Abstract [en]

Given that aligning supply chain strategies with changing productcharacteristics across the phases of the product life cycle is increasinglyimportant, this study investigates the changes in supply and demand uncertaintywhen a product enters the decline phase and how these changes in turn affectthe supply chain strategies applied. Based on four case studies, the analysisreveals that the uncertainties increase in three of four cases when the productenters the decline phase, and that the type of uncertainty, as well as the relatedchallenges, depends on the product’s initial uncertainty of supply and demand.This implies that companies need to redesign their supply chain strategiestowards either more lean or more agile supply chains, or combinations thereof,when the products are declining.

Abstract [en]

The use of Lean principles has long enabled the improvement of efficiency and competitiveness in manufacturing firms, but during the last decade, advanced digital and automated solutions have been more in the spotlight. It has been suggested by some authors that Lean and digitalisation are mutually exclusive, although most authors now agree that the two are indeed compatible. It thus seems that the most urgent question is not whether Lean and digital technologies can be combined, but rather how. This paper uses a large-scale survey of manufacturing units in Europe to explore the relationship between three types of Lean production practices and the use of digital technologies in production. The analysis shows that three types of Lean practices – Lean flow, Lean work organisation and Lean human resource management – are strongly associated with firms’ adoption of digital technologies in production by manufacturing firms. Based on the results it is suggested that, as a theoretical explanation, a firm’s experience of Lean may act as an absorptive capacity when adopting digital technologies. A number of practical explanations are also provided, e.g., that systematic improvement efforts are also beneficial when implementing digital technologies.

Abstract [en]

Lean production principles has for a long time been hailed as a solution for improving efficiency and competitiveness in manufacturing firms. Recently, however, advanced digital solutions have received more space in the spotlight. Does this mean that the era of Lean is over or just changed character? The purpose of this paper is to, based on a large scale survey of manufacturing units in Europe, explore the relationship between the use of Lean production practices and the technological practices associated with the use of digital technologies in production. The study shows that lean practices are strong predictors of firms’ introduction of digital technologies in production by manufacturing firms. The results indicate that lean, as defined in this paper, may indeed be a prerequisite for digital technologies used in production.

Abstract [en]

Many lean implementations fail; previous research suggests an important reason is that senior managers are unable to support the implementation. We investigate this problem by exploring senior managers' perspectives on lean implementation, aiming to identify possible obstacles to their support of implementation processes. The paper is based on an explorative case study at a global manufacturing company implementing lean. Interviews were performed with senior managers at the top two hierarchical levels, the president and area presidents. The analysis revealed four main obstacles: 1) competence development needs of senior management were not addressed; 2) the lean development initiative was not connected to company strategy; 3) key players within the organisation were initially not involved or tasked; 4) the initiative was not system wide. The results stress the importance of initial competence evaluation and development of senior management in lean development.
