Abstract [en]

The Moelven Valåsen AB sawmill will within a 5-year period increase production from 375,000 𝑚3to approximately 500,000 𝑚3per year by building a new saw line. This has more led to the company going up from 2 shifts to 3 shifts to be able to meet this demand. This has led to the finished goods inventory before the customer has become full, and as a result the company has had to stand still. To investigate this, this thesis has investigated what the flow of the finished goods inventory looks like with the help of some tools to analyze the flow but at the same time develop the problems that may be the basis for this problem of the inventory becoming full. What has been concluded is that there are many different challenges to solving this problem. This thesis has provided an overview of where the problem may be in the flow and what it is due to. What has also been developed are some improvement proposals that could benefit the company and be developed so that the capacity of the warehouse can increase and become more efficient.  

Abstract [sv]

Sågverket Moelven Valåsen AB kommer inom en 5 års period att utöka produktionen från 375 000 𝑚3  till ca 500 000 𝑚3 per år genom att bygga en ny såglinje. Detta har mer fört att företaget har gått upp från 2 skift till 3 skift för att kunna möta denna efterfrågan. Det har lett till att färdigvarulagret innan kund har blivit fullt, och resultera i att företaget har behövt stått stilla. För att undersöka detta har detta examensarbete undersökt hur flödet på färdigvarulagret ser ut med hjälp av en del verktyg för att analysera flödet men samtidigt ta fram problematiken som kan tänkas ligga till grund till detta problem med att lagret blir fullt.  Det som har kommit fram till är att det finns många olika utmaningar för att lösa detta problem. Detta examensarbete har gett en överblick vart problematiken kan tänkas ligga i flödet och vad det beror på. Det som också har tagits fram är en del förbättringsförslag som skulle kunna gynna företaget och utvecklas till att kapaciteten på lagret kan öka och effektiviseras.
