Abstract [en]

Title: Control over and inspections of the incoming flow of deliveries

Background: Staples experiences difficulties to get their incoming flow of deliveries to deliver on time. This is because Staples has a poor control of its suppliers in the current situation. Another problem that Staples experience is that their inspection of the incoming flow is taking too long time. These problems can lead to unnecessary tied up capital, backlogs and rest orders. Staples would like to explore the possibility of improving the control and inspection of the incoming flow.

Purpose: To identify the amount of late and early incoming flow of deliveries and describe how Staples could control them in order to receive more on-time deliveries. Moreover to describe how Staples could improve the inspection process in order to make the incoming flow of deliveries flow faster into storage.

Methodology: The study is a case study in Staples central warehouse in Växjö, Sweden.

Results: Suggestion has been made for how Staples could improve the control over the incoming flow of deliveries, and the inspections of the incoming flow of deliveries. The suggestions made are based on how Staples could control deliveries in advance in order to receive more on-time deliveries. Moreover specific requirements could be made towards the suppliers to improve the inspections in order to reduce the flow time into storage.
