Thesis project at Scania is an excellent way of making contacts for your future working life. Many of our current employees started their career with a thesis project.Background:
The NCSX Group at the Scania Technical Center is responsible for developing and implementing parts of the software for our Engine Management Systems (EMS). We are also responsible for the delivery of the completed EMS software.
Our areas of responsibility for the EMS include:
- System ownership
- Calibration (a.k.a. engine “tuning”) coordination
- System architecture
- Configuration Management (CM)
A calibration coordinator's main responsibility is to keep on time and keep together the various projects' calibration work. This is achieved by mediating schedules and initiating various calibration activities in accordance with guidelines specified within our organization. However, the calibration coordinator interacts with other organizations within R&D, production and service organization that provide SW development for the complete EMS SW. These other organizations have other internal process that differ from our own organization. The objective is to develop a lean cross-functional calibration process for all the parties involved.Target:
To develop an improved lean process of the calibration for all the EMS Software available for Scania Buses, Trucks and Scania Engines. Including current development and maintenance projects.Assignment:
Develop Visual stream mapping of the current calibration process for all cross-functional teams.
Identify improvement areas within these processes.
Utilize recent scientific industrial management tools and techniques to optimize lead times of the calibration process while ensuring quality of complete EMS SW calibration release.
Implement new strategies for an improved lean process of the calibration for all the EMS SW.
