University essay from Högskolan i Jönköping/JTH, Maskinteknik; Högskolan i Jönköping/JTH, Maskinteknik


Skillingaryds stålrörsindustri AB handles different kinds of steel pipes and got their

market mainly in the furniture industry and in department stores. At the moment

the company find themselves in a strong up going course. In a few years the

company’s turnover has increased with over 10 million SEK. This has led to a

demand for structure changes and reorganizing through the company. The

development has forced the company to invest in new premises, which must be

adapted for the production and further expansion of the company.

This report describes how an analysis of the present layout has been made and

how effectivity and flow can be improved between machines, storage and personal.

By using the method Simplified systematic layout planning, three proposals have

been made. To give the clearest picture as possible of the layouts, all machines and

buildings were drawn in a 3D CAD-program called Solid Works. This will also

give the company resources to continue to work with the material in case of

another expansion.

Suggestion D scored the most points in the valuation and is considered to be the

best solution. It is based on a big central storage and a compact machine park. The

suggestion provides a smooth flow through the production line and short distances

between machines while having large spaces for storage and assembly.

During the course of this paper a few instances of superfluous transports, bad

storage handling and lack of order have been detected. Skillingaryds

stålrörsindustri AB is recommended to start working with 5S. Labelling of articles

is of importance when it comes to create order and standardization of areas to help

the personal to find the items they need.
