Abstract [sv]

Examensarbetet är utfört vid Volkswagen Parts Logistics i Nykvarn. Företaget är ett reservdelslager för Volkswagen Groups bilmärken på de svenska, finska, baltiska och norska marknaderna.

Examensarbetets syfte är att ge förslag som förbättrar produktiviteten och förbättra arbetsförhållandena, med bibehållen eller ökad kvalitet på två avdelningar i lagret: Parts Logistics Pallgods och Parts Logistics Avgåendegods. Förändringsförslagen är, eftersom lagret är nybyggt (2006), fokuserade på hur processerna i sig kan förbättras utan ombyggnationer och investeringar.

Examensarbetet är utfört genom att aktivt arbeta i processerna på de två avdelningarna för att sedan analysera dessa med hjälp av en litteraturstudie och diskussioner med de anställda. Dessutom har två studiebesök gjorts för att få inspiration till olika arbetssätt: Clas Ohlsons centrallager i Insjön och Møller Logistikk, som motsvarar Volkswagen Parts Logistics på den norska marknaden.

Inom de tre olika områden där förbättringsmöjligheter identifierades har jag presenterat följande förslag och potentiella effekter.

Abstract [en]

The thesis is done at Volkswagen Parts Logistics in Nykvarn. The company is a warehouse of spare parts for Volkswagen Group Brands in the Swedish, Finnish, Baltic and Norwegian markets.

The thesis aims to improve productivity and improve the working conditions while maintaining the quality. The two departments of the warehouse in the thesis is: Parts Logistics Pallet articles (PLP)and Parts Logistics Outgoing goods(PLA). Improvement suggestions are because of the reason that the warehouse is newly built (2006), focused on the processes. The suggestions made are those which not require redevelopment or investments.

The thesis is done by working in the processes of the two departments and then analyzing the founding’s with support from the literature review and discussions with the employees. In addition, two visits were made to find inspiration for various approaches. The two visits were made at Clas Ohlson’s central warehouse in Insjön and Møller Logistikk which is the equivalent of Volkswagen Parts Logistics for the Norwegian market.

Within the three different areas where improvement opportunities were indentified is presented in the following compilation. The proposal is followed by the potential impacts of the improvement.
