  1. 1. Energy Flow Analysis of Muesli Production : To Identify Cleaner Production Measures

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Anuj Dahiya; [2018]
    Keywords : Efficiency; Energy Losses; Improvements; Environmental performance;

    Abstract : Production of muesli is an energy intensive process which consumes enormous amount of energy invarious forms. In this study, energy flow accounting tool has been employed which is a valuable tool for mapping and quantifying the energy flows within a specific system such as a nation, city or factory.

    Abstract : The thesis has been performed in cooperation with a Swedish manufacturing company. The manufacturing site of the company is currently implementing a new machine layout in one of its workshops. The new layout will increase the product flow to another workshop on the site. READ MORE

  3. 3. Improving material flow and production layout using Value Stream Mapping : A case study in a manufacturing company

    University essay from Högskolan i Jönköping/JTH, Industriell organisation och produktion

    Author : Elina Nilsson; [2018]
    Keywords : layout; material flow; material handling; manual material handling; Lean manufacturing; Value stream mapping; VSM; improvement; manufacturing;

    Abstract : The movement and handling of material are necessary activities, however, commonly regarded as waste. Moving and handling material more times and over longer distance than necessary is time consuming, costly and unproductive. Therefore, a suitable material handling (MH) system with appropriate facility layout is advocated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Comparison of turning blades produced by a conventional- and additive manufacturing method

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Rebecca Carlsson; [2018]
    Keywords : Additive manufacturing; turning tools; parting and grooving; Sandvik Coromant;

    Abstract : Additive manufacturing has developed radical through the years. Sandvik has invested in the area by building a center specific for additive manufacturing. Due to problems with the material- and product properties and high production costs no products have been used with additive manufacturing method. READ MORE

  5. 5. Impact of disposable packaging in automotive production

    University essay from Chalmers tekniska högskola/Institutionen för teknikens ekonomi och organisation
