Abstract [en]

The Swedish hardwood sawmill industry is today in a situation where the sawn hardwood exhibit a wide variation in quality characteristics, while the customers places strict demands. To create a profitable return for all their products the hardwood sawmill industry therefore must find new markets where other quality characteristics are valuable.

In this study the requirements regarding logistic service and product quality characteristics for secondary wood products used as for instance indoor panelling and mouldings are identified and described. The industrial setting for the study is the Swedish retail and house building industry. The purpose of the study was to study the possibilities to increase the use of hardwoods in these products.

The study follows a case study methodology. The studied companies consisted of in total nine companies in the southern part of Sweden. Six house-building companies were studied and three retail companies.

A total of 15 different requirements regarding logistic service and product quality characteristics were identified. The product quality characteristics were related mainly to the aesthetic appearance of the products and to the stability of the product in service. The important logistical service requirements were related to the location and time of delivery and customer-specified orders.

The results show that adjustment to customer requirements means that a supplier of hardwood products must adjust its organization towards a stronger customer focus. In order to do this a fundamental problem for Swedish hardwood sawmills is the current lack of an accepted quality sorting system for hardwood. It is also important for sawmills to control and adjust their production processes in order to gain increased flexibility and delivery precision.

With the results from this study a test collection of mouldings and indoor panelling has been developed by a Swedish hardwood sawmill and is now tested by one of the retail companies within the study.
