Analysis of Documentation and Internal Logistics of Finished Products (English)
Abstract [en]

This final year project is performed at a Company that produces products in wood that protects prop-erty from fire, sound and burglary and are being produced for any kind of environment where security is a requirement. Such as housing, hotel, hospital, shopping malls and so on. The Company’s products are sold at markets in Scandinavia and in other countries by partner Companies. The Company has innovative design for their products and the production technology is developed within the Company. The Company works constantly with improvements and more efficient production technology. Due to the vigorous growth that the Company had has the last years, focus has been on adapting production to demand, which has led to that internal logistics is fallen behind. Management is experiencing that handling of material from final assembly to delivery for transport to customer is ineffective and takes a lot of resources in time and movements. They also experience that the manual handling of docu-ments at final assembly is hard to understand and often creates problems, especially when new staff is employed.The purpose of the project is to submit one or more improvement suggestions on how the material handling in the area from final assembly to delivery can be optimized, which also includes manual document handling. The aim of the project is to identify and analyse activities that will form the basis for the improvement of non-value creation activities as well as more optimized material and docu-ment management through theoretical and production methods. When it comes to manual document management, the writers, supported by theory and literature studies, should propose alternative methods of document management.To create a structure and achieve the purpose and target in order to get realizable improvement pro-posals, the tool PDCA has been applied in A3-format. To find relevant methods in collect data to this work, studies in theory and literature where made. In that way the writers of this bachelor thesis got a deeper understanding and ideas about suitable and efficient methods available to collect necessary data.The analysis of current status shows that a major part of the total time in order to put together an order for deliverance where used to localize pallets and execute castling’s to get a pallet that should be delivered to the Customer. About 80% of total time of processing an order was due to this activity. Further an average of 8 lifts where performed to move a pallet to the delivery storage. Rootcase- and risk analysis have been performed which, together with time- and frequency studies, have shown major economic consequencesThe improvement proposals that are generated are designed from the results of the empiric studies with connections to the theoretical framework and studies in literature. Proposals of a conventional pallet rack, releasing of area in storage and usage of readers of barcode are presented with reasoned advantages, where the storage can be more productive, functional and secure to reduce unnecessary searching and castling’s. Furthermore, proposals of digitalized documents are being presented to integrate quality assurance. Waists as movements and overproduction would be eliminated as fewer faults would arise, as for example: sloppy notes in documents and/or lost document that are a couple of today’s issues at the Company.
