Abstract [en]

In this study, the opportunities for automation in the poorly automated wood product industry are highlighted. This isaccomplished by conducting a qualitative interview study of suppliers and system integrators for industrial robots active in thisparticular industry sector. Five case companies are chosen in order to explore the unique dimensions responsible for successfulautomation implantation in wood product companies. Results show that a low understanding of automation opportunities, unclearrequirements specifications, and small production volumes are the main problems for suitable automation solutions. Althoughwood is a fragile and changeable material, existing technology allows its manipulation with industrial robots.
