Abstract [en]

In a world of increasing globalization, companies are exposed to increasing competition. This means that companies face increased importance on its efficiency and productivity in order to create and maintain their competitiveness. To preserve this, maintenance is required to support the processes that will meet the customer needs. Furthermore, this creates a need of spare provisioning, which need to be efficient to avoid loss of production.This study was conducted at Boliden Mineral AB in Kristineberg, whose spare provisioning process was not comprehended as optimal. Consequently, this study were intended to study the current spare provisioning process and improve its streamlining and to study the challenges that may arise from a change, but also how these challenges should be managed for an effective change management. After 20 weeks of study of the spare provisioning process it appears that this subject is relatively unexplored, despite its considered importance. It is reasonable to consider that this process consists of decisions that arise from individual considerations and are based upon ad hoc. This forces the process to detours and, subsequently, waste occurs. In addition, the spare provisioning process only contains 36.8 percent of value adding activities. To avoid this waste, suggestions are to work more standardized and to integrate all activities with each other.Although, to achieve a more streamlined spare provisioning process, a change is required. This change will not proceed without challenges, whereas the results indicate that 33 different challenges may arise. To deal with these challenges 67 mitigations have also been presented, in order to increase the possibilities for the establishment of a more efficient spare provisioning process.
