    Kaikaku: Radical improvement in production2012In: WORLD ACADEMY OF SCIENCE, ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY, ISSN 2010-376X, no 69, p. 758-765Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Considering today’s increasing speed of change, radical and innovative improvement - Kaikaku, is a necessity parallel to continuous incremental improvement - Kaizen, especially for SME’s in order to attain the competitive edge needed to be profitable. During 2011, a qualitative single case study with the objective of realizing a kaikaku in production has been conducted. The case study was run as a one year project using a collaborative approach including both researchers and company representatives. The case study was conducted with the purpose of gaining further knowledge about kaikaku realization as well as its implications. The empirical results provide insights about the great productivity results achieved by applying a specific kaikaku realization approach. However, it also sheds light on the difficulty and contradiction of combining innovation management and production system development.

    Towards a methodology for Kaikaku realization2011In: Proceedings of the 4th International Swedish Production Symposium, SPS11 / [ed] Jan-Eric Ståhl, Lund, Sweden, 2011Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In today's globally competitive market where the speed of change is increasing it is of great importance that manufacturing companies are striving to achieve improvements in their production systems resulting in competitive edge. One way of doing this is to strive for radical change by becoming more innovative. Today however, there's a lack of modern methods guiding companies to be not only innovative and creative in their production development process, but also increasingly more innovative while using it. Hence, the objective of this paper is to present and discuss a preliminary first draft of a Kaikaku realization method, primarily based upon Concept Modelling and research within the domains of Operations Management and Strategy, Innovation theory and Change theory. The result is a sequential work process that provides guidance from an initial “current state” of production to a more desirable “future state” based upon an aggressive target that is set in line with the production strategy. Finally, future research is discussed, implying that more research should be subjected to the actual work process as well as the main support provided in the process - aggressive target setting and facilitation of innovative thinking.

    Using concept modelling enables improvement system development2013In: Proceedings of the International Conference on Advanced Manufacturing Engineering and Technologies: Vol. 2 / [ed] Dr. Andreas Archenti & Dr. Antonio Maffei, 2013, p. 329-338Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Many enterprises adapt new approaches, methods and tools in their improvement

    and development processes in their improvement system as a response to the

    increasing global competition. A problem is that terms and concepts mean different

    things to different people and in different contexts. Concept models could here serve

    as shared mental models and facilitates understanding, development and later

    implementation of a new present state of an improvement system. The objective has

    been to explore the concept modelling method in an operations management context.

    This paper presents two different cases on how to use concept models in research

    and development activities for improvement method and improvement system

    development. It is concluded that concept modelling seems to be a fruitful method of

    support in an improvement system development context.
