Abstract
To construct a simulation model of Ruukki's future
production. The model will the n be analysed in several
aspects which will result in a proposal for how Ruukki is
to keep a service level of 99.8%.
This thesis is a case study with a quantitative approach
which includes interviews and data collection (designed
as a statistical survey) as main components.
Our thesis has an empirical orientation with an inductive
approach to data collection Le. open-minded. The basis
for this thesis is a positivistic perspective.
The object of study is the manufacturing of steering
cradles for container handlers.
In order for Ruukki to handle the increased volume a
new CNC needs to be purchased, a third shift must be
added to the robot group... (More)

In order for Ruukki to handle the increased volume a
new CNC needs to be purchased, a third shift must be
added to the robot group and two teams are needed for
assembly. The boundary for achieving a 99.8 % service
level is approximately three weeks which is not affected
to a significant degree by the addition of machine (Less)
