Abstract [en]

There are places in industry intended for communication regarding continuous improvement. This paper presents an observation of the state of practice today in one large and two medium-sized companies. It explores spatial design in

continuous improvement areas and how spatial design may hinder or support communication regarding

improvements. Although implementation and development of lean manufacturing is a subject for research in an

industrial context, the spatial design is not well developed as a supporting variable. Computers or digital

visualisation tools are not used in the improvement areas of the studied companies, even though the companies have

a highly automated production. The improvement areas serve as a complement to the integration of manufacturing

through computers. The improvement areas enhance the possibility to develop shared knowledge of how the

production works and to coordinate actions. The architectural and semiotic analysis of the spatial design for

continuous improvement in industry implies a different perspective and includes aspects of cognition, information,

communication and treats how and what the elements in the improvement areas communicate.

Abstract [en]

The main concern of this licentiate thesis is to discuss how built space is used for communication in the manufacturing industry, from a visual communication perspective. The thesis presents and develops the notion of 'communication space' and presents a model to describe the relation between different factors in the communication space.

In a multiple case study, six different cases from the manufacturing industry are described and analyzed to highlight how built space is used for communication in a lean production context. Research results on how built spaces such as improvement places, meeting places and a development workshop affect improvement processes and communication are presented. What the studied improvement areas, meeting places and workshop can be said to communicate about the improvement processes is analyzed.

The research results show that the built spaces in manufacturing industry are used for communication on two levels, both as places for interaction between employees and as a part of a communication process. The study also shows a relation between architecture from a specific time and the relation to the improvement work in the industrial context. How the results can be used to facilitate communication in the built spaces used for improvement processes in manufacturing industry is suggested in the thesis.
