Late engineering changes: principles for avoiding late engineering changes during the start-up phase based on empirical findings from Volvo Car Corporation

Abstract [en]

This paper is the Master Thesis Report on Late Engineering Changes – Principles for avoiding late engineering changes during the start-up phase based on empirical findings from Volvo Car Corporation, which has been conducted in VolvoTorslanda plant located in Gothenburg, Sweden. By studying closely the new Volvo V70 model data has been collected on engineering changes (EC) implemented during the ramp-up phase, referred to as late engineering changes. An in-depth analysis of the specific problems provides the reader with a closer view of the engineering change order process of this case. The feedback process between Development and Production Departments as well as the knowledge transfer were analysed. In order to improve work methods, control the impact of an LEC and avoid some of the engineering changes faced during the ramp-up phase, several recommendations are proposed.
