Master Thesis 30HP - Analysis of product development within Engineering-To-Order

Järfälla, Sweden
Closing date: 15 December 2022


Product development within the aerospace and defence industry is pushing the boundaries of new technology, forcing companies to adapt quickly or risk becoming outcompeted. Time to market is of strategic interest and combined with state of the art engineering tools our current ways of working have to be challenged.

Most of Saab’s business can be said to revolve around Engineering-To-Order (ETO), where innovation and complex technical components are tailored to highly specialized customer needs. Analyzing how other parts of Saab and how other companies approach an ETO way of working, identifying potential challenges and opportunities, serve as valuable input for the ongoing process development initiatives at Saab Surveillance in Järfälla. The master’s thesis would focus from the point of view of a business unit within Saab.

You will conduct the thesis at the department Future Technology, which is a very competent and cross-functional engineering team. We work with additive manufacturing (AM), machine learning (AI /ML), Business Intelligence (BI) etc. which creates a very innovative work environment.
