Abstract [sv]

Fallstudiens syfte är att öka förståelsen kring lagerhantering och lagerflöde i en återvinningscentral till en utvecklad effektivisering och strukturering av ett lager. Målet med fallstudien är att rekommendationerna ska kunna användas som ett beslutsstöd vid en eventuell lageromstrukturering på fallföretaget. Relevant teori inom logistik och materialhantering jämförs med empiri för vidare analysering som framför bristande faktorer i flödet. Resultatet framför väsentlig information om flödet som grundar till rekommenderade flödesförbättringar. 

Abstract [en]

Sweden's annual recoverable amount of cooling equipment are estimated to 650 000 units, the distribution takes place in certified recycling centers depending on the allowed amount. The modern lifestyle has led to increased recycling which must be addressed through profitable logistics and careful planning. Studies show that due to problems in inventory control is the determination of quantities and delivery points for incoming supplies.

This case study aims to improve the understanding of material handling and warehouse flow in a recycling plant for possibilities of an improved state. In order to achieve the purpose rigorous qualitative observations of the material flow separated from production and sales has been done. To structure the case study an analytical model has been presented, the model increases the reader's understanding of the approach in the study and its contents. After careful analysis of the current state and theoretical relevance the primary cause of the inadequate storage structure and factors that are causing a negative impact on the stock has been determined.

The root cause of the inadequate storage structure is inbound variety of cooling equipment and incoming quantity, this entails a high degree of warehouse filling and low safety.

The variation in the different article classification is huge, cooling equipment differ in size and type. The cooling equipment variance depends mostly on the generalized categorization, for this reason, a new recommended categorization has been established where volume and frequency requirements are taken into account. The new classification creates opportunities for a recommended storage layout. To facilitate the recommendation, we have designed a Kanban board which is reflecting the warehouse space degree of filling together with a stock layout suggestion.
