Titel: Effektivisering av lager för produkter i arbete

Bakgrund: Ett tillverkningsföretag har ofta flera varianter av lager som till exempel färdigvarulager, säkerhetslager och produkter i arbete-lager. Produkter i arbete brukar benämnas som PIA. PIA-lagrets utformning är en viktig del för hur flödet i en verksamhet ser ut och fungerar.

Syfte: Syftet är att föreslå en förbättrad hantering av PIA-lager för att bidra till ökad effektivisering av internt materialflöde.

Metodval: Studien utgår ifrån en kvalitativ fallstudie. Studien utgår ifrån observationer på fallföretaget samt semistrukturerade intervjuer.

Slutsatser: Vi kan efter genomförd studie påvisa att det finns skillnader mellan vad som beskrivs i teorin och hur PIA-lagret på Proton Lighting faktiskt ser ut. Det som har påvisats i jämförelsen mellan dessa är att MTO-artikeln är den som prioriteras före MTS-artikeln. Det innebär att lagringskostnaderna för MTS-artiklar automatiskt blir högre då MTO-artiklarna alltid har företräde i produktionen. Det finns inte heller någon fast artikelplacering i PIA-lagren vilket gör att artikelkomponenterna kan placeras var som helst i PIA-lagren, vilket leder till en ökning av de interna transporterna.

Nyckelord: Produkter i arbete, lager, lagerlayout, make-to-order, make-to-stock, artikelplacering

Title: Improving the efficiency of work in process inventory

Background: A manufacturing company often has varieties of inventories, for example inventory of finished products, safety stocks and work in process inventory. The shaping of the WIP inventory is very important for a business since the other activities linked to the WIP inventory are effected of the shaping of the WIP inventory.

Purpose: The purpose is to suggest an improved utilization process of WIP inventory in order to support an efficiency of internal flow of materials.

Methodology: The study applies a qualitative case study. The study is based on observations at the case company together with semi-structured interviews.

Conclusions: After concluded study we can show that there are differences between what is described in the theory and how the actual WIP inventory is constructed at Proton Lighting. What has been shown in the comparison between the theory and the collected data is that the MTO-flow precede the MTS-flow. Automatically the MTS-article gets a higher inventory cost because of the preceding of the MTO-article. There is not a fixed placement for the articles in the WIP inventories which can result in that the articles are placed anywhere in the factories WIP inventories, which leads to an increase of the internal transports.
