Abstract

Fabless production, meaning manufacturing without owning fabrication facilities, has been suggested as a novelty by the semiconductor industry. However, Ikea, the global furniture company based in Sweden, has successfully been producing their furniture in a fabless fashion since 1955. This paper explores how Ikea manage and control its almost fabless production to reach the company’s targets for sustainable profit, sustainable environment, and sustainable social responsibility.
