Industrialization within SMEs – Identification of work processes and challenges (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med rapporten var att beskriva och analysera hur små och medelstora företag, SMF, från Sverige arbetade med industrialisering av nya produkter i sina produktionssystem, och hur SMF arbetade och kopplade digitalisering och hållbarhet till industrialiseringsprocessen. En kvalitativ studie genomfördes vilken inkluderade 9 respondenter från 7 olika företag. Genomgående har en litteraturstudie genomförts, där resultatet från intervjuerna jämfördes och analyserades mot den teoretiska bakgrunden från litteraturstudien. Resultatet visade att samtliga av de studerade företagen arbetade med industrialisering på ett liknande sätt och att företagen hade liknande förhållningssätt till hållbarhet. Det fanns skillnader i hur de studerade företagen arbetade med digitalisering, där några av företagen såg stora möjligheter och där några ansåg att digitalisering inte var speciellt användbart i deras verksamhet. Utvecklingssområden observerades i industrialiseringsprocessen och förbättringsförslag gavs över hur industrialiseringen skulle kunna utvecklas.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to describe and analyze how small and medium sized enterprises, SME, from Sweden worked with industrialization of new products in their production systems and how SME worked with digitalization and sustainability in connection to the industrialization process. A qualitative study was conducted which included nine interviews with respondents from seven companies. Simultaneously a literature study on industrialization was conducted and the results from the interviews were compared and analyzed with the theory. The results showed that all the studied companies worked with industrialization in a similar fashion, that the companies had a similar approach to sustainability, and that there were differences in how the companies worked with digitalization. Some of the studied companies saw great opportunities, and some described that digitalization were not particularly useful. The study concluded that there were areas of improvement and gave suggestions on how to improve the industrialization process.
