We develop new resource-efficient products and production. We contribute to new theory and knowledge on smart and competitive factories where humans and robots are working side by side.
Sustainable production is a main key to a sustainable society. Our focus is on optimisation of concepts to help companies produce better products faster and with fewer resources. This is accomplished through simulation techniques, new manufacturing and information technologies and advanced mathematics.
Production research at Chalmers stands out internationally as a result of our close collaboration with industry. Our strength is a profound understanding of conditions influencing industry, for example cost, quality, time and sustainability. An additional asset is our ability to perform research across industrial sectors and scientific areas, including collaboration between competing companies. This is rare from a global perspective.
