It is a consumer report for the Metal Workers Union (Metal in Swedish) at some Volvo plants. with who we have managed to create a long-term cooperation for further initiatives, like these touched upon in e.g. this publication and elsewhere.

The manuscript underlines an emerges of a sort of preliminary summarization of selected parts of our combined methods to analyse production systems (of combined data, collections of company data, interviews, questionnaire surveys, video-registration, etc.). For example, this has been carried out by means of constructions so-called schematised layouts (a more general function if the production system in question).
