Optimization of pre pack in the supply chain (English)
Abstract [sv]

Allt fler detaljhandelskoncerner möter problem med att optimera fördelning och påfyllning av produkter till butiker. Ledtiderna inom modeindustrin är långa och återförsäljarna måste planera sina inköp flera månader i förväg för de kommande säsongerna. Produkterna paketeras hos tillverkarna innan de skickas vidare till centrallagret. Beslut om packstorlekar tas i samband med inköpsordern. Genom att paketera flera lagerhållningsenheter (SKU) tillsammans ökar effektiviteten och kostnader i leveransflödet reduceras, samtidigt kan felfördelningskostnader uppstå. Detta examensarbete är utfört åt Venue Retail Group som är en ledande aktör i norden inom accessoarer, resetillbehör och skor. Syftet med examensarbetet är att finna de åtgärder inom packutformningen som skulle kunna generera ökad genomförsäljning för Venue Retail Groups egenproduktion av syntetväskor. I examensarbetet formuleras förpackningsproblemet som ett optimeringsproblem. En modell utformas för bestämning av optimal packkonfiguration som tillfredsställer varje butikskategoris prognostiserade efterfrågan med målet att minimera de totala kostnaderna. Genom kartläggning av produkternas varuflöde samt identifiering av kostnader relaterade till packkonfiguration föreslår examensarbetet en ändring av Venue Retail Groups befintliga packstrategi som kan uppnå en bättre genomförsäljning. 

Abstract [en]

An increasing number of retail groups is facing problems with optimizing distribution and replenishment of products to serve stores. Lead times in the fashion industry are long and dealers often have to plan their purchases several months in advance for the coming seasons. The products are packed in production before they are sent to the central warehouse. Decisions about the pack configuration are made in connection with the purchase order. By packaging multiple stock-keeping units (SKUs) together, the efficiency increase and the costs in the supply chain can be reduced, while misallocation costs may arise. The master thesis is performed at the Venue Retail Group, which is a leading group in the Nordic region within the accessories, travel equipment and shoes. The objective of the paper is to identify the optimal pack configuration in order to generate increased turnover sales within the supply chain for own production synthetic bags. In this paper the pack problem is formulated as an optimization problem. A model is designed to determine the optimal packing order quantities that satisfy every store category's forecasted demand with the goal to minimize the total costs. By mapping product flow and identifying costs related to pack configuration the paper suggest a change of Venue Retail Groups existing pack strategy to achieve the objective.
