Authors: Mikael Karlsson and Johannes Mueller
Examiner: Helena Forslund
Key words: Bottleneck management, material management, process description, timber, procedures
Purpose: The objective of this study is divided into three parts, all three parts of the purpose aim for the same goal. Namely, to improve the material management so that this enables the bottleneck in the planing mill to keep a continuous flow, and thereby minimizing the risk for production stops at LB-Hus.
Part. 1: Identify and analyze the material management connected to the planing mill in order to identify problem areas.
Part.2: Identify improvement potential in the material management connected to the planing mill.
Part.3: Suggest improvements in the material management connected to the planing mill.
Theoretical framework: Process mapping, inventory accounting, balance safety, inventory availability / service levels, safety stock and reorder point, forecasting and routine descriptions.
Empirical foundation: Interviews carried out at LB-House, illustrated with the help of process maps and a description of each process.
Conclusions: To work with the suggestions given and to follow clear procedures in all processes would result in a more efficient inventory management, it would also present a solution to the problem regarding the planing mill being a bottle neck.
Suggestions for further research: Review and map the information flow from demand to production start. Determine what is needed for production planning to be carried out. Review the possibility of introducing bar codes and a new and more sophisticated business software.
