Challenges for future production systems places strains on industrial companies, especially in terms of implementing new technology. 
Although the technology continues to develop, so does the need for new roles and new tasks. The key to meeting these challenges is to combine research on Humans and Automation to find the best solutions. 

Sandras research is in the field of Human-Automation Interaction with focus on supporting operators in complex production. She presented her dissertation in 2018, titled Towards increasing operator wellbeing and performance in complex assembly. With a background in automation engineering and a bachelor in psychology, her research is centred around how operators and workers experience and perceive automation solutions in the manufacturing industry and how digital tools can be designed to support them. The aim is to increase the efficiency and sustainability within production. Sandra has a special interest in assembly in the automotive industry and her vision is to make the complex simpler to understand through involvement, education, workshops or webinars.
Sandra leads the group Collaborative, flexible and value-creating automation and is a coordinator for the assembly production cluster.
Sandra also works with course and method development within digitalization and has written Smart Automation – seven methods for final assembly together with Åsa Fast-Berglund.

Selected ongoing projects:
  • SCARCE II - the sensible value chain. SCARCE står för Sensible Value Chain through Digitalised Planning, Material handling and Circular Economy
  • The robot lift (medbedömare)
  • Universal design for work places- manual assembly
  • edig, a knowledge platform for industrial digitalization, (editor).
  • Safe workplaces with increased automation and robotization in manufacturing companies - current state, analysis and strategy (contact: Magnus Widfeldt).
​Finished relevant projects:
  • Digitalization from a female perspective.
  • Virtual Machina, V-Machina, to make education for students and professionals more efficient through Virtual Reality (VR).
