Abstract [en]

This thesis is the basis for a study on flow efficiency at production line 1 at the company Galderma in Uppsala in spring 2018. The company is in great need of streamlining its production to satisfy the demand on the market. This makes Galderma need to map its production to find areas where time gains can be made, as well as improvement proposals that can increase the workforce's work situation with regard to ergonomics.

 The investigation began with a survey of the process on the production line. This was done together with active staff. Of the identified improvements and improvement proposals that were then evaluated, some of them were considered more relevant to further develop. Two new improved parts were manufactured in the workshop to facilitate the handling of the lid and the settlement. These parts were one to the cover of the lid to make it possible to look through and keep track of the magazine's level. The second part of the settlement was also made in a much easier material for easier handling and to remove the torque when the templates were needed to be removed to see if the associated box was empty.

 The proposed enhancement proposal would increase the current bottleneck's capacity by over 100%, from 12 units / min to 27 units / min per sealing machine. The efficiency that was done on the bottleneck was to propose a new change to the workflow around the machine to reach the machine's operating speed. Unnecessary moments were moved to later parts of the process, and the material is then prepared outside of the operating hours. This becomes possible when two extra operators are added to the bottleneck.

 Thanks to the capacity increase of the bottleneck, there is no intermediate storage after settlement, which means that a batch termination / boot up does not need to be done, this result in the ability to run a batch over the entire flow. There will be a 30-minute time saving per batch, and at least one operator will be released from the settlement that can be moved to the required parts of the flow.

Abstract [sv]

Det här examensarbetet ligger till grund för en utredning gällande flödeseffektivisering på produktionslina 1 hos företaget Galderma i Uppsala under våren 2018. Företaget är i stort behov av att effektivisera sin produktion för att möta den ökade efterfrågan som finns på marknaden. Det gör att Galderma behöver kartlägga delar av sin produktion för att hitta områden där tidsvinster kan göras, samt identifiera förbättringsförslag som kan höja personalens arbetssituation med avseende på ergonomi.Utredningen började med en kartläggning av processen ute på produktionslinan. Detta utfördes tillsammans med verksam personal. Av de identifierade förbättringarna och förbättringsförslagen som sedan utvärderades ansågs vissa av dem mer relevanta att utveckla vidare. Två nya förbättrade delar tillverkades i verkstan för att underlätta handhavandet av lockmärkaren samt vid avräkningen. Den första delen var till magasinet på lockmärkaren, för att göra det möjligt att se igenom och hålla koll på magasinets nivå. Den andra delen till avräkningen gjordes även i ett mycket lättare material för enklare hantering samt för att få bort momentet när mallarna behövdes tas bort för att se om den tillhörande lådan var tom.Det effektiviseringsförslag som föreslogs skulle öka den nuvarande flaskhalsens kapacitet med över 100 %, från 12 enheter/min till 27 enheter/min per förslutningsmaskin. Effektiviseringen gick ut på att föreslå ett ändrat arbetssätt kring maskinen för att nå ner till maskinens drifthastighet. Onödiga moment flyttades till senare delar i processen samt så ska material förberedas utanför drifttiden. Detta blir möjligt när man tillför två extra operatörer vid flaskhalsen.
