Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis was to review and investigate processes by analyzing what impact logistics and handling had on the transportation units, with the goal of proposing a solution strategy for how to prevent and reduce the breakage of these units. By creating and applying standards and guidelines, specified in this thesis there is the opportunity to greatly reduce: cost of costumer claims, ecological impact and risk of injuries. To achieve this: mapping of the processes and locating risk factors, archival studies, literature, Ishikawa mapping, a case study and interviews were performed. With the methods used, two main problem areas were found and investigated. Analyzing these two problem areas lead to the recommendations of standards and application of Standardized work.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med det genomförda examensarbetet var att undersöka och analysera vilka effekter logistik och hantering haft på hållfastheten av lastningsbärare för att ta fram ett lösningsförslag på hur brott kan förebyggas. Från införda standarder och riktlinjer, presenterade i det här examensarbetet kan reklamationskostnader, ekologiska kostnader och skaderisker kraftigt minimeras. Processkartläggning och risk sökning, Arkiv- och litteraturstudier, Ishikawa- kartläggning, fallstudie och intervjuer genomfördes och användes för att få fram resultatet. Med de använda metoderna kunde två problemområden hittas och undersökas. Analysering av dessa problemområden ledde till en rekommendation om applicering av standardiserat arbete.
