Abstract [en]

Scania CV AB’s vision is to produce 120 000 trucks by the year 2020. To achieve this goal, the Fit for use (FFU) departments in Södertälje play an important role. Today the FFU-departments have a productivity of 60%, which ought to be increased for the company to be able to reach its vision. The aim with this master thesis is to produce a proposal of improvements within the FFU-departments that increases the productivity and is able to meet the deadlines from the planning system. The objective is to create and implement one general proposal, consisting of both methodology and work approaches that contributes to an increase in productivity across the departments.PDCA has been used as a general methodology during the thesis work and the development phase has been cyclical, using the eight steps in ”Projektcirkeln”. To create an understanding of the work and the results, a theoretical framework was created containing processes and their development, productivity, efficiency, waste, Scania production system, 5S, working conditions and teamwork. Identification and analysis of the current state have been performed using observations, interviews and productivity calculations. Different methods such as brainstorming and focus groups have been used and several tests have been conducted, to create multiple proposals on an iterative basis. These proposals have been tested and implemented on both FFU-departments.A critical review of productivity of the FFU-departments showed that the departments have a productivity of 46%, calculated using the departments’ methodology. However, if the calculations were based on the theoretical framework the productivity would only be 21%. The reason for the low productivity in the departments is the high degree of non-value adding work such as unnecessary motion, waiting and overprocessing.The final proposal consists of boards for daily management, a template for a list of tools to the work instruction and that all the necessary materials will be delivered in a kit to the work station. In one of the departments the area for tools and equipment has been rationalized. The result from testing the proposals shows an increase in productivity by 25%. The FFU-departments in Södertälje can therefore extract 26.5 extra FFU-hours daily. Calculated on 226 workdays per year this would result in a profit increase by 750 000 SEK.The recommendation for the FFU-organisation is to continue to use the implemented proposal. To further increase the productivity the organisation is recommended to look into what impact the time setting of the work has on the results of the FFU-departments.KEYWORDS: Productivity, Scania CV AB, non-value adding work, waste, observation
