About the seminar

To address the urgent environmental issues, we need more collaboration and develop our manufacturing system to be sustainable. But are our traditional development processes and decision models fully supporting us or holding us back?

In this talk, you will get a unique and honest insight into how Scania is developing its factories of tomorrow. We will spotlight our traditional ways of working with manufacturing system development and challenge the current development objectives.

Today, focus resides on our products and profits, but new manufacturing stakeholders can generate novel values. With a new mindset and holistic system approach, we can accelerate the transformation to a more sustainable digital industry. Design features like unselfish cross-functional collaboration and visit friendliness are two examples that will be explored.


We welcome a limited audience to join us physically for a seminar-lunch in the black-box room at KTH Södertälje / Södertälje Science Park, Kvarnbergagatan 12, Södertälje.

You will have the chance to network with other participants and meet our speaker. Lunch will be provided during the seminar.

Please specify your physical attendance in the form.
