How to improve productivity by 160%
Paper i proceeding, 2014

There is a large capacity increase potential in Swedish industry through increasing productivity of existing resources without investing in more machines or personnel. This article presents a case study where the capacity could increase more than 160% percent. This was proven by a test in running production. This tremendous increase was made possible through standardization and time setting of all work tasks. A new scheduling system was made up of product activity sequences based on a vast library of over 800 standardized generic activities.
