Industry 4.0 ur ett teknikadoptionsperspektiv : En fallstudie på Sandvik Coromant (Swedish)
Abstract [sv]

Produktionsindustrin står just nu inför den fjärde industrirevolutionen där en ökad grad avanslutning och datastyrd produktion har möjligheten att skapa självoptimerande fabriker därmaskiner och system kommunicerar automatiskt i realtid. Införandet av ny teknik kan skapa storaförändringar men även konkurrensfördelar för organisationer, vilket även är fallet för Industri 4.0.Syftet med studien var att identifiera vilka faktorer som påverkar införandet av Industri 4.0 hostillverkande företag och hur problem inom automatiserad cellproduktion kan reduceras genom attintroducera Industri 4.0 koncept. Studien utfördes som en fallstudie hos Sandvik Coromant därinterna observationer och intervjuer utfördes. Dessutom intervjuades fem externa organisationerverksamma inom industriell digitalisering.Studien visade att det finns olika faktorer som påverkar införandet av Industri 4.0, kategoriseradei tekniska, organisatoriska och marknadsmässiga faktorer. För de tekniska faktorerna harsmåskaliga applikationer, ökad transparens genom anslutning av enheter och en ökad integrationav olika informationssystem en positiv effekt på införandet av industri 4.0. För att möjliggörainförandet i organisatoriska sammanhang måste produktionsorganisationer skaffa digitalakompetenser, integrera sin IT-organisation i sin produktion samt förändra sin kultur och inställningtill Industri 4.0. Dessutom är standardisering, skapande av digitala ekosystem och IT-säkerhet deviktigaste marknadsaspekterna som påverkar införandet av Industri 4.0.Hos Sandvik Coromant har elva problem identifierats som kan reduceras med införandet avkoncept från Industri 4.0. Studien föreslår att anslutning, visualisering och dataanalys används föratt reducera dessa problem.

Abstract [en]

The fourth industrial revolution is emerging, where connection and data driven production has thepotential to create self-optimizing factories, in which machines and systems can communicate inreal-time. However, adopting new technologies can impose big changes but also create competitiveadvantages for organisations, which is certainly the case of Industry 4.0.The purpose of the study was to identify what main factors that affects the adoption of Industry4.0 for production organisations and how problems in automated production cells could bereduced by introducing Industry 4.0 concepts. The study was performed as a case study at SandvikCoromant, where observations and interviews were conducted. In addition, five externalorganisations specialized in industrial digitalization were interviewed.The study found that there are various factors affecting the adoption of Industry 4.0 categorizedinto technological, organisational and external/environmental factors. In terms of technology,small scale applications, increased transparency through connection and an increased integrationof information systems have positive effect on the adoption of Industry 4.0. In organisationalcontext, production organisations must acquire digital competence, integrate their IT organisationinto their production and change the culture and attitude towards the adoption of Industry 4.0.Furthermore, standardization, creation of ecosystem and IT security are the mainexternal/environmental aspects which affect Industry 4.0 adoption.At Sandvik Coromant, eleven problems were identified which has the potential to be reduced by implementing concepts of Industry 4.0. The study proposes use of connectivity, visualization, dataanalysis to reduce these problems.
