Lead time reduction at ACG Nyström (English)
Abstract [en]

A report has been made at a company in Borås at a company called ACG Nyström. The company is today international and is marketing advanced equipment, systems and further education to the manufacturing industry. A part of ACG Nyström’s production is a machine they call Unimat. ACG Nyström doesn’t just stand for the actual production of the machine, but also for assembling and installation of the machine at the final customer. The company also offers service. The purpose of this task is to create a more flexible production by reducing the lead time of the machine Unimat. This flexible production is not a customer demand, but an easier way for ACG Nyström to adept to customers’ inability to make up their minds. It’s a problem for ACG Nyström when the customer suddenly wants to make some changes in their order in the middle of the creation of a machine. The report is divided into four phases. The first phase contains the purpose of the work and the works delimitation. The next phase contains a literature study which is followed by a study of the situation at the company today, mapping and a company analyze. The last phase contains improvement proposals and conclusions. To achieve the goals with this examination work, a collecting of literature and studying has been made. The literature study is used as background knowledge for the report’s problem description. Discussions about the current situation at the company and improvement proposals are also based on these literature studies. The literature study is general and discusses lead time, steering principals and how a faster flow can be reached. iii The introduction of Lean production would generate many benefits, for example equalizing the flow, for the company. Lean production is a modern logistical concept that many companies and organisation tries to implement and pursue. One of the factors to the long lead time at the company is the complex internal transportations, for example the transport between operations in the company. This is a fact because of the size and weight of the models that have to be transported. Further reasons for the complex internal transportations are that the operation moments have some distance between each other. Not only are the models big and heavy, they also have to be transported far. To develop nearness between the operations, a new layout has been created in the current production area.
