Abstract [en]

As a company it is required to work with strategies to minimize costs such as packaging and logistic costs. The increased market of industrial produced wooden buildings results that the time and the cost which the packaging of prefabricated building elements consume, is experienced to be in greater need of development than before and demands a better solution. The aim with this dissertation was to discover how the development of the handling of the packaging can improve the packaging process. The goal was to present improvement proposals for a simplified and thereby a more efficient production in time and cost perspective.

The packaging process which includes packaging, handling, storage and transport were studied. Interviews were made with participants from the market for manufacturers of wooden houses and a case study was made at the company A-hus. The production management at A-hus considered that the packaging process needed to be developed and the study investigates where in the supply chain the problems are. In the case study people were interviewed about the company’s packaging process. Observations were made to discover problems that did not emerge by the interviews, but also to confirm the problems which were expressed by the respondents.

Several conclusions of improvement proposals for the packaging process could be drawn from the results:

  • The documentation of damages needs to be developed to fulfill its function.
  • The handling stage is where most damage occurs and therefore the equipment for handling is in need of development.
  • The communication is in need of improvement to increase the knowledge management within the factory and between the factory and the building site.
  • A specific improvement proposal for A-hus is to remove the plastic packaging and to implement an indoor storage.
