Abstract :

For many years Norwegian small-medium enterprises (SMEs) have attempted to improve their manufacturing automation performance in a view to achieving global competitiveness and operational excellence. This talk describes the automated manufacturing systems activities at the learning factories in the Gj├?┬Şvik region research cluster. The talk describes the philosophy, methods and experiences that underlie the activities undertaken. The learning factory is primarily designed for the automotive industry, but has proven to be useful for most SMEs who want effective value creation both in manufacturing and services.
