Production mirror - digital interaction in industrial environment

Reference number
Coordinator RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB - SONIC-PITEÅ
Funding from Vinnova SEK 350 000

Status Completed
Venture The strategic innovation programme for Production2030
Call Idea projects for new services for manufacturing industry

Important results from the project

The goal of the project was to generate ideas that illustrate how production workers can gain greater insight into production as a whole, to increase the sense of context, control and meaning. This is done by rethinking common modes of interaction and using new forms of technology, which enable production workers to easily interact and access digital content. The project has met the goal through a user-centered design process that has led to a mapping of needs linked to information and interaction, as well as the development and evaluation of three illustrated concepts.

Expected long term effects

The project has generated knowledge of production workers´ understanding of their role in complex production systems, and the connection to motivation. Furthermore, conclusions from the needs analysis are a good starting point for continued work. Out of the set of ideas generated, three concepts are illustrated, which are relevant to production environments and in their design include innovative thinking interactions, such as IoT, connected lighting, projection and visualization of data. According to the evaluation, the ideas have the potential to increase work motivation.

Approach and implementation

RISE has run a design process in which Lundqvist Trävaru´s staff were involved in three phases. The idea phase consisted of 1) Mapping information system 2) Workshop 3) Survey. The idea phase consisted of sessions where identified needs were intersected with new forms of technology. The concept phase consisted of 1) Illustrations, mock-ups 2) Presentation, feedback 3) Survey. The project was extended to allow more time for result compilation and presentation. The results were presented at the Katrineholm Conference in 2019, and will also be communicated to potential future partners.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
