orientation. Though lean production has gained a high degree of attention, few studies have addressed the potential relationships between lean and servitization. Servitization is however not only relevant from a sustainability perspective, but can be regarded as “the next step” to create user value. This paper aims at providing a better understanding of the relationships between lean and servitization through an analysis of literature where the lean and servitization approaches are compared and contrasted. The underlying assumption is that a lean approach might support a manufacturing organization’s transition towards a servitization organization.

    Implications from introducing sustainability in manufacturing strategies2008In: Proceedings of the 19th Annual POM Conference, 2008Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Increasing focus on sustainability in society forces industrial companies to consider environmental impacts resulting from their activities. Unfortunately, research within the “environmental” domain has to a high degree evolved separately from the “manufacturing” domain, leading to poor understanding regarding how to manage environmental issues in a manufacturing context. To reduce this flaw, this paper takes the starting point in a manufacturing strategy perspective and analyses implications occurring from the inclusion of environmental issues in industrial companies. The paper suggests that concern for environmental issues influence more or less all of the manufacturing strategy decision criteria. Environmental concern may e.g. affect the decision on manufacturing process choice (e.g. new product technology may require new types of manufacturing processes) or on process technology (e.g. new manufacturing equipment are needed). Therefore, the paper concludes that it is paramount to consider environmental issues when formulating and effectuating the manufacturing strategy.

    Visual representations for communication in geographically distributed new product development projects2019In: Journal of engineering design (Print), ISSN 0954-4828, E-ISSN 1466-1837, Vol. 30, no 8-9, p. 385-403Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study addresses the role of visual representations in supporting communication between an R&D team and geographically distributed suppliers for a new product development (NPD) project. It specifically focuses on the design and use of visual representations as a feasible way for communication between the distributed actors when they face communication challenges originating from differences in skills in the English language, but also from differences in work experiences. Relying on empirical materials from a Swedish manufacturing company in the mechanical engineering industry, this paper makes the following contributions to the literature. First, it shows that visual representations are effective boundary objects able to support process-oriented and product-oriented communication in distributed NPD projects. Second, it illustrates that visual representations do not necessarily have to follow graphic design principles, but can still be effective if distributed actors share the same project context. Finally, it highlights the need for a dynamic and context-dependent perspective on communication in NPD projects.

    Supplier involvement in product development: Critical issues from a supplier perspective2015In: Proceedings of the 22nd EurOMA International Annual Conference, Neuchâtel, Switzerland, 26 June–1 July, 2015, International Annual EurOMA Conference, 2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) typically outsource the industrialization of components to suppliers. Hence, the OEMs are dependent on the suppliers’ capabilities to perform industrialization projects. However, suppliers often experience various difficulties when involved in the OEMs’ product development projects. Therefore, the aim of the paper is to explore challenges that suppliers face during industrialization projects, their causes and the effects. Actions to mitigate these challenges are further explored. Based on an in-depth single case study at a Swedish supplier from the metal components industry, the study resulted in seven challenging issues during industrialization projects from a supplier perspective.

    Bridging Geographically Distant R&D and Manufacturing2014In: Proceedings of the R&D Management Conference, Stuttgart, Germany, 3–6 June 2014., 2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Although important research has been carried out, knowledge on bridges between the R&D and manufacturing occupational communities in a cross - national context is lacking. Much of the research has emphasized on the different bridges - tools, object, practices, brokers designed by the company to bridge the occupational communities. To lesser extent scholars have observed the emergence of individuals who can assist in bridging occupational communities divided by the boundaries of language and national culture.

    Drawing on qualitative interviews with persons belonging to a Swedish large manufacturing company, this paper describes and examines the emergent role of an engineer from an R&D center in China as a mediator of the two occupational communities. Based on community of practice theory, this study regards R&D in Sweden and the manufacturing site in China as members of two interdependent occupational communities that struggle to communicate due to barriers created by geographical distance – i.e. language and cultural distance. The findings suggest that the mediator from the R&D center in China may serve as an appropriate organizational solution in situation where geographical distance exist. The mediator role provides not only technical support, but also helps to crate shared meanings and facilitates the communication between R&D in Sweden and the manufacturing site in China. This study contributes to the R&D management theory by addressing an effective way to facilitate cross-cultural communication between engineers that are geographically distant during new product development.

    Communication challenges in a product development project faced with culture and language differences: The Sweden/China case2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The results of the paper are derived from a longitudinal case study of a single product development project faced with high degrees of uncertainty and equivocality. The findings reveal that national and cultural difference between project team members affect the R&D-manufacturing interface as creating communication challenges. In this paper three communication challenges within the R&D-manufacturing interface in context of geographical distance were outlined: 1) clarity of transferred information; 2) intention to transfer information; 3) responsiveness to information received. Further, the study indicates that high degree of equivocality in the context of cultural and language differences can be handled not only by the use of rich communication media, but also by employing less-rich communication media such as e-mail, or “picture books”.

    Management of international manufacturing relocation projects of new and existing products2014In: Proceedings of the 21st EurOMA International Annual Conference, Palermo, Italy, 20 - 25 June, 2014, International Annual EurOMA Conference, 2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Many Scandinavian companies choose to invest in new manufacturing facilities in Central European or Asian countries. This complicates the production start-up of both existing and new products. This paper compares production start-ups of new and existing products in a new and off-shore manufacturing facility in Poland. Consequently, the aim is to enhance the understanding of factors critical to achieve the desired production start-up targets. The factors identified in the study are in line with the previous literature. Nonetheless, this study emphasizes on the factors related to people which turned to be of the most importance for the timely production start-up.

    R&D in Sweden and manufacturing in China: a study of communication challenges2014In: Journal of Manufacturing Technology Management, ISSN 1741-038X, E-ISSN 1758-7786, Vol. 25, no 2, p. 258-278Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to explore communication challenges related to geographic distance, with emphasis on differences in national culture and language between R&D and manufacturing engineers, in a development project faced with uncertainty and equivocality.

    Design/methodology/approach: The results originate from a longitudinal single-case study of a commercial product development project.

    Findings: Three communication challenges are identified: clarity of shared information, intention to share information, and responsiveness to information received. The challenges are strongly associated with differences in national culture and language. The study also indicates that the communication challenges cannot only be handled by the use of rich communication media, but also by employment of communication media of low richness such as e-mails or “picture books”.

    Research limitations/implications: The single-case study approach limits the ability to generalize the findings. Future research should thus focus on additional studies of geographically separated R&D and manufacturing.

    Originality/value: The results from the study provide important insights for the management of product development in geographically dispersed settings. The findings emphasize the need to consider potential differences in national culture and language within a product development team. Acknowledging these differences and managing them properly can support efficiency of product development projects.

    Integration of Suppliers’ Workflows in the OEMs’ New Product Development Process2018In: Procedia Manufacturing, E-ISSN 2351-9789, Vol. 25, p. 479-486Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This research explores integration of the suppliers’ workflows in the OEM’s new product development (NPD) process, to support the production ramp-up. Based on multiple-case study approach, incorporating both the OEM and the supplier perspective, this research explains critical aspects for the integration of suppliers’ workflows in the OEM’s NPD process, and when these aspects need to be addressed. The results show that face-to-face meeting on a project level, standardized work model, readiness of the component specifications, role of Supplier Quality Assurance (SQA) engineer, quality assurance document provided to the suppliers, etc. are critical aspects.
