One possible solution to the challenges of globalization, sustainability and the upcoming megatrends is the Location Independent Manufacturing (LIM) concept. The LIM concept is a new manufacturing philosophy that has gotten the attention of Finnish SMEs. LIM is not only a solution for faster and more sustainable production, but it will also cut down emissions in transportation and provide new markets for SMEs outside of consumption centers. The new operation model is based on open information. With the LIM software developed for the case company, it is possible to compare the operation models on site.
