Resource efficient production

Industry challenge: To minimise the resource consumption and environmental impact of production systems and products.

  • Resource-efficient production is a prerequisite for manufacturing in a country such as Sweden, with high wages, high quality standards and high material costs.
  • Resources such as materials, people, energy, capital and time must be used efficiently in order for production to remain competitive.
  • Research and innovation aimed at resource-efficient manufacturing requires a holistic approach and affects all the lifecycle phases of products and production systems.
