Swedish production area has previously been defined and is still in need for some clarification. This paper gives an overview and draws conclusions about trends of aspects like number of authors, type of research methodology used, and research topics presented in the former SPS:s conferences. The aim of the paper is to describe practical phenomena using data from the 254 papers and the methodology used is statistical sampling. The empirical results show that there are mainly two research methodologies that dominate during the years of the conference, namely experimental design and case study.
