Abstract (Swedish)
Problem description: Tetra Pak has started to develop their suppliers of
Distribution Equipment in pursuit to regain control over
quality and reducing lead-times. The next step in the
development of suppliers has been identified as to spread
Tetra Pak in-house capabilities in terms of World Class
Manufacturing and the Focused Improvement pillar
measures and procedures, which is focusing on
systematically identify and eliminate target losses to
enhance overall production efficiency.
Purpose: The purpose of this master thesis is to create an
implementation plan for the FI pillar as a foundation for the
continuing development of Tetra Pak’s suppliers of
distribution equipment, with a focus on Mastec Stålvall.

Purpose: The purpose of this master thesis is to create an
implementation plan for the FI pillar as a foundation for the
continuing development of Tetra Pak’s suppliers of
distribution equipment, with a focus on Mastec Stålvall.
Method: In this study a system approach has been used together with
a qualitative approach. Data has been gathered through
literature review, observation, interviews, and content
analysis. Gap analysis was performed to identify and close
the gaps for an implementation.
Conclusion: The analysis resulted in a recommended loss structure for
the supplier together with a measure to capture efficiency
both on a system level and on a sequence level for an initial
implementation. Gaps that need to be closed before an
implementation were presented together with an
implementation plan for the next steps to be taken in the
implementation of the Focused Improvement Pillar at
Mastec Stålvall. (Less)
