Challenges and success factors in creating radical manufacturing technology innovations

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientific


    Radical Manufacturing Technology Innovations (RMTI) renew the technology equipment that a manufacturing firm uses in its core production process and transform the process in a significant way. Previous research does not cover the manufacturing firms’ perspective to succeeding in the creation of RMTI. The goal of this study is to identify key challenges and success factors in RMTI creation. A qualitative study was conducted with manufacturing firms located in Finland, whereby 23 different exemplary cases of RMTI were explored. Success factors are revealed in supplier firm competence, expert resourcing, good pre-planning and early feedback, and coordination.
