Popular Abstract in Swedish

I många företag och organisationer är planering av inköp, produktion, lagerhållning och transporter av stor betydelse för lönsamheten. Inom tillverkningsindustrin är det till exempel vanligt att värdet på lager, förråd och produkter i arbete överstiger värdet av hela produktionssystemet inklusive maskiner och byggnader. Effektiv styrning av produktion och lagerhållning för att få låga kapitalkostnader, hög kundservice och högt och jämnt kapacitetsutnyttjande är därför synnerligen viktigt. I denna doktorsavhandling behandlas koordination av materialflödet i lagersystem med flera nivåer samt samordnad lagerstyrning för flera artiklar.
Abstract
In many companies and organisations the planning and control of purchasing, production, inventory and transportation is of great importance. In a manufacturing industry it is not unusual that the value of the total stock of end products and parts in production is larger than the value of the production system itself with its machines and factory buildings. Efficient control of inventory and production, so that low capital costs, good customer service and a high and smooth capacity utilization are achieved, is one of the keys to success. In this thesis we consider various inventory control problems that are important in this context, and focus especially on coordination of levels and items.
