En modell för förbättringar av materialhantering genom användandet av automatiserade lagersystem: En fallstudie (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to create a model of how to organize the placements of articles in an automated storage system in order to reduce time and cost related to the extractions. The model was developed during an investigation at a case company, and a comprehensive study of the material handling identified bottlenecks, whereof one was chosen to be further investigated: the automated storage system. The automated storage system is newly installed equipment, which required new working methods to be incorporated to the already existing working environment. The ABC-analysis was used in order to motivate how the articles should be placed in the automated storage. The goal for the new way of handling material was to put as little effort as possible on time related to the extraction of material. This due to the realization of material handling processes being a huge contributor to waste activities. This resulted in the development of the model and the suggestion that is given to the case company is to place the most frequent extracted articles close to the users. However, advantages must be held against disadvantages of rearrangements since the material handling will not be eliminated totally due to smaller improvements.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna uppsats är att skapa en modell för hur man ska organisera artikelplaceringar i ett automatiserat lagersystem för att reducera tid och kostnad relaterat till uttag av material. Modellen skapades genom en undersökning på ett fallföretag, en omfattande studie av materialhanteringen identifierade flaskhalsar, varav en valdes för fortsatt undersökning: det automatiserade lagersystemet. Det automatiserade lagersystemet är en nyinstallerad utrustning, som kräver att nya arbetsmetoder ska inkorporeras till den redan existerande arbetsmiljön. ABC-analysen användes för att motivera hur artiklarna ska placeras i det automatiserade lagret. Målet för det nya sättet att hantera material på var att så få insatser som möjligt skulle användas för uttag av material. Detta pågrund av insikten utav att materialhanteringsprocesser är en stor bidragande slöserifaktor. Detta resulterade i modellen och förslagen som ges till fallföretaget är att placera de mest frekvent använda artiklarna nära användaren. Emellertid så måste man väga fördelar mot nackdelar av en förändring eftersom materialhanteringen inte kommer att elimineras helt pågrund av mindre förbättringar.
