Sustainable and Virtual Production

The research group Sustainable Production/Virtual Production Systems utilizes virtual tools to analyze and increase performance in production system contexts. The research within the group aims at applied science by developing methods and tools which utilizes discrete event simulation, 3D Visualization, scanning, augmented reality, data analysis, layout planning etc. to analyze and evaluate economics, environmental impacts, social interactions and situation awareness in a production system context. 

The production systems in specific ranges over many stages of a product lifecycle such as raw material extraction, transportation, manufacturing, use phase, service, recycling, end of life treatment etc. The production system could also be in different industrial settings such as automotive, food production, system providers, robotics, discrete parts manufacturing, chemical processes, recycling, aerospace industry etc.
