The understanding of OK>1 (English)
Abstract [en]

In 2005, Outokumpu began to implement its system of continuous improvement, OK> 1, at Avesta Jernverk. OK> 1 has not generated sufficient results on plant KPI:s. The purpose of this study is to identify the understanding,  participation and commitment regarding to OK> 1, and to suggest some actions to make OK> 1 more successful with emphasis on these three aspects. The thesis shall also determine whether there are any differences in the attitude towards OK>1 between Blue Collars and White Collars.

The study consisted of a survey, and interviews. The output from these methods were processed and analyzed and finally resulted in a SWOT – analysis and suggested actions for improving the understanding, participation and commitment towards OK>1. The thesis work also covered a literature study concerning Lean Production, to get a deeper understanding of how to implement Lean Production successfully.

The results of the survey pointed out that Blue Collars do not understand OK>1 as well as White Collars, and that they do not participate as actively as White Collars in improvement activities. To improve the results on plant KPI:s the thesis suggests following actions: education, simplification of methods and increased feedback from the management.
