Studie av interntransporter vid SKF Göteborg
Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
SKF Gothenburg is planning on a restructuring of their production area and sees this as an excellent opportunity to update and make their internal logistics more efficient. This thesis suggests how a more efficient internal logistics can be achieved with higher fill ratios and minimal environmental impact. Also resource savings linked to the internal material handling will be reviewed.
To carry out properly informed and substantial improvements a field study in form of surveys, interviews and forms have been completed. The result is a current status analysis where potential areas of improvement have been clarified. The driving schedules have carefully been reviewed and modifications have been made to meet the demands and requirements set by the company.
The study has resulted in updated driving schedules that take account of the restructured production area whilst meeting the productions daily requirements. A more efficient transport logistics with better use of resources have been achieved through increased fill ratios and reduced truck transportation outside, this with a minimal impact on the environment. The driving schedules, which the project resulted in, have high flexibility. Due to the constant changes that take place in the production area the driving schedules should rather be considered as a basis to further develop, than a finished result.
The low amount of data available at the project's start-up required an own field study that resulted in own primary data. The reliability of the generated data had benefited if more time was available, a larger time frame for data collection had led to a broader and deeper understanding of the internal logistics. Despite the projects short time frame, the result is considered to be reliable.
The conclusion is that with a good knowledge of how a company's internal transport flows look, minor changes can lead to big differences in terms of reduced environmental impact, more efficient internal transports and resource savings.
