Optimizing the layout in the production hall at ETP Transmission AB : Layout optimization (English)
Abstract [en]

This bachelor thesis is made on behalf of ETP Transmission AB during spring2019 to develop and produce layouts that are optimized for future demands. The proposals of the layouts should consider aspects such as ergonomics, economics and efficiency.

ETP:s products include casings and chucks. The production is located in Linköping, Sweden. In 2017 the company had 52 employees and the turnover was 110 million SEK. ETP:s vision for the production is to make it more efficient to be able to produce more. Therefore, they have decided to invest in the production hall by adding a lathe and three paternoster lifts. They also want to make space for two sanding machines. Because of the changes in the production hall, ETP needs a new layout to fulfill their new demands.

The method “Systematic Layout Planning” has been used to develop different proposals of layouts. Together with theory from different types of productions has three different layout concepts created. These concepts have been analysed through an extensive SWOT analysis process. Based on ETP:s suggestion, only two concepts were focused on. The result includes two layouts, both of them are fulfilling ETP:s demands.

The report describes the ideology “Lean”, with focus on the 5S tool. 5S is a tool that helps keep the workplace organized and maximize efficiency and effectiveness. The ideology Lean was used in the development of the concepts.
