Peter Almström

Docent at Chalmers, Technology Management and Economics, Supply and Operations Management

Peter Almström is an associate professor in Production analysis. The research is based on the experiences from the application of the PPA method (Productivity Potential Assessment). The research is focused on Productivity Management in the manufacturing industry and other branches such as health care. This includes performance measures for sustainable production and issues concerning management control of operations. A special interest is analysis of manual work. Peter teaches foremost in Production management, Productivity management, and Work place analysis and design. He is a board member of several companies and in the Nordic MTM Association.Watch a short movie where Peter presents his research
