Abstract [en]

Measurability in production is a cornerstone in all production, but to determine if chosen key performance indicators (KPI’s) are right and in the right amount, to be of help in the daily work, is a challenge. In materials supply processes, there are in some companies not easy to manage KPI’s, resulting in the end in overcapacity in different areas. The question is whether this is acceptable, or if it is a source of cost that has significant improvement potential? In many companies, you do not really know, since there is a lack of facts to draw conclusions from.

Today materials supply is becoming more and more in focus within production development with many theses and ongoing research and development projects. In global companies, management has recognized the importance of the development of this area with new methods and routines for production improvements in the materials supply area.

In this thesis, the author will try to deal with these challenges and give the reader some proposals and solutions. The first area is KPI’s and the author proposes some measurements to be used in the daily work within materials supply. The second area in the thesis is to develop guidelines for materials supply concepts to be used in different types of production set-ups.

The author has made several case studies, in one case company as well as in three reference companies, as well as literature and document studies.
