Titel: Brister och åtgärder i produktionsprocessen i en distributionscentral - En fallstudie på Staples AB i Växjö

Författare: Melita Gredelj & Emine Sadikaj

Handledare: Hana Hulthén

Examinator: Peter Berling

Bakgrund: Den mest tids- och arbetskraftintensiva processen i lagret är plockprocessen, vilket omfattar hämtning av objekt från lagerplatser för att uppfylla kundorder. Plockprocessen står även för en stor del av lagrets kostnader och det är därför viktig att undersöka den för att öka effektiviteten i organisationen. En stor del av den kostnaden går till arbetskraften som arbetar med detta manuellt. Det finns idag idag stor potential för att göra denna process mer automatiserad.

 

Syfte: Studiens syfte är att visa vilka åtgärder det finns till brister inom manuella samt automatiserade plockprocesser inom företag som levererar kontorsmaterial.

 

Genomförande: Den genomförande studien är en fallstudie på Staples. Data har samlats in genom semistrukturerade intervjuer på Staples men även genom enkäter som besvarats av Atea och Office Depot. Målet med studien har varit att ta reda på vilka brister som finns i en plockprocess och hur dessa kan åtgärdas.

 

Slutsats: Ett företag som levererar kontorsmaterial kan effektivisera sin plockprocess och åtgärda sina felplock genom att använda sig av automatiserade lösningar, så som WMS. Detta hjälper dessa företag att integrera sina system vilket kommer att stödja det dagliga lagerarbetet genom att exempelvis visa information i realtid av vad som finns i lagret och vart det är placerat. Genom att ha detta system behöver inte lagerarbetare plocka efter minne eller erfarenheter utan de kan hela tiden förlita sig till systemet. Genom att implementera detta kan kostnaderna minska kraftigt.

Title: Shortcomings and measures in the production process in a distribution center - A case study at Staples AB in Växjö

Authors: Melita Gredelj & Emine Sadikaj

Background: The most time- and labor-intensive process in the warehouse is the picking process, which includes retrieving objects from storage locations to fulfill customer orders. The picking process also accounts for a large part of the warehouse's costs and it is therefore important to examine it to increase the efficiency of the organization. Much of that cost goes to the workforce who works with this manually. Today, there is great potential for making this process more automated.

 

Purpose: The aim of the study is to show what measures are available for deficiencies in manual and automated picking processes within companies that supply office supplies.

 

Method: The implemented study is a case study at Staples. Data has been collected through semi-structured interviews at Staples but also through questionnaires that were answered by Atea and Office Depot. The aim of the study has been to find out which shortcomings exist in a picking process and how these can be fixed.

 

Conclusions: A company that supplies office supplies can streamline its picking process and fix its picking error by using automated solutions, such as WMS. This helps these companies integrate their systems, which will support the daily inventory work by, for example, displaying real-time information of what is in the warehouse and where it is located. By having this system, warehouse workers do not need to pick by memory or experience, and they can always rely on the system. By implementing it, costs can decrease sharply.
