Abstract [en]

Materials handling is a term that includes a corporate transport and warehouse processes. Materials handling has impact on the flow of materials and constitute a significant part of costs.The aim of the thesis is to identify internal transport and warehouse management. The study will clarify the extent of collaboration between production and warehouse affect materials handling. The aim is to suggest approaches to streamline material shipments and inventory management system enhancing interaction between warehouse and production.The study was initiated with a comprehensive survey of the internal inventory management process. This was made by observations and interviews with operators. Continued work in the study included detailed mapping of materials transport, which mainly was done through observations and interviews.The survey showed that the inventory management process was inefficient in terms of time and resources. A major part of Lundqvist’s internal transports were shown to constitute searching for materials. This resulted in the production suffering from impaired supply of materials. Inventory management process was showed to be interference sensitive and very critical for the production.The study resulted in an inventory management system and a layout solution. The inventory management system was designed for using stock cards and pick lists. The inventory cards' feature at the warehouse management process means that documentation is done at each entry and removal from storage. This will result in increased interaction for all organisational units and reduced interference problems. Solutions for pick lists are targeted to streamline the supply of materials to production, which provides a planned supply of materials that enable just-in-time use.
