1. Production Disturbance Management - The role of technology and managerial approaches in creating resilient production systems
Sammanfattning : We live in a time that makes it clear the need of creating resilient production systems. To do so, it is necessary to efficiently and effectively manage production disturbances. Nevertheless, manufacturing companies have a very hard time thriving in this context. Mainly due to production disturbances, half their manufacturing capacity goes unused. LÄS MER
2. Production Ergonomics: Identifying and managing risk in the design of high performance work systems
Sammanfattning : Poor ergonomics in production systems can compromise performance and cause musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which pose a huge cost to society, companies, and afflicted individuals. This thesis presents a research trajectory through the problem space by: 1) Identifying and quantifying workplace risk factors for MSDs, 2) Identifying how these risks may relate to production strategies, and 3) Developing an approach to integrating ergonomics into a companies’ regular development work.

Sammanfattning : Competitive systems for manufacturing, especially assembly systems, have to cope with frequent changes of external as well as internal demands. A proactive behaviour in an assembly system should make it capable of rapid changes and have an ability to handle frequent changes and disturbances. LÄS MER
4. Pilot Production and Manufacturing Start-up in the Automotive Industry. Principles for Improved Performance
Sammanfattning : The dissertation is based on experiences from Volvo Car Corporation and examines pilot production and manufacturing start-up, processes that are here combined under the rubric final verification of product and production system. The purpose of this dissertation is to study pilot production and manufacturing start-up in order, first, to identify and analyze factors affecting final verification performance and, secondly, to develop general principles for how final verification performance can be improved.

5. On Reduction of Production Disturbances in Manufacturing Systems Based on Discrete-Event Simulation
Sammanfattning : Improved efficiency in manufacturing systems to achieve increased output and thus reduced production disturbances is a vital area. DES (Discrete-Event Simulation) can visualize and study the dynamic issues related to total efficiency in manufacturing systems. A methodology for production disturbance reduction is presented.
