SFI NORMAN will perform research in three overlapping domains and the work will be organized in multidisciplinary work packages (WP).
The research will be conducted in three main research areas:
- Advanced Manufacturing Technology
- Operations Management in Norwegian Manufacturing
- Product and process Development
The number of work packages within each research area will vary according to resources allocated to the research area (see budget and part 2 of plan). The topic of the research area continues throughout the period of NORMAN and work packages are dynamically initiated, performed and terminated based on achieved results ideas and proposal from industry and research groups.
