Who we are

PADOK is the Swedish network for PhD students in production-related research fields. With the increased interest for production research in Sweden (as can be seen in for example the initiative Produktion 2030, set up between the Swedish technology companies and academia), PADOK also intensify their efforts for the PhD students. Production research does range from automation, production economics, and process and production technologies to human-machine collaboration and product development for efficient manufacturing.

The PADOK-network works to develop the PhD student situation by creating a network for the PhD students as well as establishing connections between manufacturing companies and those who do research related to production. Representatives from PADOK are included in the Swedish Production Academy, giving PhD students a chance to affect graduate courses both by suggesting ideas for courses and evaluating existing courses. As an example of this, the PADOK network members have been deeply involved in the design and arrangement of the course “International Production”, where participants have been visiting manufacturing companies in Sweden and internationally to pinpoint similarities and differences in production all over the world. The international production course has so far benchmarked manufacturing in China, Brazil, India and Eastern Europe and compared it to Swedish manufacturing.
