    Abstract : The forest industry is one of the most important businesses in Sweden, accounting for 9-12 percent of the Swedish industry's total occupation, export, turnover, and added value. Although the investments made by the Swedish forest sector reached a new record during 2017, the industry stills struggle with low profitability. READ MORE

  2. 2. Where is my inhaler? : A simulation and optimization study of the Quality Control on Symbicort Turbuhaler at AstraZeneca

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för matematik och matematisk statistik; Umeå universitet/Institutionen för matematik och matematisk statistik

    Author : Shirin Haddad; Marie Nilsson; [2019]
    Keywords : Discrete event simulation; Evolution strategies; Distribution fitting;

    Abstract : Symbicort Turbuhaler is a medical device produced by the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca for the treatment of asthma and symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The delivery reliability of the product is dependent on the performance of the whole supply chain and as part of the chain the results from the department, Quality Control (QC), are mandatory to release the produced batches to the market.

    Keywords : High Pressure Die Casting; Additive Manufacturing; Finite Elements Analysis;

    Abstract : Additive manufacturing has a great potential to benefit die manufacture by shortening the lead time considerably and lifting the limitations on design complexity imposed by conventional manufacturing techniques. However, AM has its own requirements that together are known as Design for Additive Manufacturing and account for the process limitations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Adapting the lead time tree model to include immaterial activities : Extending the lead time tree model to enable mapping, efficiency evaluation and waste identification in order fulfillment processes

    University essay from Högskolan i Jönköping/JTH, Produktionsutveckling

    Author : Mathilda Jonsson Egeman; [2019]
    Keywords : Administrative processes; Boundary object; Critical path; Engineer to order; Information flow mapping; Process mapping; Time-phased product structure;

    Abstract : Much research regarding efficiency in manufacturing industry has historically been focused on the material activities of the shop floor. However, companies that merely focus on material activities when trying to improve lead times, risk losing potential for improvements within immaterial activities such as planning, engineering, design, and purchasing, which often constitute the most time consuming parts of the order fulfillment processes.
