Råvaruinflöde inom träindustrin: En fallstudie på ett norrländskt pappersbruk
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Today's global market means that raw materials are sought and bought from all over the world. This creates an higher demand for a well-functioning supply chain. In our thesis we have studied a large paper mill in northen Sweden which experiences issues with flow of raw material. Our aim has hence been to examine which aspects affect the flow of raw materials to the mill, and how these can be adressed using an IT-system. The question we sought to answer was; What factors are important to consider and how do these affect the ability of an IT-system which will support the flow of raw material at the paper mill? We have found that the problems are strongly connected to the low amount of information sharing between the mill and the suppliers. We have come to the conclusion that the paper mill and the suppliers could benefit from boundary-spanning, and that a so-called awareness display which indicates current capacity would support that.
