Problem & purpose Purus AB has after acquisitions and enhanced sales grown too big for their current site and hence purchased a large production building in Ystad. This building is going to be planned and designed in the most rational way possible by the authors of this master thesis. There is also going to be given general guidelines and improvements of the inventory control.<br>

Problem & purpose Purus AB has after acquisitions and enhanced sales grown too big for their current site and hence purchased a large production building in Ystad. This building is going to be planned and designed in the most rational way possible by the authors of this master thesis. There is also going to be given general guidelines and improvements of the inventory control.<br>
Method Litterature studies provided a solid theoretical base to stand on before a overview of the company and the problem was created via interviews with key persons and observations in the actual production. The largest part of the information gathering has been via the company ERP, Navision. This has given a detailed insight in all parts of the production and has been the foundation for the analysis and conclusion as well as the layouts and recommendations.<br>
Conclusion The authors have come up with proposals for logistical and operational improvements of today’s inventory control. These proposals involves classifying products based on value and order frequency as well as implementing lean-tools like JIT, 5S and SMED. Tables have been created via the ERP, with information that can be used for classification purposes and close mapping of the current production.<br>
After mapping the current operations situation and analyzing suitable enhancements, the authors were able to design a rational, efficient and flexible manufacturing site. The different operation related functions were placed so that information, work material and staff could move fast and smooth in the building. The layout proposals considered
hard aspects like transportation but also a softer side as belonging among the staffers.<br>
Detailed layouts for two suggestions were made. The machines in these were placed in a rational way based on data showing how much each of them were producing and how often they were switching tools, but also based on aesthetics. Finally the authors came with guidelines about how the products should be placed in the storages based on lists extracted from Navision. (Less)
