Production Systems

The division of Production Systems works with the sustainability and competitiveness of industrial production systems. The research area is system-oriented and requires knowledge about both the system as a whole and its separate components, for example humans, automation and processes. The research highlights the different stages of a production system’s life cycle, i.e. planning, design, commissioning, operation, maintenance and reuse. Methods and research findings are generic, with applications within various industries, such as automotive, aerospace, processing and mining industries.
