Production Management

Projekt Examples Production Management

The department of production management executed many different projects from very small companies to international companies with different production sites. Our mindset and approach for supporting these companies are centered around:

  • digestible steps that deliver results
  • new future oriented approaches with a strong linkage to the existing situation
  • latest research results as the base

 

The projects are delivered in a close corporation between the Professor and the Research Engineers. All research engineers have completed studies (BSc, MSc, Dr.) and practical experiences through different projects or working experiences in industrial companies.
