Abstract
Problem description – Recent changes has brought about new needs as well as new
demands on the operations of the warehouse. The current
system is very resistant to change and there is therefore a
tendency for the processes to not change at all. As a result
there is an increasing risk that the operations of the
warehouse will grow more and more out of date.
Objective – The aim of this investigation is to map the operations of the
warehouse at Unilever Bestfoods in Helsingborg. Our
objective is to, based on our investigation as well as the
literature, give suggestions on how to improve the processes
and in addition to this analyse possible effects of an
inventory management system.
Method – We have chosen to perform a case study,... (More)

Method – We have chosen to perform a case study, which means that
we have studied the specific case of the technical store at
Unilever Bestfoods in Helsingborg in depth. This gave us
the opportunity to investigate the processes of the technical
store in detail.
Conclusions – We recommend that Unilever Bestfoods implement an
inventory management system. It is our belief that all
processes and routines should be looked into in connection
to this. This gives the technical store the opportunity to
satisfy its customers needs in the future. An inventory
management system enables a more thorough control,
which will lead to decreased capital tye-up. (Less)
