SINTEF Manufacturing Production Technology
Sustainable development with economic growth is not possible in Norway without a strong manufacturing industry. The main challenge will be the maintenance of organisations when serial sizes are reducing and product variations are growing. It is this which is the focus of production-oriented research at the Department of Production Technology. Our goal is to safeguard the expectations of the Norwegian manufacturing industry and to conduct internationally recognized research in the field of manufacturing.
