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.
