Abstract [en]

This thesis is a feasibility study into how Fresenius Kabi may rationalize their destruction process in regards to cost, recycling, and work environment. The two main objectives are to identify scrap flows and the possibility to improve or replace the equipment that is now carrying out the physical scrapping. The flow has been visualized by a flow chart of the material and communication. A chart of the problem established to visualize where improvements are necessary. Based on the problems proposals are presented on how to improve the flow thru the plant.

During analyze of the physical scrapping equipment it was also necessary to take a deeper look at how they are carrying out there work today, how does the procedure look like, working environment and where are the weaknesses. On this basis, the problem where analyzed and suggestions for improvement were created.  As today`s equipment is not effective enough a simplified specification established in order to more easily be able to design new equipment. A number of different solutions have been developed and eventually the two best was compared to visualize who fits best.

Fresenius Kabi strives to achieve a high environmental awareness therefore this report also looks in to how they handle their waste today and if this is possible to improve it, especially with regards to the possibility to recycling the waste in the best way. Lean and Supply chain management has been used as a theoretical foundation for this report. This report resulted in proposals of how to change scrapping equipments, working environment and the flow of communication to achieve a more efficiency flow of material trough the plant.
