Scania prides itself as being one of the leading truck manufacturers in the world. We are trying to drive a change into a more environmentally sustainable future and in order to achieve this we need to think about sustainability on both on a large and small scale.

The red arrow organization at Scania was introduced to care for our customers and the aftermarket. NTQ implements changes on existing projects. These changes could be necessary for a multitude of reasons including: quality issues, supplier changers, cost reductions or to a more sustainable option. When we are creating a business case for these changes we consider the quality and cost impact - but we must start considering the environmental impact of every modification.

The aim of this thesis is to develop a computational model that assignment managers within NTQ can use to asses which design option would be the most environmentally sustainable. We have more than 3000 components within Scania transmission, meaning that the model will need to be general but still accurate enough to allow a confident decision.

Step 1: Introduction to the red arrow process within transmission at Scania

Step 2: Detailed literature review into existing models that are currently used to assess a products environmental sustainability

Step 3: Decide on suitable methodology and develop computational model which could be used by NTQ in the A60 stage

Step 4: Implement the model within different projects at NTQ and suggest future improvements

This project would be suited to an Engineering student with specialisation in environmental sustainability.

Start date: Flexible.

Estimated time needed: 20 weeks
