Learning and Production Improvements

Abstract [en]

The overall purpose of the thesis is to explore the role of learning in production improvement work.

The research questions are:

How does learning in production relate to investments in new machinery for existing processes and new processes?

How is learning in production related to using production improvement methods?

The answer to the first question is that regardless if the investment is in machinery for existing processes or new processes, learning plays an important role, both in the specification phase and in the production phase. In the specification/purchasing phase learning will lead to a better ability to specify the process equipment and to evaluate different supplier proposals. In the production phase learning can positively affect both the availability and the pace of the production process.

The findings concerning the second question is that to be able to use improvement methods they have to be learned, and by using the methods you learn. The methods facilitate learning. It is possible to learn and improve without methods but it is not possible to use improvement methods without learning them. The ability (and willingness) to learn is more fundamental than improvement methods. Therefore production improvement projects depend more on learning ability than on improvement methods.

When improving a production system investment in equipment and improvement methods are important. But there is a common decisive factor for both investments in equipment and improvement methods and that is the ability to learn.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to highlight the differences between technology driven change projects that fail and those who succeed. The main differences are the motivation among the employees and the companies ability to build knowledge and to a lesser extent management involvement.

Abstract [en]

Outsourcing has increased rapidly in volume and scope during the last 10 years (Bedford, 1996 and Bailey et al., 1998). There is a risk that new concept that has worked well in one business may not be successful when transplanted elsewhere (Cox, 1996) and massive outsourcing has in some cases has failed to achieve anticipated savings (Berggren & Bengtsson, 2004). This has led to that the outsourcing trend has weakened and there are several examples of companies that are insourcing. An activity, once outsourced is not so easily insourced again since the structures and conditions surrounding the activity has changed (Wasner, 1999). Because of this the description and analysis of insourcing cases is an interesting area to study. There is however very limited number of papers that build theoretical framework regarding insourcing so the theoretical base will be outsourcing theory.

Abstract [en]

Seven companies were studied with the purpose to discuss learning in production with regard to actual potential and course of action to realize the potential. The study shows that companies that focus on learning in production can reach significant improvements despite low input of resources with a payback time of often less than a year.

2006 (Engelska)Ingår i: 6th International CINet conference, "Continuous Innovatin - (Ways of) Making Things Happen", 2006Konferensbidrag, Publicerat paper (Refereegranskat)
Abstract [en]

It has been argued that continuous improvement is an introduction of different quality tools. In this empirical study the use of tools is very limited but the results are anyhow fairly OK. The results of different improvement groups vary substantially and the reason for this variation is mostly difference in knowledge and skill among the groups.
