Abstract [sv]

Att bedriva produktionsplanering speciellt i stora organisationer är komplicerat nu för tiden. Marknaderna blir alltmer komplexa; organisationerna behöver uppfinna på nytt, tillämpa nya strategier, och tillägna sig kunskap om flexibla tillvägagångssätt för att kunna bibehålla sin prestationsförmåga och konkurrenskraft. I detta sammanhang fyller ”System Engineering” koncept såsom ”Configuration” eller ”Change Management” viktiga roller som stödfunktioner.

I denna undersökning kombineras rön från litteratur med en fallstudie för att analysera dagens system och föreslå några IT-lösningar som kan implementeras i existerande organisationer. Andra viktiga begrepp som kravhantering, produktarkitektur eller PLM-system ligger också inom ramen för detta arbete. Personliga intervjuer, träningssessioner, expertmöten och annan informationssökningsteknik har även använts under de sex månaderna för att erhålla önskade resultat. Dessa resultat har både ett akademiskt och ett organisatoriskt värde, vilket ökar betydelsen av examensarbetet.

Abstract [en]

Engineering Management activities in big organizations are especially complicated nowadays. Markets are becoming more complex; organisations need to reinvent, adopt new strategies, and acquire agile approaches to maintain a competitive character. Because of that, System Engineering concepts like Configuration or Change Management play an essential role to support companies´ performance. In this investigation, existent literature is combined with a case study to analyse the current systems and propose certain IT solutions that can be implemented in real organisations. Other important concepts like Requirement Management, Product Architecture or PLM systems are also under the scope of the research. Personal interviews, training sessions, expert meetings, and other information finding techniques were used during six months to obtain the desired outcomes. These results have both an academic and an organisational validity, increasing the significance of the master thesis.
