Humle – Human Perspective, Machine-Learning ERP-systems

Expected results is related to demonstrating the logic of and demands on (1) future ERP-systems and (2) work organization that will enable both flexibility of manufacturing and a human view on flexible hours and task depending on skills and knowledge of the manufacturing line. The results can be applicable in the manufacturing industry and have potential to provide great value to the Swedish industry.

Sensible Value Chain: Material Flows, Roles and Circular Economy – SCARCE


Circular Economy, Digitalization, Value Chain

SCARCE will investigate the needs, possibilities and obstacles in value chains up- and down-stream from a focal SME company. SCARCE will explore what data to measure and visualize, and how this data can enable more automated execution, as well as, more dynamic and proactive planning of production capacity and material flows across the companies in the value chain. In addition, we will study organizational capabilities, especially the future human role, for implementing and managing in a digital and data-driven value chain.

Positioning technology for the heavy manufacturing industry


Automation, Communication, Digitalization, Security, Working Enviroment

The project aims at radically improving the working environment and the employee security within the heavy manufacturing industries by using and adapting the latest technology for low and ultraprecise positioning and decision support systems. The target is to increase security and safety by adapting the decision-support and positioning system for the heavy manufacturing industries.

Virtual PaintShop – Simulation of Oven Curing


Digitalization, FFI, Simulation

The paintshop is often a bottleneck in production and the processes are fine-tuned based on testing on numerous prototypes. To meet the future demands there is a great need to improve the product preparation process. The aim is to develop methods, techniques and software, and supporting measurement methodology, for simulation of paint curing in IR and convective ovens. The goal is to assist the industry to further develop and optimize their surface treatment to be more energy and cost efficient; to have a shorter lead time in product development; and to give a higher product quality.
