Development of production flow efficiency : A case study (English)
Abstract [sv]

Fallstudiens syfte är att skapa förståelse över hur ett internt produktionsflöde på ett tillverkande företag kan uppnå en hög produktionflödeseffektivitet. Målsättningen är att skapa en kartläggning av ett nuvarande flödestillstånd på fallföretaget. Utifrån detta ska empirin och den noggrant utvalda teorin generera i en analys som ska sammanställa de faktorer som är väsentliga att studera för att förbättra flödet i dagsläget. Med hjälp av TPS-huset och faktorer som grund ska det klargöras om företaget gynnas av att tillverka internt eller överlåta delar av sin produktion externt. 

Abstract [en]

The globalization that exists in the contemporary society means that manufacturing companies in Sweden are forced to look over their production. This to reach a higher competitive advantage and retain jobs nationally. The case study is based on the social problem of an rising unemployment while outsourcing is becoming increasingly popular for manufacturing companies in Sweden. The case company is a medical technology company that manufactures supplies articles to disinfection equipment.

The case study brings up opinions about what is essential to study in a manufacturing company when a long-term decision on flow efficiency is to be taken. The study aims to create an understanding of how an internal production flow in a manufacturing company can achieve high efficiency. Estimation is to be created on how the actual internal production flow is different in relation to the flow that occurs when processes are transferred externally. The determining between producing internally or removing parts of production must include an review of the factors that affect the company's profitability. Initially it is essential for manufacturing companies to evaluate their current situation carefully to develop in the right direction in the future.

A disposition model is presented after the theory chapter to structure the work and give the reader a clear view of the coming parts in the case study. At first the current situation of the case company is studied. After that the empirical data linked with the relevant theory becomes an analysis of the current state. The analysis is then discussed by a comparison of the two different flows using the TPS-house to include the relevant factors of lean production. Finally the comparison is evaluated and the factors that have the greatest impact on the company's decision making are clarified. The result that the case study has generated is that the essential factors affect each other and that a business should focus on reviewing the factors together, to achieve a desired production flow efficiency. The reviewing of factors generates a support if outsourcing should be applied in a future corporate development. It also shows how the employees of the company are affected by this choice.
