Abstract [en]

This thesis has been made on behalf of Forsmarks Kraftgrupp AB and is the final part of the education of Bachelor of Engineering in – Innovation, production and logistics atMälardalens Högskola.Forsmark nuclear power plant is located in Östhammars municipality at the coast of Uppland. The three nuclear reactors in Forsmark together produces approximately one-sixth of Sweden’s electricity consumption each year.The background of this study is that a large number of requests come to the purchasing department with incomplete information. Usually it is in the description of what is to be acquired as the information is incomplete, but also in knowing when Quality Control-functions (QC) is supposed to be used.The aim of this work is to describe and analyse the material acquisition process. The report describes how the work is done today and where the deficiencies are. The report also contains my recommended actions to improve the efficiency of operational procedures for the material acquisition process.The report contains a theoretical reference part that is part of the knowledge that is the basis of knowledge for this thesis. The methods used are at first an exploratory study to gather information and to understand the process. After the exploratory study the work with inter-views could begin. The aim of the interviews was to find out information from several differ-ent points of views about how the process works, and where improvement opportunities are.The report contains a baseline description describing the organisation, how the work is done today, which departments are involved in the process and what their role is and a flowchart of the process. It also contains information of what requirements the materials at Forsmark’s Kraftgrupp AB have, and how a purchase of these materials is done.The results consists a summary of the most interesting information that emerged from the interviews, the information retrieval and studies of the process. The analysis and conclusions of the results reveals a number of opportunities for improvement.The report concludes with a number of suggestions for improvement of the efficiency of the material acquisition process. The proposed improvements are partly about standardizing the work process and to develop the instructions and job descriptions. Another improvement pro-posed is to improve the skills and knowledge through education by the company. This either by educating all involved individuals, or by training a smaller group of people to create a group of request experts.
