A KKS-Prospect project.
The aim of the project is to explore the possibilities of increasing the prerequisites for innovation-oriented work as a part of lean-production, and further, support the industrial partners’ innovation capabilities as part of respectively lean production-system.
Three research questions are addressed:
RQ1: What kind of inhibitors arises when integrating innovative solutions (“new rooms” for innovation) in a lean production system, and, how are these inhibitors handled in the participating units?
RQ2: To what extent and in what ways are there synergies between lean-oriented work and innovation-oriented work within a lean production system?
RQ3: What kind of tools (or models) can be used in lean-production units to successfully identify, develop and integrate innovative solutions (“new rooms” for innovation) in the product system?
