After the presentation, the project group got the chance to visit the production plant in Pune and get a lesson in both how a LEAN production system is implemented in the industry and how a global operation is specialized to fit an emerging market. In the facility in Pune, Sandvik has one of their biggest R&D centres outside of Sweden, fully equipped with SEM microscopes, stress testes, specialized furnaces and computer simulations.
