My name is Görgen Karlsson and I have worked within the automotive industry for more than 30 years. During that time I have worked in many projects and alternated project work with testing. Most of the work has been related to testing of vehicles, systems and components in a lab environment.
How come you are so interested in your specific field of work?
Cars have always been very interesting to me. Working with testing also gives you the practical experience and the tasks vary with time.
Which is the best project you’ve worked on?
One of the best was when I, as a consultant, began working on a new assignment at a new place with new people and with a new type of parts. I managed to solve a large, very challenging and time critical test task that enabled the part to go into serial production on time.
What motivates you in your work?
Working with testing gives variety to your work and the tasks vary from one week to another. Sometimes you get results and see effects that were not expected, some of these results can be important to avoid future problems and other results can be used for further product improvements.
