Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis has been to identify and analyze waste and ergonomic risk factors in a manual order picking and packing line and subsequently present measures to eliminate waste and ergonomic risk factors. The presented measures aim to reduce waste and ergonomic risk factors in the order picking and packing line whilst at the same time contribute to better working conditions. This has been done through a case study at Wulff Supplies where data was gathered by studies on site, including interviews and observations. Also, a review of literature and other studies done in the field of order picking and packing process. The effect of the proposed measures has previously been researched in other contexts and has been proven to be effective in reducing waste and ergonomic risk factors. The study aimed to identify waste and ergonomic risk factors in order picking and packing to eliminate these by defining measures and recommending these. Manual order picking and packing can, when implementing the proposed measures aid to eliminate waste and ergonomic risk factors. The thesis highlights how measures interact with one another when implemented in order picking and packing. Furthermore, these measures eliminate both waste and ergonomic risk factors at the same time and therefore, these measures should be prioritized in an implementation. At last the thesis provides insight on how a successful implementation of the proposed measures could be formulated for eliminating both waste and ergonomic risk factors.
