Abstract
An increased demand of beverage cans has caused problems with
deliveries to several of Rexam’s customers. Rexam need to
improve their delivery performance in order to maintain customer
confidence.

3XUSRVH The purpose with this master thesis is to map, describe and
analyses the production plant in Fosie’s production planning;
regarding forecasting, material planning, safety stock, an optimal
production batch and capacity planning. This is performed both on
a central level as well as on an operational level. Secondly,
guidelines and suggestions are presented for a more effective
production planning.

changes. More accurate forecasts are decreasing the uncertainties.
With a previously released line load, follow-ups can be done
earlier and actions can be taken for possible deviations.
The size of the order quantities are decreasing and expect to
further be reduced. Nevertheless, an increased flexibility in the
production makes it possible. The demand expects to increase in
the future and a growing market as for the can industry, it is
important to keep and improve customer’s confidence. (Less)
