Experimental Lab for the Development of Manufacturing Systems and Supply Chains


A Learning Lab has been established, and the project has resulted in principals and guidelines for developing company specified manufacturing scenarios and visions to enable the company to address future challenges. This entails an innovative and participatory process through which commonly shared images are developed of both the present situation and future mode of operation. Several company case projects have demonstrated the feasibility and usefulness of the approach. Key elements are the preparation of a script for workshops and seminars and the facilitation of the process. CIP project group: Professor Jens O. Riis, Assistant Professors Niels G.
