Purpose and goal

The main objectives were to increase efficiency, measurability and management of production and to integrate sustainability work at floor level by use of suitable KPIs. The goal is to (1) support reduction to a core set important KPIs (2) choose or develop the appropriate KPIs for its intended purpose, (3) right visualization of KPIs to support fact-based decisions (4) identify dependencies between KPIs (5) develop and identify KPIs measuring sustainability at floor level. These goals have been achieved together within the project team.

Expected results and effects

The project have contributed with development and implementations of new methods and KPIs. In case studies with companies, e.g. new KPIs for measuring material efficiency and manual work have been developed. Methods for visualizing variation in KPIs with increased quality in decision making improvements have been developed and implemented. Packaging of results for dissemination to SMEs and the handbook from the project are expected to provide insights and effects even outside the project team for increased efficiency and sustainability in measurement and control of production.

Planned approach and implementation

Initially the project partners (3 universities, 1 institute and 8 companies) together performed a State of the Art analysis of the structure and content in the partner companies´ Business Performance Measurement Systems (BPMS). Based on these results and the companies´ individual challenges and motivation, a total of 12 company case studies with different focus have been conducted. Discussing challenges, sharing experiences and disseminating results during 10 project group workshops, resulted in a handbook for the development of sustainable and resource-efficient BPMS.

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