    Abstract : Svensk tillverkningsindustri bidrar till ca 16 % (Statistics Sweden 2016) av bruttonationalprodukten och medverkar till att ca 900 000 av landets invånare har en anställning (Produktion2030 2016), vilket gör sektorn till en viktig del av Sveriges välfärdssystem. Forskningen syftar främst till att ge industrin verktyg för att analysera och utvärdera produktion för resurseffektivare och lönsammare tillverkning som även minskar miljöbelastningen. READ MORE
