Flödesanalys av plåtsammansättning: Strävan mot Just-In-Time och minskat slöseri
Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The Volvo Trucks plant in Umeå is a highy complex manufacturing facility where the same production line handles a variety of different models. This require flexible and agile processes with high quality standards. This thesis studies the flow of material through a production line and how Volvo can use their existing manufacturing monitoring system to optimize the flow of materials.
The goal with the thesis is to identify eventual problems with the flow of materials and to deliver a few proposals on how the production line can improve its productivity. The theory of LEAN, Just-In-Time and Supply Chain Management serves as the scientific reference to this project. By analyzing the flow of material, performing interviews and observing the processes a few problems are identified. The problems are analyzed and some improvements are proposed along with recommendations for further investigation.
