In Sweden, the process industries employs nearly 600 000 people and it accounts for about 60 percent of the country's net export. In many industries today, there is a growing emphasis on calculations. They are used to manage and control the activities in today’s organizations, one of these industries is the process industry. Both the preliminary calculations in the form of budgets and follow-up calculations have grown in importance. The current situation at Södra Cell Mönsterås is that there are some problems with the collection of the data that is used as the basis for the follow-up calculations.

The purpose of this paper is to describe what the general problems surrounding data capture for calculations and the methods that could improve data collection. The study will then describe the current problems surrounding data collection and information flows at Södra Cell Mönsterås and suggest improvements.

The essay consists of a qualitative case study at Södra Cell Mönsterås and the empirical material consists mainly of semi-structured interviews and observations.
