|Challenge-Driven Innovation – Stage 1 initiation
Purpose and goal
The aim of the project has been to map and compile what actions are required to ensure the efficient and sustainable production of electric drivelines in Sweden. The project has identified a proposal for a solution consisting mainly of (1) rapid development methodology, (2) reconfigurable production (3) Virtual Production Development. Human perspectives, structures, skills and gender equality are naturally integrated into the various sub-solutions. Prerequisites for the implementation of a step 2 have also been compiled. A well-functioning consortium has been formed.
Expected results and effects
The project partners included in Step 1 and the additional parties in Step 2 are well prepared to take the challenge and develop the sub-solutions for a future implementation. Preparations are being made for the continued work by launching a development lab at the Assar Industrial Innovation Arena, where the project partners are offered particularly good opportunities for innovative collaboration. Within the project, knowledge requirements have been identified, partial solutions have been described, and plans and logic for a continued collaborative project have been compiled.
Planned approach and implementation
In addition to continuous contacts, the consortium has had monthly project meetings in which collaboration and follow-up were linked to the work packages. This has resulted in a consortium with good conditions for continued work being formed. Information is shared with great trust and the project partners can therefore cooperate with sensitive information in a way that really promotegood ideas. From the perspective of gender equality, the project has always been within a 40/60 gender share, and participation from EDCS has helped to highlight gender equality.
