Hantering av komplexa produktutveklingsprojekt : Ett analytiskt ramverk för komplex produktutveckling (Swedish)
Abstract [sv]

Under de senaste åren har produkterna blivit mer invecklade beträffande anslutningen, prestanda och funktionalitet. Därför är syftet av denna studie att undersöka hur komplexa system utvecklas och leds genom att genomföra fallstudie på olika svenska företag som utvecklar mekatroniska och cyber-fysiska system.

Resultatet av denna studie har lett till identifieringen av många utmaningar som de undersökta företagen har och som i sin tur har lett till framställningen av ett analytiskt ramverk som diskuterar hur och vad man bör göra för att utveckla komplexa produkter på ett effektivt sätt, så att onödig komplexitet i produktutvecklingen kan reduceras.

Abstract [en]

In recent years, products have become more complex in terms of connectivity, performance and functionality. Therefore, this study aims at studying how complex products are developed and managed through conducting multiple case studies at different Swedish companies that develop mechatronic or cyberphysical systems.

The results of this study is the identification of many challenges that the investigated companies have, which have led to a presentation of an analytical framework that discusses how complex product development projects can and should be managed in order to be efficient, in order to reduce unnecessary complexity in the way companies develop these complex products.
