Titel:                                   Det lutar mot Lean – en jämförelse av arbetet med- och effekterna av Lean Production på ASSA AB med teoretiska kunskaper inom ämnesområdet.

                                           

Problemfrågor:                 Hur har ASSA AB gått tillväga för att införa Lean Production och vilka faktorer har varit avgörande?

Vilka effekter har införandet av Lean Production givit verksamheten?

 

Syfte:                                 Den här studien ämnar undersöka och sedan jämföra arbetet med- och effekterna av Lean Production hos ASSA AB med teoretiska kunskaper inom ämnesområdet.  

 

Metod:                               Metoden är av kvalitativ karaktär och med hjälp av djupare litteraturstudier och en semi-strukturerad intervju ska studiens syfte uppfyllas.

 

Slutsatser:    Resultatet av den här studien kan sammanfattas med att det som framkommit i den empiriska undersökningen mycket väl överrensstämmer med det som sägs i den teoretiska referensramen. ASSA AB har först infört verktygen 5S och standardiserat arbetssätt, vilket möjliggjort införandet av andra verktyg såsom kanban. Inget av detta hade dock varit möjligt med ett lyckat resultat om inte personalen först blivit utbildade och en leankultur skapats. De effekter som införandet frambringat är bland annat mindre lager, kortare ledtider, högre produktivitet och flexiblare tillverkningsprocess.

Title:                                   It is leaning towards Lean – a comparison of the work with and the effects of Lean Production at ASSA AB with theoretical knowledge within the area.

 

Problems:                          How has ASSA AB approached implementing Lean Production and what factors have been decisive?

What effects have implementing Lean Production had on the operation?

 

Purpose:                            The aim of this study is to, with theoretical knowledge within the area, investigate and then compare the work with and the effects of Lean Production at ASSA AB.

 

Method:                             The method is of a qualitative nature. The purpose of this study will be achieved with the help of deep literature studies and a semi-structured interview.

 

Conclusions:                      The result of this study can, in conclusion, be said to be that what was observed at ASSA AB is very much in agreement with what was observed in the literature study. The company has first introduced the tools 5S and standardized work, something which enabled the introduction of other tools such as kanban. Nothing of this would have been possible with a successful result, however, if the staff had not been educated and a lean culture created. The implementation has generated effects such as smaller stock, shorter lead times, higher productivity and a more flexible production process.
