  1. 1. Identifying factors that cause inventory build-ups and how to solve it

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för innovation, design och teknik; Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för innovation, design och teknik

    Author : Anders Eriksson; Anes Music; [2019]
    Keywords : Lean; KANBAN; Internal logistics; FIFO; Inventory build-ups; standardized work;

    Abstract : Companies have put much focus on production systems to generate and maintain competitiveness which has contributed in less focus to logistics. The material flow is the process after the main processes and has therefore been regarded as “unimportant”. READ MORE

  2. 2. Input Data Analysis for Detailed Flow Simulation of Manual Assembly Lines

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap; Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap

    Author : David Kurbanov; Cristóbal Gómez; [2019]
    Keywords : Simulation; Plant simulation; Expert fit; Assembly line; Data collection; Losses;

    Abstract : This thesis work was carried out at a manufacturing plant in Sweden and they are producing a different kind of components for the company. This thesis work was about an assembly line in the factory where they needed a simulation model in Plant Simulation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Time study and flow-simulation : Current and future analysis

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap

    Author : Rasmus Gustafsson; [2019]
    Keywords : Time study; flow simulation; discrete-event simulation; lean; throughput; data collection;

    Abstract : Discrete-event simulations are increasingly being used to solve problems and to aid in decision making which are proving useful in the manufacturing industry. The main aim for this thesis was to compare the current production line and how implementing changes for a future state as a supporting basis for making the decision. READ MORE

  4. 4. Analysis of material flow and simulation-based optimization of transportation system : The combination of simulation and Lean to evaluate and design a transportation system

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap; Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap
