Mikael Rosenqvist is an industrial PhD student who has worked in the automotive industry since 2001. He leads a project linking geometry assurance with production ergonomics. The aim is to develop a decision support for development of production strategies and manufacturing engineering in early phases. This enables analysis of consequences and calculation of costs related to defects in geometric and production ergonomic quality. By minimizing late quality improvement measures, industry can reduce both their environmental impact and their costs and improve the working environment for operators.
